Institute for Research and Community Services or Lembaga Penelitian dan Pengabdian kepada Masyarakat (LPPM) of Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB) that was established at the end of 2001 is a merger of ITB Research Institute established in 1959 with ITB Community Service Institute. This institution is a forum for academics to conduct research and community service. LPPM is under the coordination of the Vice Rector for Research and Innovation or Wakil Rektor Bidang Riset dan Inovasi (WRRI) starting from 2020. The establishment of LPPM is ITB’s strategy in an effort to realize the quality improvement and development of science, technology, arts, social and humanities, and business in universities, and their implementation in the community, and at the same time to accommodate the implementation of the Tri Dharma duties including education, research, and community service in harmony.
LPPM as a supporting work unit at ITB carries out the duty as a door to institutionally facilitate and coordinate research collaboration activities and community service in an effort to increase reciprocal synergies between the competencies of ITB academics and the community. LPPM-ITB cooperation in the field of research and community service in the form of training, mentoring, and consultation has been well established with various partners, including research institutions, government, industry, private sector, BUMN, and other relevant institutions from within the country and abroad. The existence of this collaboration is a manifestation of the high trust of the community as partners in the ability of LPPM-ITB.
