Indonesia has abundant natural resources. Natural wealth owned by Indonesia can become a great power in global economy. Unfortunately, the value of natural resources owned by Indonesia is very small. Therefore, the role of higher education is necessary in producing human resources as well as science and technology to manage natural resources.

"College has a role in producing educated labour or human resources, via trainings for instance," said Director General of strengthening innovation of Ministry of Research Technology and Higher Education Dr. Ir. Jumain Appe, M.Si.

Whereas science and technology can be used to have innovative research. In a national workshop for Manager of Academic Business at PTN BLU (Perguruan Tinggi Negeri-Badan Layanan Umum/Public University-Public Service Entity) throughout Indonesia, Jumain Appe mentioned that research conducted recently was limited only for publication and not much is utilized by the community.

"Therefore, research down-streaming is necessary to maximize the role of innovation in economy," he said.

For colleges, down-streaming of innovative science and technology can be used as an effort for academic business entities in finance management.

"Academic Business Entities will manage the business according to the main task and function namely using human resources and utilizing technology. Although BUA (Badan Usaha Akademik/Academic Business Entities) was allowed to manage business outside of the main task and function by Ministry of Finance, do not let in the future college will merely prioritize managing business rather than implementing science and implementing science and technology," he said.

Financial management undertaken by BUA later will be used for the interests of college development.

National workshop on manager of academic business this year is the first time to be held. On the occasion, President Director of BUA of Brawijaya University Prof. Gugus Irianto mentioned that national workshop is held as media to exchange ideas and information of college's BUA Managers in Indonesia. Expected by the workshop can produce an effort to strengthen college. [Oky Dian/Humas UB/trans. Denok]
