The Ministry of Research and Technology / National Agency for Research and Technology gave an appreciation for human resources, science and technology, intellectual property, and management of journals and publications in the form of the 2020 Productive and Quality Intellectual Property Rights Awards. This award proposes to enhance motivation for lecturers, researchers, engineers, and other science and technology human resources to maintain their creativity working at any time in the form of publications, intellectual property, and journal management.
Bambang PS Brodjonegoro, as the Minister of Research and Technology / Head of the National Innovation Research Agency (Menristek / Head of National Agency for Research and Technology), hoped that the award could become a booster for researchers to keep conducting research and innovation for Indonesia's future development.
"This award is a form of appreciation from the government to some fields that have contributed to research in Indonesia. Those fields including human resources, science, and technology, community groups, as well as research, development, study, and application of science and technology (R & D) institutions at the central and regional levels that have contributed to research in Indonesia," said Bambang on Wednesday (18/11).
In the middle of this award's virtual handover, Bambang also admitted these awards dedicated to those who have contributed a part of their time to create productive intellectual property rights, high-quality scientific articles, and Indonesian scientific journals with an international reputation.
