As one of the research university, University of Malaya (UM) has initiated efforts to enhance research activities within the university. Such efforts are imperative in order to ensure that UM is able to cutting edge research and also to place itself amongst one of the best universities in the world in the near future.
Among the steps identified is to select and recruit outstanding researchers from within UM and other local and foreign institutions to pursue study at PhD level and to contribute in producing high impact journal of ISI Web of Science (WoS) publications.
To ensure that this initiative is implemented effectively and efficiently, the Bright Sparks Program (BSP), under the auspices of the Bright Sparks Unit (BSU), has been established on September 9, 2009.
