Research Fund

Cetak PDF

The University has identified four categories of research grants, namely internal, external, industry and international grants. Internal or short term research grants are to build capacity in research for new and young researchers. The specific objectives are to:  

            • provide seed funding before bigger research projects can be implemented
          • promote post graduate and national human resource development 

External grants are research grants funded by the government of Malaysia, for example the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and Ministry of Science Technology and Innovation (MOSTI). The grants for higher education focus on the fundamental research mainly for the development of new and emerging knowledge and technology. Furthermore, the grants from MOSTI encourage research on applied sciences which aim to produce prototype and marketable products.Industry Grants are grants offered by the public and industrial sectors. The grants are offered via SMART Partnership, and the research progress is closely monitored. As for the International Grants, they are offered by international bodies or institutions.

The number of research grants received by the University has increased substantially. The increase is due to the continuous development in the Research & Innovation work and output, as well as strategic networking with collaborative partnerships. University is playing a key role in economic regeneration and contributing to both economic and social prosperity. Commitment to research and teaching are central to all University activities.
