In higher education there is a necessity to do research for the development of science and technology for the welfare of Indonesia and the world.

The imperative of universities to undertake research and innovation is increasingly important in the disruptive social situation of the present era, especially with the encouragement of the Industrial Revolution 4.0. In his book The Fourth Industrial Revolution, Klaus Schwab explains the flow of revolution that incorporates physical, digital and biological technologies that affect all disciplines. Internet of things, genetic editing, artificial intelligent, big data mining, car swakendara, supercomputers, are forms of technology that revolutionize the way we live our lives.

This revolution, on the one hand, has changed the old traits and ways in many aspects of life, among them in the field of work and or profession that will be entered by graduates from college. On the other hand, this revolution is a challenge that must be answered by higher education. Implementation of learning, including research done by college students must be able to answer this disruptive condition. If not, then our higher education process can not touch the real social reality.

Universities should be sensitive to the challenges faced by the community, because with the sensitiveness that colleges can quickly provide recommendations and solutions to answer all the problems. (HR)
