Research and innovation are critical for a country's economic growth and are undoubtedly the core drivers of a university. As an institution of higher learning, UTP remains committed in its mission to generate new knowledge and create innovative products – and this achievement is a testament to this commitment.




PECIPTA has been organised by the Higher Education Ministry since 2001.   It aims to provide public and private universities to not only showcase their ideas and innovations but to compete at the national and international levels.  It also aims to enhance networking and collaboration among its participants, industry and others potential players to further explore and commercialise their products.


Universiti Malaysia Terengganu and Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin were the co-hosts of this year's event.
