This moment of success cannot be separated from the movement of the Indonesian nation which is seen as being able to maintain its political stability, develop a healthy economy, to the achievements of Indonesian children in various international competitions. Development in various sectors, competitiveness of the local economy, and innovation in science is one of the many advances in the nation that can strengthen the creativity and intellectual of the Indonesian people. However, the use of science and technology and innovation for the community, especially economic and industrial actors still needs to be improved. “In achieving this, students should understand data literacy, technology literation and human literacy. These three new literations need to be mastered by all graduates of universities in Indonesia,” he said.
