In 2007, UGM declared its vision to be a World Class Research University, which is oriented toward meeting the needs of nation, based on Pancasila (The Five Basic Principles of the Republic of Indonesia). Considering the importance of research activities, UGM has taken several steps that put much emphasis on research. One of the steps is uniting research activity and community services into one institution called the Institute for Research and Community Services (LPPM).
Institute for Research and Community Services or LPPM (Lembaga Penelitian dan Pengabdian Kepada Masyarakat) of UGM was born as a result of merger between Research Institute and Community Services Institute, both of UGM. The legal basis for its establishment is Rector Decree number 47/P/SK/HT/2006. Through unification of the two institutions, it is expected that the result of research activities carried out in UGM benefit the society and are sufficiently close to the needs of stake holders. It is further expected by the merger that the role of LPPM in supporting UGM to reach its vision as an internationally leading research university could be optimized.
Structurally, the position of LPPM is under the coordination of Senior Vice Rector for Education, Research, and Community Services. Therefore, in carrying out its activities LPPM consults and reports research results to UGM Senior Vice Rector for Education, Research, and Community Services. The task of LPPM is to facilitate, coordinate, and conduct research and community service activities in UGM, as well as perform continuous and sustainable improvement of quality and quantity of research and community services in UGM, and carry out multi-disciplinary and/or collaborative researches and community services respectively.
