Five PKM-RE Teams from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Jember Passed PKM Funding in 2024

Five Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa (PKM) Teams from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Jember University will receive funding in 2024. The teams from the Department of Chemistry and Biology took part in the PKM Research and Exacts (PKM-RE) field. The five are entitled to receive funding of between 7-9 juta rupiah and must produce output in the form of progress reports, final reports, scientific articles, and social media accounts. “They will prepare progress reports up to the final report for later assessment and announcement of the 2024 PKM Award winners next August,” said Dr. M. Reza, a lecturer in the Chemistry Department who is also one of the supervisors of the PKM FMIPA UNEJ team.

It is hoped that the efforts of the PKM FMIPA UNEJ team will produce the best results so that they can qualify for the 37th Pekan Ilmiah Mahasiswa Nasional (PIMNAS), which will be held on October 16-22, 2024, at Airlangga University, Surabaya. This hope is very big because PKM supports the achievement of Main Performance Indicators (IK) for higher education institutions, and for students, it can be converted into credits and/or SKPI recognition. This conversion has been regulated, and universities have the freedom to determine the number of credit conversions and courses according to the PKM field being followed. Continue reading
