Minister for research, technology and higher education Mohamad Nasir opened on February 21 the launching of the 24th commemoration of the national technology awakening day (Hakteknas) in Puputan Margarana field, Denpasar Bali. The event was attended by around 50,000 students from Balinese higher education bodies. Bali governor I Wayan Koster also joined Nasir in opening the event.
“Mr President has said that local innovation must be boosted, therefore we decided to hold a Hakteknas commemoration outside Jakarta,” said Nasir.
The theme of the event is “science and technology in the 4.0 creative economy.” The sub-theme, meanwhile, is “4.0 creative industry for the autonomy and competitiveness of the nation” and the tagline is “Innovation, Build the Nation.”
The Hakteknas commemoration itself will be held on August 8, different from in the previous years when the event was held on every August 10. The decision was made because the Idul Adha holy day will fall on August 11 this year.
