Bridging Cassava to the Community: Simple Practices of Connecting Research-Industry-Community in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB)

Research activities to generate superior cassava varieties as well as to develop in vitro cassava seedling production system are continuously performed in Bogor Agricultural University (IPB). Designing research based on the industry- and community-demand is as important as delivering the research results to its users. Starting in 2016, the cassava research team in IPB implement simple practices to gain insights of market demand on cassava products and to deliver research results to the market. 

Through a Technology Based Pre-Enterprise Program, IPB introduce a one stop shopping concept for cassava based products and technologies to the industry and community with the brand name of Catalyst – Cassava Life Style. This concept offers training packages for in vitro cassava seedling production system, good agricultural practices on cassava cultivation, modified cassava flour (mocaf) production, and mocaf-based cookies and cakes making. Catalyst also introduced cassava-based products such as mocaf and mocaf-based cookies and cakes to the industry and community through various events. Consumer preference on the products were collected to further improve the products through research activities. In 2017, Catalyst participated in two big innovation expos, namely IPB Innovation and Entrepreneurship Expo (IIEE) at 8-10 September 2017 in Bogor West Java and Indonesian Innovator and Innovation Expo (i3E) at 19-22 October 2017 in Surabaya East Java attended by more than 2500 visitors. Participation of Catalyst in those events is just a simple beginning of bridging cassava research with the industry and the community.
