“In bringing about such collaborations, CREST has created a new research culture whereby scientists must now engage with industries to solve industrial problems. I always emphasize that research must be in context. If you lose that context, research will not be as meaningful and impactful as it should be.”

“To produce a world-class dish, you need the right ingredients and a good chef. In the context of Collaborative R&D, CREST has shown us that it is possible for our local chefs to churn out world-class dishes using local materials in a local kitchen. That is a success story that more people should hear about.”
Managing Director of Clarion Malaysia Sdn. Bhd.
“CREST has been instrumental in facilitating Collaborative R&D projects and serving as a catalyst for industry-academia collaborations. Sometimes, it’s not as simple as bringing the industry and the academia together, but also serving as a bridge for funding and matching the right parties together. CREST has played its role well.”

“Everybody understands that CREST operates neutrally. It does not have a hidden agenda, and therefore, it has established itself as a go-to place for the industry. If you want to do R&D together with universities, involve CREST. Because that is the most efficient way to get it done.”
Director of Advanced Development & Services, R&D, of ams OSRAM Group
