Rapid response was given by the Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) on Indonesia's roadmap and strategy for implementing Industrial Revolution 4.0, Making Indonesia 4.0, released by Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Wednesday (5/4)).

Together with the National Research Council (DNR), legislative members of the House of Representatives (DPRD) and ITS practitioners held a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) to provide input to the government regarding the urgency of innovation and readiness to welcome the industry era 4.0 on Monday (9th) at ITS Rectorate.

Presenting speakers include Ir Irnanda Laksanawan MSc Eng PhD as the representative of DNR, member of Commission XI Budget Agency of the House of Representative Ir HM Romahurmuziy MT, Director of Center for Science and Technology of Automated Control System (SKO) Nur Yuniarto ST PhD, President Director PT INTI Dr Darman Mappangara M Eng Sc MBA, as well as ITS Vice Rector for Innovation, Cooperation, Kealumnian, and International Relations ITS Prof. Dr. Ir Ketut Buda Artana ST MSc. This discussion focuses on the role of universities in supporting the national industry through technopark research and innovation.

Ketut Buda Artana explained that technopark is one of the most relevant implementation in realizing the Industrial Revolution 4.0 Indonesia through universities. In China, 25 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) comes from the technopark sector which also accounts for 23 percent of total state taxes.

"Surely this can be an Indonesian reference on the amount of benefits that can be obtained through this sector," he explained eagerly.

Furthermore, Ketut said, the development of technopark field is also in harmony with ITS vision that first develop technopark area in the region. "Currently ITS already has three Scientific and Technology Center (PUI) in the automotive, creative and maritime industries," he explained.

This is agreed by HM Romahurmuziy who explained that the development of technopark has been in accordance with the Presidential Regulation of the Republic of Indonesia no. 106 of 2017 on the Science and Technology Area.

"Development of science and technology area can not be separated from the role of universities, because again again the thinkers nest in institutions," said the leader of one political party in Indonesia.

Continuing, the number of PUIs in Indonesia can accelerate the birth of new innovations in technology. "Innovations born from companies are almost rarely heard by universities have homework to realize the research they have," said the man who familiarly called Romi is
The existence of ITS as the most innovative universities in Indonesia, Romi continued, can be a punishing for other universities to continue to conduct research and innovation for the betterment of the nation.

"My hope is that ITS can be a pioneer in science and technology innovation in Indonesia to answer the challenges in the era of Internet of Things," he said while smiling.

On the same occasion, Nur Yuniarto, explained several reasons why the automotive industry is difficult to develop in Indonesia. National electric car researcher considers there are six factors that cause slow growth of the automotive industry in Indonesia.

"Starting from the low level of goodwill in Indonesia, the deadly regulation, the lack of nationalism, the uncoordinated and integrated development, the distrust of the nation itself to the nurture of other nations is the lethality of the development of the automotive industry in Indonesia," explained the lecturer of Mechanical Engineering ITS .

Therefore, in this forum also discussed about the discourse of the Innovation Act by the National Research Council. Ketut, as a representative of the university, welcomed the discourse. Professor of Shipping System Engineering said that the Law on Innovation is expected to provide guarantees for research efforts that led to the direction of commercialization and innovation.

"Besides, it is also necessary to guarantee that innovation and research activities get enough fund from the government so that there is no such thing as research failure due to lack of fund," he said while laughing.

The outcome of this FGD will be translated ITS as a college response in the face of Industrial Revolution 4.0. "Later, it will have an impact on the education system, institutional, until the strategic program of ITS in the future," Ketut concluded. (ist/zainuddin).
