The Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Industry and Community Network (JINM) is an entity under Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) who is responsible for driving the university's community program based on the UPM's 3rd University Objectives to Encourage Industrial and Community Network Services.
The University Community Transformation Center (UCTC) as an entity under JINM has been entrusted to plan and implement knowledge transfer and expansion activities. To achieve that goal, UCTC plays a role to raise funds for the success of community programs through the transfer of knowledge and development.
One of the sources of funds that can be sought by academia at UPM to make the transfer and knowledge transfer activities is JINM's Knowledge Transfer Grant Scheme (KTGS JINM) where fund resources are a special provision from the Research Management Center (RMC), UPM. The distribution of these funds is the responsibility of UCTC.
The purpose of the grant scheme is to establish academics in conveying and transferring the results of their research to the target industry or community.
