CREST’s Contextual Research Culture Drives Impactful Solutions

“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.”

Professor Dr. Zaidi Mohd Ripin

Professor, School of Mechanical Engineering and Head of TheVibrationLab, Universiti Sains Malaysia

“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.”

T.K. Tan

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.”

Goon Koon Yin

Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director of TT Vision Holdings Berhad

“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.”

Dr. David Lacey

Director of Advanced Development & Services, R&D, of ams OSRAM Group

“We were a CREST incubatee. We started in the rented CREST collaboration area. Over the years, we received great collaborative support and mentorship from CREST. I truly appreciate and recognise CREST’s efforts, especially in the Penang semiconductor industry.”
