By Norzaini Azman and Fauziah binti Haji Abu Hasan. Driving Social Innovation in Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT)
To maximise the impacts of research, universities must develop institutional capacity to support the transfer of knowledge to individuals and organisations outside of the academy. This transfer of knowledge is seen in a wider context at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT). It involves the process of transferring knowledge from research and scholarly work to relevant stakeholders. Specifically the transfer of knowledge in UMT is defined from the perspective of how knowledge is translated into “innovative products, processes and tools” and how they are made useful for the society. These “innovative products, processes and tools” can further be differentiated into three different forms: knowledge innovation; technological innovation and Social Innovation.
