Event Details

PLEASE NOTE: This webinar will take place from 9am to 10.30am UK time, which is 4pm to 5.30pm Malaysian time.

The UK and Malaysian governments have established the Newton-Unkgu Omar Fund to support Malaysia’s urbanisation agenda, which will promote economic growth, equity and environmental sustainability hand-in-hand. The Fund is enabling research and innovation partnerships between the UK and Malaysia to strengthen; excellent joint research to emerge; and new commercial solutions to the challenges of urbanisation to be developed.

For more background to the Newton Fund, please see:  

Innovate UK - in conjunction with the Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT) - launched a £14.4m Malaysia-UK Research and Innovation Bridges Competition offering collaborative R&D funding in June 2015. This competition seeks to support the translation of excellent research into commercial solutions (new products, services or business processes) to meet the most critical challenges faced by Malaysia on its urbanisation journey. The competition will be open to collaborations of UK and Malaysian parties working together to identify these new solutions. For more details on the competition, please go to:
