Environmental pollution remains a major issue in the world’s environmental challenges today. This is evident from various environmental conventions such as the Stockholm Convention, Minamata Convention, etc. To address these environmental issues, research based on Chemistry needs to be developed to improve the quality of the environment in the future. On May 30, 2022, the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (FMIPA) at UGM initiated collaboration with the Clean Technology and Environment Research Center at BRIN in Serpong.
In this collaboration initiation, several joint activities were agreed upon, including various collaborative research projects, co-supervision of students at the Ph.D., master’s, and bachelor’s levels, student internship activities, and more. Through this collaboration, it is expected that there will be knowledge sharing and the utilization of facilities to optimize various joint studies and activities conducted.
