Dr. Samuel PD Anantadjaya, BSc., MBA, MM, Dean of Business and Social Sciences Faculty as leader and Dr. Ir. Prianggada Indra Tanaya, MME and Timotius Agus Rachmat SST.Par.,MM as members are undertaking research funded by Dikti. To get the grant, IULI had to apply and compete with other institutions. Fortunately, Dikti accepted our proposal.-CULINARY TOUR DEVELOPMENT MODEL BETAWI BASED ON LOCAL POTENTIAL BASED ON COMMUNITY IN SUSTAINABLE BABAKAN JAKARTA.
