On Friday, November 7, 2014, polytechnic NSC Surabaya had an internal research grant socialization agenda for the permanent lectures. In improving the quality and quantity of research, Fajar Enesce Education Foundation provided grants to permanent lectures of Polytechnic NSC Surabaya to submit research proposals which are worth and qualified, the research proposals would be selected, for those who passed the selection would get research grants from the foundation. The number of research funded by the foundation was eight proposals. In this case the competition in getting the grant would foster willingness of the permanent lectures to investigate.
Research is one component of the Tri Dharma College, each lecturer in all colleges, including the Polytechnic NSC Surabaya required to conduct research activities. There are about 20 potential lecturers at Polytechnic NSC Surabaya who must carry out research activities to implement the Tri Dharma College. To accommodate this potential, the Center for Research and Community Service Polytechnic NSC Surabaya (P3M) organizes and distributes research activities both in the scope of the internal research (funded by Polytechnic NSC Surabaya) as well as external research (funded by outside of Polytechnic NSC Surabaya).
Internal research at Polytechnic NSC Surabaya has been going on since 2010 with programs and funding that are continuously adapted to the development of the needs and the quality of research. On the other hand, to obtain research funds from the institution or institutions outside of Polytechnic NSC Surabaya as DP2M-Higher Education and others is very tight in competition. Therefore, the management of research programs should be improved, so that the preparations done by the lectures as researchers from the preparation of proposals, seminars of proposals to the preparation of research reports can be better. If the quality of research proposals is better, the opportunity to obtain external research funding is also higher.
Beginning in 2011 Dirlitabmas General of Higher Education as one of the funders of research issued the policy of the importance of Umbrella Research, and every Universities needed to prepare the Master Plan study. Therefore, P3M - Polytechnic NSC Surabaya also needed to make adjustments to the published handbook of research which was more accommodating. This research guide was part of the P3M - Polytechnic NSC Surabaya’s intention to always follow the latest developments in the field of research, so that every lecture can always interact and carry out the research with the reference to real-world conditions of today's research.
