The University of Indonesia continues to explore the potential for collaboration with various partners worldwide, focusing on education, research, and innovation. Now, UI is ready to synergize with PT DMG Investment Trading through Osmunda Group and Sichuan Technology Co., Ltd., both industries engaged in the research and production of medical devices.

Osmunda Medical Device Service Group is a company that provides global third-party services to the medical device industry, including the Contract Development Manufacturing Organization (CDMO), Clinical Research Organization (CRO), and Civil Society Organization (CSO). Meanwhile, Sichuan Technology Co., Ltd. only focuses on In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) medical devices.

In a meeting at the Administration Center Building UI, the Secretary, dr. Agustin Kusumayati, M.Sc., Ph.D., said this collaboration would open new opportunities for both parties. “I am very pleased we can continue the collaboration. This meeting is important to plan potential collaboration in specific fields in more detail. We hope this meeting will open new opportunities that align with law and ethics and provide real benefits for both parties,” said Dr. Agustin on Thursday (01/02).

Meanwhile, the Manager Director of Guangzhou Osmunda Group, Wu Hongtao, stated that this meeting aimed to support innovation and establish a joint research institute with UI. Details of this collaboration include the establishment of an IVD research institute with UI, development of domestic research and scientific topics, and support of the achievement of local industrialization.
