Greetings from GoLive Indonesia Coordinator

He is currently granted a patent from Indonesian Government for synthesis of biodiesel through simultaneous reactions ozonolysis and transesterification. The discussion was moderated by Anne Romea, a new student in The University of Adelaide whom also a GoLive Indonesia volunteer.


He began the presentation with explaining definition of patent and invention, highlighting the differences on both concepts. He continued with elaborating the differences between patent and simple patent, breaking down characteristic of both, and also encouraging the attendees that a person doesn’t have to study science or have higher degrees of research to create a new invention.


Edy Purwanto explaining his experience on patent registration

For examples of simple patent, he provided pictures of paper clip, ring-pull cans, aircraft seat buckle, and post-it notes. He mentioned that invention products are not necessarily sophisticated, and most of the times they are just simple things we encountered in our daily life.


He continued with explication on the process of designing research that could produce new invention that’s patentable, before sharing his research and the journey of obtaining his patent.


Attendees paying attention

His presentation concluded after 45 minutes long and continued with question and answer session. As many as 15 persons were immersed in the discussion involving questions concerning the property rights of batik, tempeh, cost of applying a patent, royalties associated with patent, and administration procedures concerning patent.

GoLive Indonesia is back with their first discussion series on March 10, 2017. The first discussion series of 2017 talks about “Scholarship in Australia and future alumni collaboration”. The discussion series was held at 715 Conference room, Ingkarni Wardli Building, North Terrace Campus,  The University of Adelaide.

The discussion goes for 3 hours and separated into 3 sessions, the 3-possible way to get a scholarship in Australia, how to submit an application to an Australian university, and possible alumni collaborations and contributions. The discussion series is followed by a lunch networking session hosted by the School of Psychology, Faculty of Sciences, The University of Adelaide.


Session 1 Panelists (Left to Right): Kristin Ramlan, Ari Arifin Danuwijaya, Indra Yohanes Kiling and Yanuar Syapaat

The session begins with warm greetings from GoLive Indonesia coordinator, Gracia Girsang.  Followed with elaboration on LPDP scholarship from Yanuar Syapaat and Indra Kiling. Both speakers share some tips and tricks on how to get LPDP scholarship; where some of the important points are the return agreement requirements, age limit, and to provide and prepare thoroughly particularly when the course you desire is not on the scholarship provider’s priority. Indra Kiling deliberately gave himself a bit of pressure by delaying his LPDP application to stimulate productivity.

Then,  the explanation on AAS (Australian Awards) scholarship, were presented by Kristin Ramlan and Ari Arifin. Both speakers emphasize that future applicants need to choose the most suitable awards option for themselves  – either short or long-term awards -, check discussion forum for first-hand experiences and make sure their IELTS score is sufficient, and carefully prepare for the interview. This session is closed with Aryani Tri Wrastari’s descriptions on Endeavour Scholarship.   Aryani explains 9 crucial tips in completing your Endeavour application. She emphasizes that it’s not about your major or your age is within the limit, it is more towards you showing your achievement and experiences that particularly highlights your networks, partnerships, and collaborations.

The second session begins straight after the other one, highlighting information on how to apply to an Australian university. This session were led by Indra Kiling and Gracia Girsang. This session encourages future students to gather information and research from available university websites and publication in relation to finding the right supervisor for their research topic. By doing so, students will be able to capture the supervisor’s interest towards their research topic and gain their support. Gracia then continues the session by providing an example of how to construct a research proposal. She highlights that in writing the research proposal, future research candidates need to be concise and flexible. A well-written proposal with around 1000-1500 words would be sufficient to get the attention of potential supervisors.

After a short break, the last session wraps up the discussion series by encouraging current and future students to contribution and to give back to their country. Margaretha, one of the panelists in Session three, reiterated that by utilising the beauty of networking, we can join a community and get involved and work towards giving back to Indonesia.  One of the attendees, Enceria Damanik, underlines how educated Indonesian students and graduates studying abroad are greatly appreciated and that Indonesia is very much looking forward to their return.

They were greeted by Professor Anna Chur-Hansen, Head of School of Psychology, Professor Deborah Turnbull, and Professor Nick Burns, also from the School of Psychology. Introduction to the School of Psychology and its research focus area were provided by Prof. Anna Chur-Hansen.

Continued with an opportunity for some of the students to share their research interest and possibility of pursuing a research degree at the school. This session is filled with enthusiasm and dynamic discussion about the students’ research topics and how to pursue it. The lunch session concluded with a group photo and excited potential higher degree research students.

GoLive Discussion Series Highlights – 15 June 2016

Talking about cancer can be daunting for most people. However, not the case with GoLive Indonesia discussion series. This month, GoLive Indonesia is grateful to  have Dr Chandra Kirana, Research Officer at Basil Hetzel Research Institute, Faculty of Medicine at the University of Adelaide, as our presenter. Dr Chandra got her degree as a Biologist from Gadjah Mada University and completed her PhD at the University of Adelaide and worked at CSIRO Human Nutrition in Adelaide and Wakefield Biomedical Research Institute in Wellington in New Zealand.

The discussion on colorectal cancer (CRC) highlights on how this particular type of cancer is usually found in older generation and developed countries, while increasing trend is also found in developing countries. In the case of Indonesia, Dr Chandra elaborates that there is still very little research being done on CRC. Furthermore, she enunciates previous research which found that the risk of getting cancer due to genetic history is only at the 10% level. The way we treat our body, what we eat and what kind of lifestyle we choose pose a greater 30% cancer risk. Similarly, what we do to the environment (pollution, drinking water) and virus or bacterial infestation expose 30% each of cancer risk to humans.


Q&A session – GoLive Discussion Series

While talking about CRC prevention and detection, Dr Chandra explains how Australian Government set up a program that automatically ask permanent resident and citizen at the age of 50 to send their stool sample for a faecal occult blood test as CRC screening. When dealing with cancer, samples, data and early detection mechanism is imperative.

Our discussion then establish that high fibre diet is extremely important in staying healthy. When asked about Indonesian cuisine, Dr Chandra describes that Indonesian’s diet is rich of fibre, especially our green vegetables. In addition to that, she also emphasizes on the benefit of having turmeric as part of our diet. Research shows that turmeric contains good anti-cancer properties. Also soursop leaves is recommended for prostate cancer patients.

The ninety minutes discussion went by swiftly. It is intellectually stimulating to learn that when talking about cancer, the amount of research, resources and factors involved to find a cure is ample. Biologist like Dr Chandra represents a small side of the struggle to overcome CRC. Information about cancer alone is often found lacking, this is where Dr Chandra emphasize on the importance of a collaborative effort in research and hope that Indonesia will be able to keep up with the challenge.

GoLive Indonesia is deeply thankful to Dr Chandra Kirana for sharing her knowledge with us.
