Innovation Vouchers

We recently received this email:

Greetings from AIM.

 I would like to introduce to you RAP INNOVATION VOUCHER, which is a collaboration programme between AIM and MDeC to increase collaboration between institutions of higher learning and research institutions with Malaysian companies. It aims to provide industry exposure to researchers, which will help to facilitate open collaboration between industries with universities and research institutions. In this program for university/research institute , incentive worth of RM 5,000 will be paid by company to the researcher through Business Development Unit (BU) after the completion of first milestone. Upon the completion of second (final) milestone, incentive worth of RM 10,000 will be awarded to the researcher by AIM. These R&D activities would then facilitate the transfer of know-how from the collaborators to the Malaysian companies and vice versa. In turn, this will lead to the production of innovative prototypes, quality products and potential Intellectual Property (IP) creation.

 The write up of RAP programme and application form are as attached. Kindly extent this information to companies/ researcher

Good luck
