PhD Grant Available ‑Wagenigen University — Developing scenarios for sustainable land use in fish and dairy production systems in Indonesia

July 16, 2020

With­in the project Smart Indone­sian Agri­cul­ture (SMART-IN-AG) A PhD grant is avail­able for the top­ic of: “Devel­op­ing sce­nar­ios for sus­tain­able land use in fish and dairy pro­duc­tion sys­tems in Indone­sia” Back­ground The demand for ani­mal pro­tein, both fish and dairy, is increas­ing in Indone­sia. Both sec­tors are there­forelook­ing for ways to increase their pro­duc­tion, how­ev­er, there are con­straints. The avail­abil­i­ty of land and­fresh water is lim­it­ed. There­fore, in order to increase pro­duc­tion with­out fur­ther pres­sure on land and­wa­ter, cur­rent pro­duc­tion sys­tems need to become more sus­tain­able and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly interms of pro­duc­tion, envi­ron­men­tal impact and resource use effi­cien­cy. At present it is dif­fi­cult toeval­u­ate cur­rent farm­ing sys­tems since data isn’t always col­lect­ed in a lon­gi­tu­di­nal and struc­turedman­ner.Smart farm­ing in dairy and fish sys­tems allows to col­lect data in a lon­gi­tu­di­nal man­ner and to eval­u­atethe cur­rent pro­duc­tion sys­tems, par­tic­u­lar­ly on the required inputs and employed management/practicaltech­niques, and to improve the lev­el of ani­mal pro­duc­tion in Indone­sia. Using this data, risk fac­tors andman­age­ment issues that block sus­tain­able pro­duc­tion will be iden­ti­fied. The col­lect­ed infor­ma­tion will bepro­vid­ed back to farm­ers through tech­nolo­gies such as apps to aid them to improve on-farm pro­duc­tioneffi­cien­cy.

PhD Grant Available ‑Wagenigen University — Impact of SMART technologies on economic and ecological performance of fish farming system

July 16, 2020

Back­ground The envi­ron­men­tal con­di­tion of the fish farm sites are impor­tant since they are the basic val­ues for the deter­mi­na­tion of the bal­ance between fish farm­ing activ­i­ties and its recip­i­ent envi­ron­ment. Pro­duc­ing fish in a sus­tain­able way is chal­leng­ing, as low effi­cien­cies increase the envi­ron­men­tal bur­den of aqua­cul­ture as well as reduces prof­itabil­i­ty. By improv­ing both effi­cien­cy and yield the sec­tor could grow with­out increas­ing its envi­ron­men­tal impact. Today deci­sions are main­ly based on empiri­cism rather than accu­rate data. Incor­po­ra­tion of SMART tech­nolo­gies for con­trol­ling the basic para­me­ters aims to pro­vide fish farm­ers with clear­er insight in their fish pro­duc­tion for exam­ple by data on oxy­gen and tem­per­a­ture, feed demand and fish behav­iour. Sen­sors can pro­vide infor­ma­tion that facil­i­tates con­tin­u­ous pro­duc­tion and envi­ron­men­tal improve­ment. SMART fish farm­ing tech­nolo­gies have the poten­tial to improve the effi­cien­cy, reduce ener­gy use and green­house gas­es emis­sion, labour costs, and fish dis­eases, and can stim­u­late the under­stand­ing of the pro­duc­tion process as well as pro­tect­ing the envi­ron­ment. Although the intro­duc­tion of tech­nolo­gies gen­er­al­ly sup­port mod­ern­iza­tion, the devel­op­ment and use of smart tech­nol­o­gy in Indone­sian aqua­cul­ture is still under­de­vel­oped. At present, we do not have a clear view of the tech­nolo­gies imple­ment­ed, the effect on Indone­sian fish farm­ing sys­tems, and the poten­tial of new tech­nolo­gies.

The Inaugural I‑4 International Conference on Science, Technology and Humanities (I4ICSTH 2020)

December 6, 2019

The Ikatan Ilmuwan Indone­sia Inter­na­tion­al (I‑4) in the Unit­ed States and the Con­sulate Gen­er­al of the Repub­lic of Indone­sia in Hous­ton invite Indone­sian sci­en­tif­ic dias­po­ra in the U.S. and around the world, grad­u­ate stu­dents, Indone­sian sci­en­tists and pol­i­cy mak­ers, and Indone­sian­ists to par­tic­i­pate in the 1st I‑4 Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence on Sci­ence, Tech­nol­o­gy and Human­i­ties 2020 (ICSTH 2020). The con­fer­ence will be held on March 26–28, 2020 in Hous­ton, Texas, under the theme “Strength­en­ing Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy in Indone­sia: The Roles of Sci­en­tif­ic Dias­po­ra”.
