Ancol, UIN News Online – UIN Jakarta should be a role model of scientific and technological science development in the National State Islamic Higher Education Institution (PTKIN). This is necessary to increase the college’s contribution to applied science, in addition to Islamic studies as the core of the field of science offered.

This was conveyed by the Rector of UIN Jakarta Prof Dr Dede Rosyada MA during his speech at the 2nd International Conference on Science and Technology (ICOSAT) 2017 at Discovery Hotel & Convention Ancil, Jakarta, Thursday (8/10/2017).

Rector explained that the development of science study in UIN Jakarta is also in line with the spirit of institutional transformation from IAIN in the early 2000s. This transformation wants to integrate Islam and science so that UIN Jakarta can generate Islamic professionals.

In addition to institutionalization, facilitation of the development of science and technology studies is pursued by an increase in lecturer research grants and cooperation with other universities. This year, for example, UIN Jakarta is allocating a lecturer research grant through Research and Publishing Center worth approximately Rp 13 billion.

“It is intended that UIN Jakarta can contribute more to the life of the ummah,” said Rector.

Meanwhile, 2nd International Conference on Science and Technology (ICOSAT) 2017 at Discovery Hotel & Convention Ancol itself was held following the implementation of the same conference in previous year. This year, the seminar has raised topic on “Promoting Sustainable Agriculture, Food Security, Energy, and Environment Through Science and Technology for Development.”

According to Dean of FST UIN Jakarta Dr Agus Salim M.Si, the selection of this theme is based on the expectation of scientific and technological science contribution in promoting agriculture, supply security, energy and sustainable environment.

“This conference itself invites researcher, lecturers from various national and global universities,” said Agus.

The committee publicly noted that there were 77 research papers presented by the researcher in the event. In detail, 28 titles in the field of environment, 5 titles of energy, 13 food clusters, and 31 titles in agricultural clusters. (usa)
