RDC Stakeholder Engagement: Update
Over the past few months a team from a number of public and private universities have been engaged in collecting data from around the world (including Australia, UK, Korea and Taiwan) in order to form a policy document for the government which could change the way that Malaysia undertakes Research, Development and Commercilisation (RDC). The project has been led by Angelina Yee, and her team, from UNMC.
Now that the data has been collected, we have started to feed back to key stakeholders, in order to get their views so that the policy document can be better informed.
This week saw three such meetings, including feeding back to the university sector, polytechnics and community colleages and key goverment officials from the Ministry of Education (MoE).
We also took the opportunity to let the participants hear from our UK colleagues (Dr Susan Huxtable and David Crowley) who were at UNMC for another event.
The presentations took place at MoE, as well as the Mines Resort. The pictures below show Angelina and Susan Huxtable in full flow at the Mines Resort on Friday afternoon (13th Sep).
There is still a lot of work to do, in framing the final document, but this week has been a critical part of the process.
