CREST R&D Grant Cycle 2/2013

We have just received this email from CREST. It has been received slightly late, so some of the dates are no longer relevant but the deadline is far enough away that you can still talk to CREST if you have an idea for a project.

You might also want to look at the CREST R&D Grant Preview, which gives an overview of the programme. We also have a budget spreadsheet and an application form. We cannot upload this, as the blog does not allow Word/Excel files to be uploaded. If you need these files, please email me and I’ll send them to you.


CREST is pleased to announce the opening of application for CREST R&D Grant Cycle 2/2013 to researchers from the institutions of higher learning and the industries. CREST R&D Grant is not limited to E&E discipline but should support E&E industry sector.

Prospective applicants together with partners are invited to attend any of CREST R&D Grant Briefing sessions at the following locations. Admission is free. Please RSVP to reserve your seat via email to rndgrant@crest.my by 15th June 2013.
