Unimas to set up centre in Taib’s honour

KUCHING: Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) is in the process of setting up a centre  in honour of Tun Pehin Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, who led the state as chief minister for 33 years.

Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) Youth chief Datuk Fadillah Yusof, who is Works Minister, said the centre was proposed by the youth exco recently.

“We want to see that his contributions in the development of Sarawak are honoured as the result of the way he thinks and how he translated his ideas into government policy and implemented it to make Sarawak what it is today in terms of physical, human capital, infrastructure, socioeconomic and overall development when he led the state,” Fadillah said during a press conference with Unimas on Friday.

“At PBB Youth level, we see his contributions as having very big value and that is why we should have it documented, we should see how his ideas can be quantified and how they contribute to the overall development of Sarawak.”

Fadillah said there have been discussions with Unimas on the centre as the university is in Sarawak and was Taib’s brainchild.

“Initially before the discussion with Unimas, PBB Youth wanted to set up an institute – The Thinking Institute of Tun Pehin Seri Abdul Taib Mahmud – but Unimas said that there would be many obstacles such as administration, funding and human capital to manage it,” he explained.

Fadillah said Unimas suggested initially using the existing institutes at the university.

“Only when this institute is established will they propose to set up a proper institute to be called Kerusi Tun Pehin Seri Taib Mahmud or Taib Centre of Borneo Studies, which will  focus on various fields of research that involve the development of Sarawak,” he explained.

“We will bring the matter to  the Chief Minister of Sarawak Tan Sri Adenan Satem soon and for us to present the proposal to get his and the state government’s blessing and later a blessing from the Head of State.”

He said the youth wing would then look into raising an initial fund of at least RM2.5 million for the centre.

“Once established, the centre will do research on politics and development based on Taib’s  ideas and the way he thinks.

“It will be translated into the basis of policy and implementation strategy – for example to alleviate poverty in the state, so that we can be a progressive state in Malaysia through our economic income,” he said.

Meanwhile, Unimas vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi said as Sarawak’s premier university, Unimas is proud and honoured to participate in the project.

“As we all know, the  university was the brainchild  of Tun Taib. And we will  continue his legacy. The university will channel whatever resources – expertise, academicians and funds – to contribute significantly to this project to ensure success,” he  said.

Led by vice-chancellor Prof Datuk Dr Mohamad Kadim Suaidi, the delegation also met France’s Ministry of Higher Education and Research’s Scientific Cooperation Asia-Africa region director Dominique Chatton in Paris.

A press statement said the ministry through its representatives assured Unimas of all possible help to build a strong and sustainable link between the higher education institutions of Unimas and the universities visited by the delegation.

The French universities visited were Universite Cergy Pontoise, IUT Val d’Oise, Paris (well known for its expertise in Civil Engineering and Economics); Universite de Limoges, XLim and Centre Europeen de la Ceramique (Advanced Materials); as well as Universite de Nice, Sophia Antipolis.

Unimas was part of a group of 11 Malaysian universities that signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Conference des Presidents d’Universite (CPU) of France in 2008.

In the collaboration, a jointly supervised double PhD programme was started between Unimas and Universite de Limoges through a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) in July last year.

Under the MoA, a PhD candidate is to be jointly supervised by professors from Unimas and Limoges, a university well known for its hi-tech research labs in the field of ceramic materials and surface engineering.

The first PhD candidate selected under the programme has started working on the development of low temperature Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs), and the applications of the research are intended for the automobile industry where future vehicles are designed to be environmentally friendly and energy efficient.

The success of the first collaboration with Limoges prompted Unimas to spread the breadth of networking over other domains of learning.

As a leading university in the state, Unimas is constantly seeking ways to achieve excellence nationally and internationally.

The university focuses its strength on teaching, learning and research, and has successfully forged strong collaborations with its overseas partners over its 22 years of establishment.
