Jakarta – BRIN Public Relations. The transfer process of research, development, assessment, and application human resources of Ministries/Institutions (K/L) into employees within the National Research and Innovation Agency (BRIN) batch 2 has been carried out Wednesday (02/03). This process is a follow-up to Presidential Regulation Number 78 of 2021 concerning BRIN.

A total of 807 researchers from 15 K/Ls joined BRIN in this 2nd stage. Of these number, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) ranks the highest, with a total of 297 researchers.

Head of the KLHK’s Bureau of Personnel and Organization, Abdul Hakim, when interviewed by BRIN’s Public Relations Officer, said that the process of transferring researchers from KLHK to BRIN could only be carried out in the second stage. This is because there needs to be an adjustment between the need of HR who are now transferred to BRIN, and the need of HR related to standard activities for environmental and forestry instruments, which are the task of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry through the LHK Instrument Standardization Body (BSILHK).

“Therefore, all of the function of litbangjirap at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry must be transferred to BRIN, while the function of making standardization related to the environment and forestry is the task of BSILHK,” explained Abdul Hakim, after attending the Handover of the Decree on Transfer of K/L Employees to become BRIN Employees (Batch 2), at Le Meridien, Jakarta, Wednesday ( 02/03).

According to him, the process of integrating litbangjirap HR from a number of K/Ls to BRIN is a forward thinking for research and innovation in Indonesia. Preparation of standard instruments also certainly requires research results from BRIN.

He said, as a new agency, BSILHK needs human resources who conduct analyzes related to preparing instrument standards. Policy analysts who were previously involved in this research will still need the results of research at BRIN.

“Therefore, some of our laboratories that are still needed by BSILHK can also be used by BRIN, and vice versa. So that there will be a “common thread”, that the standardization of instruments carried out by policy analysts at BSILHK later cannot be separated from the concept or research results from BRIN,” explained Adul Hakim.

He admitted that the transfer process has gone well with intense communication between the Ministry of Environment and Forestry and BRIN. In the future, there will be another 70 research professors from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry joining BRIN. Currently, the transfer of these senior researchers is pending the administrative process through Decree of the President of the Republic of Indonesia (tnt).
