We involve lecturers, students, ASN (state civil servants), the general public, and all parties,” explained Andre.

Of the 729 participants, ITS and the Surabaya City Government captured the top 10 finalists. They were selected as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of the 2022 Suroboyo Innovation Competition to get a Mayor’s certificate. The types of innovation contested include appropriate technology, technological innovation, non-technological innovation, economic innovation, and non-economic innovation.

The participants went through three stages in developing the innovation: initiation, trial, and implementation phases. “As the first competition, I hope that it will continue and involve more Surabaya residents to provide creative ideas that can be implemented,” said Andre.
