Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences


Sarawak RDC will collaborate with CATS in the areas of joint research and development projects, student and staff internship, and a mobility exchange programme between Cambridge and Sarawak.

This Scientific Exchange Programme is a direct result of discussions held between the Chief Minister of Sarawak, YAB Datuk Patinggi (Dr) Abang Haji Abdul Rahman Zohari bin Tun Datuk Abang Haji Openg, and University of Cambridge officials during the visit to Cambridge in April of 2017 by the Chief Minister, to explore collaboration with the university in areas that are beneficial for the state’s development. 

The agreement provides a framework to facilitate and expand science and technology cooperation between the two organizations, and provides a mechanism for critical research and development efforts that facilitate the exchange of scientific data and results, protect intellectual property rights, and establish partnerships between departments and institutes of Cambridge University and their counterpart research institutions in Sarawak. Expanded cooperation in science and technology will allow us to establish relationships between universities, researchers, and business leaders.

The signing of this agreement underscores the commitment by the Sarawak government, to the people of Sarawak, and their aspiration of achieving a developed and progressive state.  It is one of a number of initiatives implemented following the estabishment of the Sarawak Research and Development Ordinance in 2017.
