Ambariyanto, MSc., During the Working Meeting of the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of Kemenkumham in Denpasar Bali, Friday (26/4) some time ago. In 2018 UNDIP submitted 99 applications for patent rights.

According to Prof. Ambariyanto, in the work meeting the top 10 announced the highest number of patent applicants and only UNDIP were invited to receive the award. “It’s an honor for UNDIP who was specially invited by the Minister. He also gave a special message to UNDIP through me to continue to improve the performance of innovation through patents and down streaming and commercialization of patents through cooperation with the private sector and industry,” he said.
For this achievement Prof. Ambariyanto who represented UNDIP leaders expressed his gratitude for the work and performance of the research lecturers and students, who have dedicated themselves as inventors and innovators who have produced many patent proposals.
