On Thursday 17th of August, almost all institutions and government offices celebrate the 72nd Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) including Dian Nuswantoro University (Udinus) Semarang. Udinus held a flag ceremony at the yard in front of the G building. The ceremony was attended by hundreds of participants from Udinus, Central Semarang Police, Central Semarang Sub district, and urban village of all sub district of Central Semarang.
Udinus Rector, Prof. Dr. Ir. Edi Noersasongko M. Kom as the inspector of the ceremony recalled his visitation to the Netherlands several years ago. He admired the use of the technology in that country which known as the country of windmills. "Indonesia can be colonized by the Dutch for up to 350 years because they have been using technology for centuries," Edi said. The method of building the embankment in the Netherlands had been growing since centuries ago because one of three of the territory in Netherlands is sea. That condition was contradicted with Indonesia’s condition at that time. "Indonesia need to learn more to catch up," added Edi as a Professor of Technopreneur Management.
