BANDUNG, - In one of the finishing events of the long chain of preparation trainings for the Students Creativity Week (Pekan Kreativitas Mahasiswa/PKM) 2011, Bandung Institute of Technology together with the Family of Islamic Students (Keluarga Mahasiswa Islam/GAMAIS) conducted the PKM Seminar. The seminar, like other forms of training that preceded it, is the campus' effort in order to prepare the delegates that would be sent to compete in PKM 2011.
In an elaboration delivered by Dr. Ciptati, a key speaker in the seminar, innovation and collaboration are the two key elements in creating a good research and project proposal in order to compete. "Find new topics and work together with other study majors," she stressed. She also explained the importance of an accurate financial planning for the proposal.

According to the Monash University graduate, ITB is always close to becoming the grand winner of the event. "The variety of research and project topics are already enormous in the previous years. With just several simple touches, we're set to dominate," she claimed.
