BANJARMASIN (TABIRkota) – Lambung Mangkurat University (ULM) in 2021 has patented 51 inventions and research carried out by the university’s lecturers.

The patents cover a wide range of inventions and research fields, including social sciences, agriculture, medicine, and engineering.

“Our researchers’ productivity have been well-maintained despite the pandemic”, Prof Sutarto Hadi, Rector of ULM, said recently.

A patent is a legal acknowledgment of intellectual property registered at the Directorate General of Intellectual Property of Ministry of Law and Human Rights of the Republic of Indonesia.

Patent applications must satisfy the following three criteria:

First, novelty. It means that an invention must not have been made public before the date of the application.

Second, inventive step. This means that a product or process must be an inventive solution. It cannot be a solution that would be obvious to a manufacturer.

Third, industrial applicability. This criterion implies that it must be possible to actually manufacture the new invention.

At ULM, Prof Sutarto Hadi obliges lecturers to carry out research, and the university provides a reward of Rp 15 million for each patented invention or research.

The reward is a form of appreciation for the intellectual work carried out by each lecturer.

The results of the inventions and research are expected to contribute to the wider community.

All the research funding carried out by ULM lecturers come from the university’s PNBP (non-tax state revenue) which allocated Rp 11.7 billion, and the Ditlitabmas (Directorate of Research and Community Service) with a total of nearly Rp 4 billion.

The ULM’S PNBP funding was given to 846 lecturers who conducted 369 research, and the Ditlitabmas budget supported 26 research projects involving 78 lecturers.

The total research funding amounting to more than Rp 15 million has been fully absorbed in research projects of 2021. (ant/sahrudin)
