2014: The Challenge
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Reduced RUG allocation
Where does the budget gone to?
Likely to MOE External grants: ERGS, PRGS, KTP, …
Requirement for External Grant: must involve external
stakeholders
Eg. Science Fund (MOSTI): must involve RIs
Eg. KTP-Industry: must involve SMEs/industry
Eg. KTP-Community: must involve community/Gov
Agency/NGOs
Many International Grants also engage SMEs, industry..
Engaging External Stakeholders
• Relevance
• Contribution to Nation economy generation
• Impact to society
TPU KFA-Securing International Grant :
The Issue at Hand:
Small International Grant
(RM300-400K+ per annum 2008-2011)
Lack of networking with Donors
Lack of sharing platform in UTM to put forward Winning
Proposal IN TIME
- Delayed Information for Proposal Calls
- Mismatch of Research focus (not follow specific
thematic areas)
- Lack of contact to National Contact Points
- Lack of Know-How & Awareness
- Deter by Tedious Application & Low rate of success

ON RECYCLING OF RAW MATERIALS FROM PRODUCTS AND BUILDINGS
OR (NMP-18-2014) ON MATERIALS SOLUTIONS FOR USE IN THE CREATIVE
INDUSTRY SECTORMihalis Iraklis PanagiotidisProfessor of Nutrition & Toxicology and Department Head of
Human Health, Heriot Watt University, School of Life SciencesTop ContributorWe are a multidisciplinary team of
academics based at Heriot Watt University aiming to develop a proposal in the area of “Sustainable eco-innovation
towards zero waste economy in the built environment”. In general, the construction and demolition (C&D) sector is the
largest contributor of waste globally and, in the UK alone, as it is responsible for generating 120 million tonnes of waste
every year. In addition, given the global resource constraints, recovery and re-use of raw C&D waste materials (minerals,
metals and organic materials) are increasingly emerging as factors of utmost importance in providing the best overall
environmental, economic and societal outcomes. The vision of this project will be to foster economically and
environmentally sustainable solutions for the re-use of raw materials in the built environment. The strategies we will
bring to fore underpin cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness by minimising the need for bulk waste/material shipment
and promoting near-zero waste in the C&D sector. This is achieved by delivering eco-innovation for the on-site closedloop re-processing of C&D waste into new building materials. For these reasons, a range of R&D and international cooperation activities pertaining to the theme of re-using mineral resources from C&D waste in the built environment will
be planned and structured around a case study involving earth construction. Thus, we would like to bring together a
cross-disciplinary consortium that will address the proposed eco-technology in its entirety, including: (1) resolving
engineering challenges, (2) ensuring public and on-site health and safety issues, (3) investigating societal, psychological
and marketing aspects and (4) delivering viable construction management, business and regulatory models. Ultimately,
our proposal will aim to (i) assimilate best practices and disseminate latest advances in C&D waste re-use to academic
industrial and governmental/regulatory bodies, (ii) act as a point of reference in promoting the establishment of
standards and legislation for the re-use of recycled C&D waste into new building materials and processes and (iii)
establish an international pool of cross-trained pioneers with the necessary interdisciplinary expertise and global
perspective required to lead the adoption of sustainable eco-innovation in the built environment globally. If such
opportunity is of interest to you, I would greatly appreciate letting me know as to how would your group and/or
Company be able to contributing in this project. You can contact me directly at [email protected]
