2 RI students win science awards in France
[The Jakarta Post]: Two Indonesian doctoral students at French universities have won this year’s Mahar Schutzenberger Awards from the AFIDES Foundation. The award is granted to research that makes major contributions to science and technology. The students are Kadarusman, who is currently studying at Paul Sabatier University in Toulouse, and Hananto Prakoso, who is studying at Paris Est-Creteil University in Paris. “Their research is of a high quality and is innovative, offering clear solutions to Indonesia’s current biodiversity, transportation and economic problems,” AFIDES president Helen Schutzenberger said Thursday as quoted by kompas.com. Kadarusman’s research is focussed on the Rainbow fish species that inhabits the Papua bird’s head area, while Hananto presented his analysis of the relationship between the labor market and the need to build better infrastructure.
