Who we are

Welcome to Monash Malaysia R&D Sdn. BhD. (MMR&D)

MMR&D was established in 2016 to encourage industry in Malaysia to invest in R&D activities undertaken by researchers at Monash University Malaysia. The strategic research partnerships will enable researchers at Monash University Malaysia to work on research projects that will lead to the discovery of new solutions for industry and other external stakeholders. These new discoveries and innovations are envisaged to assist industry in Malaysia and the region to enhance their competitiveness and move up the global innovation value chain.

MMR&D is wholly owned by Monash University Malaysia. Monash University Malaysia was established in 1998 and is one of Malaysia’s most respected universities. Monash University Malaysia is Monash University’s global footprint in the Asian region, carrying with the distinction of being the Malaysian constituent of a premier research intensive Australian university, ranked among the top 100 universities in the world, and a member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight (Go8). Monash University Malaysia has grown in stature over the years, and is now recognized as a leading research intensive international educational institution in Malaysia. Monash University Malaysia obtained an Outstanding (6-Star) University in the Malaysia Rating for University and University College Excellence (SETARA) 2017.

MMR&D has access to close to 700 researchers, state-of-the-art research facilities and support services at Monash University Malaysia. Our ‘explorers’, who are pushing the boundaries of the technology and knowledge frontiers, will provide you with the best solutions to enable your organisation to achieve sustainable development and enhance their competitiveness in an increasingly knowledge-intensive and globally inter-networked world.

We invite you to be a research partner of MMR&D, strengthening university-industry collaboration, enhancing the national innovation ecosystems, and enabling Malaysia and countries in the region to “leap-frog” to a higher stage of socioeconomic development.
