ITS Campus, ITS News –As one of the best technology campuses in Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) always provides the latest technology for the benefit of the Indonesian people. This time, through the Center for the Study of Public, Business, and Industrial Policy (PKKPBI), ITS succeeded in establishing the Appropriate Technology (TTG) and Innovation Corner located behind the Saiful Anwar Regional General Hospital (RSUD), Malang.

Head of ITS PKKPBI, Dr. Ir Arman Hakim Nasution MEng, said the TTG and Innovation Corner aims to accelerate the downstream of TTG through Village-Owned Enterprises (BUMDes) Malang. In addition, he added that the place serves as a forum for developing innovations that the people of Malang will carry out in the future. “ITS should spread their work, especially the provision of their TTG to the community,” he said.

Then, Arman stated that the urgency of establishing the TTG Corner was to answer some of the concerns experienced by young entrepreneurs in Malang. These concerns include technology and products that are still classified as conventional, inefficient raw materials, and various other problems. “Therefore, ITS should provide alternative or even better options than before,” he said.

Because of that, ITS has succeeded in donating some of its products and technology to facilitate community activities by producing positive outputs. Starting from prosthetic hands for people in need, plastic skulls to promote the health sector, giving new hybrid corn varieties, and various other TTG.
