Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Equitable Society Research Cluster
Since its establishment, our cluster plays an important role in supporting research that tackles inequality as the subject. In accordance with our aim which to focus on recognize and promote a common commitment towards equal opportunity and fairness among the citizens of the country, cluster will keep on continue to lead and provide a platform to encourage researchers in University of Malaya to promote equality.
ESRC promote the researchers from different disciplines to interact among themselves and work together as an effort to provide innovative and practical solutions towards achieving a more equitable society in Malaysia. Thus, we work very closely with researchers from different faculties. Moreover, ESRC together with other Research Clusters, provide assistance to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) in strategic planning.
We are currently funding 2 types of grant; Grand Challenge and University of Malaya Research Grant (UMRG) Programme.
A part from that, cluster also needs to be more proactive and creative to continue supporting the researchers. Therefore, we are also promoting international research grant funding. This approach is hoping to also expand international collaboration among the researcher.
We invite you to learn more about our research through this site.
