ABOUT THE FUND
The MRC Industry Linkage Fund is a funding programme for the Malaysian rubber products industry to collaborate with universities and research institutions on research projects which have the potential to increase Malaysia's exports of rubber products and enhance the industry's competitiveness in the global market place.
The MRC Industry Linkage Fund provides a platform for the industry to leverage on the strengths and expertise of public and private universities in Malaysia, as well as Malaysian research institutes to undertake market-driven research which will benefit the industry in terms of innovation as well as research and development (R&D).
