SGLC-ERIC is a “melting pot”, an ecosystem with seamless collaboration mechanism for R&D processes aiming at innovative products or solutions that bring added values for their users. Therefore, we implement our spirit and strive to achieve our goals by holding several activities :
SGLC-ERIC Inaguration & Buildings Groundbreaking
There is no formal inauguration due to pandemic. However, some activities are held, one of them is groundbreaking of SGLC-ERIC Buildings that have been held on December 1st, 2020 attended by chancellor of UGM, vice dean of FoE UGM, and faculty staff representatives. This building construction carried out to support students’ learning process without boundaries in the future :
Documentations of groundbreaking event
SGLC-ERIC buildings have deep philosophy. In this building, there are four pillars that represent four pillars of synergy: academic-business-government-community. Every pillar is a source of learning materials. Learning is done by exposing “the pillars” to the students, and let the students interact with them (observing, studying, analyzing, experimenting, and synthesizing solutions for them). Design of the SGRC and ERIC buildings can be seen in this link.
