Academic-industry Collaboration Program: ION2-DKSH

SERDANG, 7 July 2022 - An academy-industry collaboration program between the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ION2), Universiti Putra Malaysia, and DKSH Holdings (Malaysia) Berhad was held recently. Collaboration through a knowledge-sharing session entitled "Advanced Materials Characterization Talk" was led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Che Azurahanim Che Abdullah, head of Nanomaterials Synthesis and Characterization Laboratory (NSCL) and was physically organised at the ION2 Seminar Hall.

The program is to provide a platform for experience sharing by invited speakers (academia and industry) regarding the nano-scale materials characterisation and their applications in various fields. In addition, it also aims to obtain information from the industry related to materials characterisation and analytical techniques that provide accurate data to reduce errors during testing.

Lecture by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Che Azurahanim, representing academia, delivered a talk entitled "Necessities for reliable nanomaterials characterisation for biomedical applications". The industry also shared various characterisation and material analysis techniques such as X-ray diffraction and dynamic light scattering instruments for the characterisation of batteries, carbon materials, additive manufacturing, gold nanoparticles, quantum dots, PLGA, and metal-organic frameworks.

At the end of the program, Dr. Che Azurahanim emphasised the potential collaboration between academic researchers and industries in projects related to nanomaterials and applications in industry in the future. Academic-industry research collaboration is seen to contribute to the development of products and innovations that are more advanced and sustainable compared to running the same project as an individual and separate entity.
