Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) welcomed a virtual visit from the Consulate General of Japan in Surabaya on Wednesday (7/7). The visit was attended by the newly elected Japanese Consulate General, Mr Takeyama Kenichi and his staff. From ITS, the visit was attended by ITS Rector, Prof. Dr Ir. Mochamad Ashari M.Eng., along with other members of ITS Executive Board and staff.
Through this visit, Mr Takeyama intended to strengthen cooperation with ITS and to develop more projects with ITS and Indonesia. Prof. Ashari, in his remarks, stated that ITS
partnerships with Japan, especially with some of the best universities in Japan, have been going very well for a long time.
Considering the major development of Japanese technology and innovation, Prof. Ashari wished to initiate more collaborations with Japan because it is about time that universities become educational centres and enhance entrepreneurship activities. Regarding the opportunities, ITS Vice-Rector for Research, Innovation, Cooperation, and Alumni, Bambang Pramujati, PhD explained that ITS has 10 productive
research centres and is expected to cooperate further with universities in Japan.
Two parties hoped that this meeting would mark the new chapter of relations between ITS and Japan.
