The Sarawak RDC will fund research in science and technology. It will do this through grants, and cooperative agreements with state research institutions, universities, businesses and other research organisations throughout Sarawak.
The Sarawak Research and Development Council (Sarawak RDC) research funds are grants provided by the Government of Sarawak through the Council to carry out Research and Development (R&D) projects that can contribute to the discovery of new ideas and the advancement of knowledge in applied sciences and technology, focusing on high impact and innovative research with potential prospect of commercialization.
The Sarawak Research and Development Council (Sarawak RDC) research funds will cover disciplines in science and technology (excluding digital technology). The Council does not support social sciences, economics, and the arts and humanities, but these may be incorporated into submissions as collaboration and synergistic research activities.
