In his remarks, ITS Chancellor Prof. Dr. Ir Mochamad Ashari MEng IPU AEng revealed a number of achievements that ITS had achieved in 62 years of working for Indonesia. Starting from fulfilling technology for the industrial world to healthcare, ITS continues to dare to crawl and develop using various technological trends and good inter-institutional job growth.
More than that, ITS also needs to increase the contribution and active role of the community which refers to science and technology by strengthening a network of facilities for society, such as expanding existing fields of knowledge. “ITS has succeeded in establishing a department in the health sector, namely medical technology and will continue to expand its domain by preparing medical faculties,” he said.
After 62 years of active contribution, the chancellor, who is usually called Ashari, explained that by expanding the existing fields of knowledge, educational institutions will become the basis for achieving national goals. Through education, especially in the fields of science and technology, ITS is expected to continue to expand innovation to achieve progress in a country.
In line with this, the scientific oration delivered by Jusuf Kalla also highlighted Indonesia’s progress based on science, technology and innovation. He said the purpose of the nation is to advance the nation. “Innovation always has a relationship with technology. Technology always has a relationship with education,” explained the former Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare of the Republic of Indonesia, who is familiarly called JK.
He said that increasing productivity by utilizing technology is the key for a country to achieve long-term growth. Accumulating innovation and technology by building more production facilities will generate growth in the medium term. But in the long run growth will decline and eventually approach zero.
In order to realize a culture of innovation, in Indonesia there are so many pre-conditions. By photographing Indonesia’s current condition, JK can measure how ready Indonesia is to innovate in facing the knowledge-based economy and green energy era, as well as find solutions to existing problems.
With the existence of a development concept that focuses on innovation and technology, the former Minister of People’s Welfare of the Republic of Indonesia also mentioned the basis for inventions that work and are in line with the wheels of the nation’s progress. “All of this will always go hand in hand with technological discoveries, so as to produce efficient performance and continue to be the mainstay of the nation,” he explained.
