Kenyir Research Institute: The Way Forward

Universiti Malaysia Terengganu is endeavouring to complement its multi-disciplinary and social innovation oriented research capability. Towards that end, the Kenyir Research Institute led at that time by Emeritus Professor Dr. Faizah binti Mohd Sharoum was established at the end of 2013. The excellence was continued under the leadership of Professor Dato’ Dr. Mohd Tajuddin bin Abdullah starting from 1 October 2016. It is the aspiration of Universiti Malaysia Terengganu to fulfill the commitment of the state government to make Kenyir the top “nature tourism destination” in the region as a model of a rural development area from the perspective of environmental sustainability and social well-being.
