Increasing Patent Rights Acquisition, UNNES Holds a Patent Description Preparation Workshop

Tuesday, 16 April 2019 | 11:13 WIB


One of the targets of Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNNES) in Nawatarget in 2019 is a patent for 30 titles. Meanwhile, the number of patents (granted) owned by UNNES for the time being is only 10 patents.

This is the background of the holding of the Patent Description Preparation Workshop on Monday to Tuesday (15-16 / 4) at the UNNES Research and Community Service Institution Building (LP2M).

The policy breakthrough was carried out by researchers originating from various research and community service activities with DRPM and DIPA funding sources . However, most of these innovations have not been made to obtain patents.

There are several factors that can cause this, including the lack of understanding of patents, patent registration procedures, limited time and costs, and the busyness of lecturers.

To overcome this problem, special policies need to be carried out among others by implementing the Program to Facilitate the Acquisition of Patent Rights. In this program, the inventors will be accompanied starting from registration of patent description, filing of patent documents, assistance in registration costs, sub-examination to obtain a patent certificate (granted).

The activity supported by 50 (fifty) inventions from the UNNES lecturers involved 12 experts from the KI LP2M UNNES Center and 4 experts from the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI), Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia.

The expected program, facilitation approved by the patent, can be carried out routinely so that it can boost UNNES patent licenses. This acquisition is one of the steps of UNNES in realizing Nawatarget in 2019 and contributing to future scientific development.

Peter Carey: Forget Literature, We Are Cut Off with Ancestors

Peter Carey: Forget Literature, We Are Cut Off with Ancestors

The Indonesian people are threatened with being cut off from their ancestors if they forget literature, especially oral literature. In oral literature there are various values ​​and knowledge about the environment. If literature is forgotten, knowledge and values ​​will also be forgotten.

Trinity Collage Oxford University historian Peter Carey said that when he was a speaker of the Language and Literature Conference (KBS) III at the Santika Premiere Hotel, Tuesday (10/16).

According to Prince Diponegoro’s biographer, Indonesians have a system of local knowledge that is packaged through stories.

That knowledge, among other things, includes natural phenomena and disasters. He gave an example, one of the works was La Galigo.

“If we inherit the stories, we might be wiser in responding to disasters,” he said.

He added, the severity of the impact of natural disasters in Indonesia was also due to lack of knowledge about environmental conditions. In fact, knowledge of the environment has been owned by the ancestors of the Indonesian people.

Carey regretted the low attention to stories and old manuscripts owned by Indonesia.

This attitude must be changed because Indonesia will receive thousands of manuscripts from England and the Netherlands for some time. These ancient texts should be treated as valuable treasures of knowledge.

Indonesian Language Courses are Increasingly Interested in Saudi Arabia

Indonesian Language Courses are Increasingly Interested in Saudi Arabia

Jeddah — The Indonesian Language Course for Foreign Speakers (BIPA) program organized by the General Consulate of the Republic of Indonesia (KJRI) Jeddah is increasingly in demand by Saudi citizens and expatriates living in Jeddah and the surrounding cities.

It is proven that the number of applicants who are interested in following the BIPA program from year to year is increasing. This program was previously held once a year. Participants reasoned learning Indonesian because they worked in muassasah that served pilgrims. Some claim need to master Indonesian because they serve pilgrims from Indonesia at the immigration and security counters at the airport. Others claim they work in a number of importing companies and companies that market Indonesian products in Saudi Arabia.

“Usually BIPA is only held once a year for three months. But this year we added it to twice because of the many requests from the people here who want to learn Indonesian, “said Jeddah’s Consul General (Consul), Mohamad Hery Saripudin.

To answer the public interest, added the Consul General, the Indonesian Consulate General in Jeddah held a second wave of Indonesian Language Course Program for Foreign Speakers (BIPA) which was officially opened by the Indonesian Consul General on Monday (15/10).

The opening of the BIPA Course II program which was attended by 62 participants took place Monday night (15/10) local time in the Main Lobby of the Indonesian Consulate General in Jeddah. Participants consisted of 50 Saudis, 8 Yemeni citizens, 1 Jordanian national, 1 US citizen, and two participants, each of whom were Mauritanian and Pakistani citizens.

According to the committee, within two weeks, as many as 107 people filed registration files including completed forms, photocopies of passports, identity cards, photo passages, written information about the purpose of learning Indonesian and a permit from sponsors for non-Saudis.

The BIPA lecturer in wave II was Hasan Busri MSI from the Arab Language Education study program Universitas Negeri Semarang (UNNES) as a result of the collaborative effort initiated by the Indonesian Consulate General in Jeddah with the universities in the Central Java Capital City.

In front of the participants who attended the opening, the Consul said, the BIPA course program was a form of support from the Government of Indonesia in the vision of the 2030 Government of Saudi Arabia, one of which was the development of the tourism sector as part of the economic diversification policy.

This is also in line with the stipulation of Madinah as the “Islamic Tourism Capital of 2017” in a ministerial meeting of OIC member states in 2015 in Niamey, the capital of Nigeria.

The Consul added, the number of Indonesian pilgrims and umrah pilgrims reached more than 1.2 million people with a concentration of their movements in three cities: Jeddah, Mecca and Medina.

“Moreover, the Saudi Government has launched a new tourist destination in other cities that are open to public visitors, of course this will bring economic impact,” concluded the Consul General.

The second wave BIPA course program is scheduled to take place until December.

Semarang (25/7), Faculty of Law, Universitas Negeri Semarang (FH UNNES) reads various current dynamics of law development by holding an International Conference on Indonesian Law Studies.

The activity that carries the theme of Current Issues of Indonesian Law Studies in a Global Context presents speakers from various countries.

Prof. Reid Mortensen, Professor of Law from the Southern Queensland University Law School, Australia, revealed that current law developments require experts and law practitioners to continue to hold ethics and morals. According to him, ethics and morals for the law profession become very important amid the current global currents.

In contrast to Reid, Prof. Abdul Samat Musa, Professor of the Faculty of Law and Sharia at the Islamic University of Malaysia, and Dr Mas Nooraini binti Haji Mohiddin, law expert of the Islamic University of Sultan Sharif Ali Brunei Darussalam, both saw the prospect of Islamic economic law in a global context.

Both asserted that one of the challenges in the civil and economic law of Islam was how to compete and answer the challenges in the international business world.

Prof. Yoshiki Kurumisawa, Professor of Law from Waseda University, Japan sees more specifically the law aspects of land ownership. According to him, current land issues are important because many cases occur in this regard. “How is the position of the government in the ownership of land for individuals, or the development in the name of the public interest, always a debacle”, said Prof. Yoskihi who is also the Dean of the Japanese Waseda University Law Faculty.

Prof. Sumanto Al Qurtubi, Professor of Cultural Anthropology from King Fahd University, Saudi Arabi, Dr. Vanitha Sundra Karean from Southern Queensland University of Australia, and Dani Muhtada MPA PhD from Universitas Negeri Semarang presents a discourse on the development of human rights and law protection, especially for minorities .

Prof. Sumanto who is also the founder of Nusantara Institute revealed that the fulfillment of human rights both in Indonesia and internationally still finds many obstacles, one of which is a different law system. In line with Prof. Sumanto, Dr. Vanitha said that the problem of law systems that differ between countries, especially in the Asia Pacific region, is a challenge which until now is still being sought for a way out.

Dean of FH UNNES, Dr. Rodiyah SPd SH MSi in her remarks revealed that the problems and development of law must be viewed carefully and precisely, so as to be able to provide solutions not only for Indonesia but the international community at large. “Through this activity, we hope to provide a forum for experts to exchange and provide solutions to existing law problems,” said Rodiyah.

This international conference activity was also attended by student participants from several countries, such as Japan, Malaysia, Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia, and Libya.
