“This year, ITTP-COVID-19 is expanding partnerships with Southeast Asian countries. This meeting is an initial meeting with representatives of each faculty at UI before meeting with the Steering Committee (SC) from other countries on June 7,” said dr. Agustin Kusumayati, M.Sc., Ph.D as Chair of Conference of the 2nd ITTP-COVID-19 while opening the UI Internal Steering Committee meeting agenda on Friday, June 3rd, 2022.
Prior to today’s meeting, the ASEAN’s University Leaders Meeting was held on April 28th, 2022, which produced commitments from several ASEAN universities to be the Steering Committee.
Together with dr. Agustin, the Organizing Committee Chair, Popy Yuniar, S.K.M., M.M., Ph.D Cand., the ITTP committee and the representatives of faculties at UI were also present. The representatives were Turro Selrits Wongkaren, S.E., M.A., Ph.D., from the Faculty of Economics and Business; Adila Alfa Krisnadhi, S.Kom., M.Sc., Ph.D., from the Faculty of Computer Science; Dr. Herdito Sandi Pratama, M. Hum., from the Faculty of Humanities; and Nurul Dina Rahmawati, S.Gz., M.Sc., from the Faculty of Public Health who is also the Organizing Committee Deputy Chair.
The International Teleconference on Technology and Policy in Supporting Implementation of the COVID-19 Recovery Plan in Southeast Asia (ITTP-COVID-19) is a series of virtual events consisting of four activities that are making policy recommendations, pre-conference, conference, exchange and culture, and networking. This year, ITTP-COVID-9 enters the 2nd year with UI as the main promoter and FKM UI as the organizer. The theme raised is Post COVID-19 Pandemic: Healthier, Smarter, and Resilient ASEAN Community.
To date, the committee has received a number of abstracts from potential participants and opens for abstract submissions until June 12th, 2022. The abstracts accepted are grouped into three clusters, namely Health Sciences, Engineering and Natural Sciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences.
Aside from being a forum for synchronizing perceptions, the SC internal meeting also produced constructive input and suggestions for the implementation of the 2nd ITTP-COVID-19. The quite varied background of participants serves more diverse points of view. Hopefully the meeting would be a good start for the SC of the 2nd ITTP-COVID-19 team and make the event better. (BK)
