This collaboration implements IKU-3 of the University, which mandates that lecturers carry out activities outside the campus—in addition, following UNDIP Strategic Plan 2 also requires developing lecturer expertise in industry. Moreover, this activity shows the process of transfer and development of science and technology from academics to the development of Indonesia. This collaboration is also expected to initiate other partnerships between Undip and external parties.
