Five researchers from Azman Hashim International Business School (AHIBS) successfully awarded the Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) amounting over RM300,000 by the Ministry of Higher Education to conduct research on various business areas.
FRGS is a competitive fund with specific expectations and deliverables to be fulfilled. Projects are usually awarded based on their relevance to the national agenda and incorporation of quadruple helix elements. Other than successful research completion, the desired outputs include high index publications, postgraduate students, and patent/copyright.
From the five projects, AHIBS will address several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and connect the School to various industrial, governmental and non-governmental bodies. Each project also involves researchers from other universities and partners hence, promoting wider networking and collaboration for expertise sharing.
