Integrating Technopreneurship into an Outreach Education Program: The experience of Bogor Agricultural
University (IPB)

Aji Hermawan & Herlina Lien, Bogor Agricultural University (Indonesia)

Decentralization of higher education plays a very important role in community development, to maximize local resources. Building local technopreneurship enables communities to develop self-reliance. The main challenge from the university perspective is moving from a mission to produce “graduates with levels of excellence in their areas of expertise” to “training future professionals with strong commitment to development of their community.” This session will document and analyze these changes, examine IPB outreach activities in relation to technopreneurship building, and identify ways of further strengthening IPB’s contribution to community development. One strategy is to form an entrepreneurship club.
