One of the goals of a vocational program is to prepare human resources who have expertise and skills in their fields and are ready to compete in the workplace globally. However, the number of higher education institutions that provide vocational education in Indonesia is still limited, compared with the number of universities that provide “academic” education, and industrial needs. Additionally, the development of applied research is not quite optimal, which has an effect on the number of applied research works being produced.
Therefore, Faculty of Vocational Studies, Universitas Airlangga, Indonesia holds an annual international conference on vocational innovation and applied sciences (ICVIAS). It aims to provide a scientific forum for academicians, researchers, professionals, practitioners, and postgraduate students to share, discuss and disseminate ideas and innovations in applied sciences, especially in the fields of business, health and information technology. This year, 2022, ICVIAS comes to its 4th edition, bringing a big theme “Enhancing Vocational Education and Research through Collaborative Work of Health, Engineering, and Business Fields”. The reason for selecting this theme is that in 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic has exerted adverse impact on various fields and sectors, including health, engineering, and business.
