The Head of KUI, Ayu Anastasya Rachman S.IP, MA explained, on this occasion, Prof. In'am shared various strategies to be able to start a lecturer mobility program, without having to be burdened with high operational costs.
“That is by creating a sharing-fund scheme (or joint funding), participating in competitive grants from foundations, and participating in a visiting professor program funded by the government.

This activity can add insight and inspiration so that in the future UBM can produce various Professors (GB)," hoped Ayu, who is currently completing her Doctoral studies at Padjadjaran University, Bandung.
