There were also guest professors from other universities in Indonesia and Malaysia such as Universitas Malaysia Kelantan, Universitas Putra Malaysia, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Institut Pertanian Bogor, and Universitas Brawijaya.
In his official address, UNAIR Rector expected real contributions from the newly-conferred professors. “We’re waiting for their ideas to be realized and practiced. So, UNAIR can contribute to food self-sufficiency and decision making based on accurate information,” said UNAIR Rector. (*)
