A team from Hasanuddin University achieved a prestigious accomplishment at the international level. The UNHAS team participated in the Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF) 2022 by the Korea Invention Promotion Association (KIPA) which was held in Seoul, South Korea from Friday (11/16) to Monday (11/19). The world’s largest annual invention exhibited approximately 645 innovative works from 27 countries.
The UNHAS team, which consisted of students from various faculties, namely Mayang Azkiah (Faculty of Engineering), Putri Ardinasrayanti Asri (Faculty of Pharmacy), and Abd Salam Saputra (Faculty of Social and Political Sciences), won the Gold Prize award and placed 1st for the Best Invention by the First Institute of Researchers and Inventors of Iran (FIRI) Award. The UNHAS team presented an innovative application called “We-Collabs: Development of Application Non-Governmental Organization to Realize Sustainable Development Goals Program with Collaborative and Integration System” in front of the international innovators and the jury.
We-Collabs is a mobile application aiming to connect youth and organizations. The main focus of We-Collabs is collaboration among organizations engaged in sustainable development goals (SDGs). Through this application, organizations can connect with each other to establish collaborations. The main focus of this application is data that shows that Indonesia has very many organizations, platforms, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The UNHAS team keeps collecting and updating a database of organizations and event information on the mobile app. In the future, they hope that the application they developed can be commercialized in the app store for both Android and iOS.
