Fostering Innovation and Sustainability: A Collaborative Journey at UTAR

Last Friday, I engaged in dynamic discussions at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). We explored open innovation, nurturing young talents, and the shift towards sustainable development. UTAR’s partnerships with China and Europe signal a new era of collaboration. As an advocate for education and impact, I’m excited to contribute to Malaysia’s innovation ecosystem! 

Last Friday, I was invited at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) 🇲🇾 by Andrew Chong, Advisor at the Centre for Railway Infrastructure and Engineering (CRIE) in order to meet the Chairperson, Dr Kein Huat Chua, along with Dr Ong Chuan Fang (civil engineering). and the Phd student, Dickson Hoo.

It was a great opportunity to exchange on relevant topics such as open #innovation, attracting and nurturing young #talents but also the shift towards sustainable development (#SDGs). A new era is coming along with new collaboration !

After several partnerships with #China 🇨🇳, #UTAR is now engaged with #Europe 🇪🇺. In the morning, a delegation from EUROCHAM Malaysia visited his President, Professor Dato’ Dr Ewe Hong Tat. One of its 🇪🇺 members, REHAU 🇩🇪, is actually committed to working in close collaboration with #UTAR

I met several universities during my stay in #Malaysia 🇲🇾 ; a few potential projects are already in the pipes. I fully believe in #education, #innovation and #impact. I would be glad to contribute to fostering the 🇲🇾 innovation ecosystem ! 🍀
