The concept of research can be clearly defined by the element of research that it encompasses. Research, in its most basic sense, is all about exploring a subject deep enough to discover aspects that have not been examined or known before. Research, therefore, can be described as the central nervous system in which the process of securing knowledge takes place. For a university where knowledge is the very reason for its existence, research becomes an indispensable tool because it is only through it that true scholarship can be obtained. The success of UPM as a prominent research university is defined by its successive research transformations that have helped shape its academic and research excellence.

Innovation Management


In order to realise UPM’s vision to provide its research community with the best of services and enhance its reputation for quality research, a clearly laid out structure is crucial. UPM’s researches are often interdisciplinary in nature, and as such, the different research entities available at UPM are able to support each other in order to substantially strengthen its research output.
