Niche areas identified
UNIVERSITI Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) has identified six niche areas to focus on.
They are self-identity, development of the environment, renewable energy, health technology and medicine, climate change as well as nano technology and material science.
Its vice-chancellor, Prof Datuk Dr Sharifah Hapsah Syed Hasan Shahabudin, says these niches will showcase the university's strengths in existing and new areas.
"The niches have been carefully chosen to ensure all staff are able to contribute as we do not want anyone to be left out.
"Even if they are not directly involved, they can contribute to the development of policies which can affect the whole community," she says in her New Year message to staff last week.
