In-house Seminar Presents Initial Outputs of SEAMEO BIOTROP’s 2011 DIPA Research Projects - 563 time(s) visited
Shared this through:

Initial outputs of SEAMEO BIOTROP’s 12 research projects for 2011 showed promising implications for commercialization and policy decision-making as presented during a half-day in-house seminar on 29 September 2011 held at the Centre’s Jati Room in Bogor.  These research projects are funded by the Government of Indonesia and are better known as DIPA research projects. 

In wrapping up the seminar, Dr. Jess C. Fernandez, SEAMEO BIOTROP’s Deputy Director for Programme and Marketing, congratulated the Centre’s scientists and junior researchers for the significant progress of their respective research projects.  He encouraged them to dig deeper on analyzing and interpreting their data to generate significant contributions to the body of knowledge in their respective fields of study and, at the same time, come up with practical recommendations towards creating better impact pathways for the intended beneficiaries of their research results. 

Expected to be completed by mid November 2011, the 12 DIPA research projects  and their key proponents are as follows:
