Abstract: With more than 17.000 islands Indonesia is one of the largest archipelagos of the world. This inducts a huge national development task. But it also holds the chance to become one of the world’s forerunners creating sustainable regional and local human-environment systems. Core problem of the development of small, outer islands is how to initiate and to sustain economic & social development whist protecting environment/abundant biodiversity. The paper addresses this problem by presenting a holistic and integrated development approach. Under the framework of the Sustainable Island Development Initiative (SIDI), several interdisciplinary Projects have been launched. The project Student Research & Development Teams (SR&DT) focuses on the intensive utilization of practice partnerships between industry and universities. The results from this project deliver valuable input for the elaboration of well-considered island development strategies. The paper gives an insight into two, island-specific concepts, the development of new concepts for island tourism, and the development of high-value products from tropical plants.
