ITS’ Department of Marine Engineering, Faculty of Marine Technology, has held a webinar with the theme of Harmonizing Central, Provincial, Regency, and City Regulations in Increasing Investment in the Marine and Fisheries Sector. It discusses the regulations created at the planning and implementation level that can optimize the utilization of marine resources and can increase investment in the marine and fisheries sector. This is due to the conflicts of interest that often occur, such as in determining the boundaries of the management area, investment and utilization of resources, conflicts of authority, and licensing. All conflicts will be overcome by solutions from the experts.
ITS’ Department of Ocean Engineering and Tohoku University initiated a collaboration through creating and expanding the professional networks to foster the relationship between the University, industry, business, and communities across the country. This collaboration is also supported by the Indonesian Coastal Management Expert Association (HAPPI) and the Indonesian Coastal Engineering Expert Association (PARPI).
The Conservation Bureau, in collaboration with the Ocean Engineering students of the Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), held a discussion on the preservation of marine biota. The discussion aimed to raise awareness of the importance of marine biodiversity and the role of the community in protecting it. Through this collaboration, ITS students were provided with an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in marine conservation and contribute to the protection of marine biota.
