In his Speach, the Head of Sub Unit Ditreskrimsus of Reasoning and Creativity of Ristekdikti Dr Misbah Fikrianto MM MSi expressed his appreciation to UMM who had held the KKCTBN 2019 event very well. "We express a very high appreciation and praise for the event of this year's KKCTBN at UMM with excellence," he said.
There were at least 3 factors that caused the KKCTBN 2019 event at UMM to be special. First, the number of participants this year had doubled from the previous year. Second, the assessment of KKCTBN at UMM this year used an application so that it was more transparent and accountable. The last, holding poster requirements made it different from the previous year.
Vice Rector I Prof. Dr. Syamsul Arifin MSi said that UMM had an ecosystem and facilities and infrastructure that strongly supported the academic activities of the academic community, for example, the artificial lake used by the KKCTBN competition this year. "Maybe the founders of this campus already had an imagination that someday, UMM will be asked to host this KKCTBN," said Syamsul. (win)
