Driving VCSP: Top Notch Strategic Alliances

The Vice Chancellor Special Project (VCSP) team entrusted with forging Strategic Alliances with Top Notch Research Centres met up today to discuss 2011 research collaboration projects. At least four research projects will be pursued for 2011: (i) The Institute of Business Excellence IBE will have three projects will the Halal research Institute of the Chullalongkorn University, Thailand; (ii) The Institute of Science IOS will proceed to collaborate with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization (ANSTO), (iii) Research Institute in Natural Products RIND will partner with the ICCBS, University of Karachi, iv) Non-Destructive Biomedical & Pharmaceutical Research Centre NDBPRC will formalize research collaboration with Perugia University, Italy. Each strategic alliance project will be given a stipend of RM25,000 and the team is expected to formalize the collaboration and to produce at least one "early-win" deliverable within the next six month. Two strategic alliance VCSP projects were successfully embarked in 2010 by the Accounting Research Institute ARI. The first collaborative research project on Target Costing Implementation is with the Management Accounting Centre of the National Taiwan University. The second project on The Governance of Non-Profit Organizations is with the International Center for Political Violence & Terrorism Research, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. 2011 will hopefully be another great year for the CoEs....
