To reach the target of grant research quantity, various strategies should be implemented. It begins with associating the indicator of lecturer performance, study program performance, and the lecturers’ duty for research. “First, we allude to research as the indicator of lecturer performance, so that we encourage the lecturer to get the funding. Second, we connect the study program performance with the number of researchers that receive funding. Third, the lecturers’ duty as researchers can elevate their functional position. Undoubtedly, the lecturers should conduct research, and to be a good researcher, they should meet criteria to get research grants from external parties, for instance, the DRTPM,” she added.
