Historical Development

The academic quality of a higher education institution could not be separated from the successful of the three roles of higher education (otherwise it called as Tri Dharma of Higher Education), which are teaching, research and community service. Universities are required to continuously develop three advantages, namely excellence in teaching, research and dedication to community service. Organizing research activities becomes an obligation of each higher education institution as stated in Article 20 of Law No 20 of 2003 on National Education System, which explicitly states that higher education institutions are obliged to conduct research. To be able to conduct such research obligations, higher education institutions are required to have competent lecturers in making research proposals, conduct research, disseminate research results and ultimately produce result in various forms of intellectual property. It is a commitment of BINUS University to organize research activity and it is reflected explicitly in one of the purposes of the UBINUS Statute.

Research and scientific publications conducted by BINUS University faculty members are originally organized by Research and Technology Transfer Office, which main tasks are to aid faculty members in creation of research proposal and its implementation, both with external fund and internal fund. The main focus of the Research and Technology Transfer are to develop and facilitate research activities and research related activities such as dissemination of research through journal publishing and intellectual property.


Research conducted by BINUS University as an embodiment of one of three roles of Higher Education with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of teaching and learning process as well as contributing to the body of knowledge and producing the products of intellectual property which is funded from both internal and external research grants. BINUS University Competitive Research Grants is an internal research grant given every year with a maximum research period of one year. RTTO also aid researchers who wish to participate in research activities funded by external parties such as DIKTI and other external parties.

To attract research activities to the national and international level (high impact research), Research and Technology Transfer has established several Research Interest Groups (RIG), and will continue to increase the number from year to year. Some of the already established RIGs are :

Bioinformatics & Data Science Research Center

In addition to Research Interest Group, BINUS University also created another Research Center, namely Bioinformatics & Data Science Research Center which the research area and research project as follows:

No. Area
1. Bioinformatics the application of information technology (IT) to the field of biological sciences

the development and advancement of databases, computational and statistical methods, algorithms, and theory to solve practical problems arising from the management and analysis of biological sciences data2. Data Sciencethe application of information technology (IT) is for extracting meaning from data and creating data products

applicability of computer algorithms is to uncover patterns from data and develop usable predictive models


RTTO coordinate, produce, and distribute of journal articles (from receiving articles either the results of a research non ? research studies, having process of selection or assessment of the article, setting articles, until the process of printing the journal). The lists of managed journals are:

  1. The Winners contains scientific articles from the fields of business economics, management and information systems
  2. LinguaCultura contains scientific articles from the fields of English. Japanese and Chinese language teaching & linguistic culture, literature
  3. CommIT contains scientific articles from the field of science of communication and information engineering.
  4. Comtech contains scientific articles from the fields of science and technology including computer science.
  5. Humaniora contains scientific articles in the field of linguistic and culture, psychology, communications and interior and visual communication design
  6. Binus Business Review contains scientific articles in the fields of management, accounting and hospitality management and its application.

The numbers of scientific publications by lecturer, both in accredited scientific journals, international scientific journals indexed in Scopus, and scientific conference papers, are moving up to reach the target of university, as strategies to World Class University. Currently, there are many scientific publications lecturers that conducted through the proceedings, while published in the journal of the National Accreditation and International journals indexed Scopus are the target of performance indicator in BINUS University.
