Head of Innovation and Cooperation Bureau, Director of Innovation and Industrial Cooperation, Deputy Director of Innovation and Industrial Cooperation, Innovation Manager, Supervisor of Intellectual Property Management, Supervisor of Downstream Research Results, and Undip Innovation staff.
This activity was opened by the Vice Rector for Research, Innovation and Cooperation at Diponegoro University, Prof. Dr. Ir. Ambariyanto, M.Sc. representing the Rector of Diponegoro University, Prof. Dr. Yos Johan Utama, S.H., M.Hum. who in his remarks expressed his gratitude for the support of invention works from Undip inventors in the form of patents and simple patents. They obtained the Certificate of Appreciation at the Top 10 Higher Education Award event with the Most Number of Patent Submissions, which was received on Monday, November 21, 2022 in Jakarta, where Undip was represented by the Vice Rector for Academic and Student Affairs, Prof. Faisal, S.E., M.Si., Ph.D.
The Vice Rector for Research, Innovation and Cooperation of Undip also advised that lecturers as inventors at Undip could continue to involve their guidance students and be accompanied and escorted by the Innovation team (Directorate of Innovation and Industrial Cooperation and the Innovation Section). Thus they could continue to improve the results of their investment work in the form of Intellectual Property Rights at Diponegoro University, including Copyrights, Patents, Simple Patents, and Industrial Designs. It is also hoped that the existing patents will have economic value in the future and are ready to be commercialized.
In the activity report conveyed by drh. Dian Wahyu Harjanti, Ph.D., although outreach regarding patents has been carried out at university and faculty levels in collaboration with DJKI, direct assistance/guidance activities for researchers to perfect the preparation of patent registration documents are urgently needed. By drafting a patent in accordance with the provisions in writing patent application claims, it is hoped that the substantive examination will run smoothly and there will be no revisions.
Rani Nuradi, S.Si., Head of the DJKI Patent Examination Sub-Directorate as one of the resource persons, conveyed the importance of making proper specifications in writing patent applications so that later the patents will be strong because in commercialization, the industry wants strong patent protection. Do not let the value of products weaken before they develop.
With this event, it is expected that registered patents will continue to increase in terms of quantity and quality because Diponegoro University is supported by a good research ecosystem and funding from the State Budget and Non-State Budget. The entire committee hoped that the material presented by the resource persons will be of benefit to all participants in the Patent Drafting Camp Batch 2.
