I’MRC helps you to connect with other researchers

Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh and Salam sejahtera,

Following the successful Indonesia-Malaysia Research Consortium (I’MRC) forum was held by UTM on 18 May 2016 at UTM Kuala Lumpur Campus, I’MRC is now open for registration.

I would like to invite lecturers and researchers from Indonesia-Malaysia higher education and research institutions to participate in I’M Research Consortium. I’M Research Consortium (Indonesia-Malaysia Research Consortium) is the Indonesia-Malaysia network of research-intensive universities and institution, working together to foster institutional innovation through research-inspired teaching and learning, student mobility, connecting our students and staff, and wider advocacy for internationalisation.

The purpose of this website is to provide the collaboration and sharing tools needed to get I’MRC members working together. Instantly bring any member group and empower everyone to maximize their return on involvement in research and education.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the I’M Research Consortium. Together we will build tomorrow’s traditions in scientific research and education.

Successful Indonesia-Malaysia Research Consortium Forum and RAFSS 2016

The I’MRC is the Indonesia-Malaysia network of research-intensive universities and institution, working together to foster institutional innovation through research-inspired teaching and learning, student mobility, connecting our students and staff, and wider advocacy for internationalisation. The forum was chaired by the Secretary General Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia, Y. Bhg. Dato’ Seri Ir. Dr. Zaini Ujang. It was attended by more than 70 delegates from more than 30 Malaysia and Indonesia institutions of higher learning, including Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Universiti Malaya, Unversiti Putra Malaysia, Universitas Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Institut Pertanian Bogor, Badan Pengkajian dan Penerapan Teknologi and Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember. The former Minister of National Education, Indonesia – Prof. Dr. Ir. Mohammad Nuh also joined the forum.

Followed by I’M RC Forum, a research engagement workshop was held in the afternoon. The workshop was chaired by Deputy Vice Chancellor-Research and Innovation of UTM, Prof. Dr. Ahmad Fauzi Ismail. Issues of research collaborations and joint supervision among the Indonesia and Malaysia Intitutions of Higher Learning were discussed.

On 19-20 May 2016, Regional Annual Fundamental Science Symposium 2016 was also organised by my research centre. RAFSS 2016 is the thirteen in a series of interdisciplinary symposia that is organized by the Centre of Sustainable Nanomaterials (CSNano), Ibnu Sina Institute for Scientific and Industrial Research, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. RAFSS 2016 is devoted to all aspects of fundamental science research in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology.
