Ikhtiar 1 : Strengthening Contributions in Agriculture and Food Security "Many achievements and contributions of UPM have been achieved. The Food Security Ikthiar was also made possible by UPM Bintulu Campus. This can be seen in the paddy transformation project AgriHub@Gedong, Sarawak to increase paddy productivity from 2 tonnes per/hectare to 10 tonnes per hectare i.e. 5 harvest every 2 years using smart land conditioner and agriculture technology. The RM3 Million Fund project is expected to help Sarawak become a food producer with the help of UPM researchers' research. Well done to UPM Bintulu Campus."
Ikthiar 2 : Aligning Research and Networking towards Social Innovation. "UPM needs to play a strong and strong role in the community through social entrepreneurship and social innovation programs. In driving social innovation, it needs to be implemented in the spirit of cohesion for the strengthening of the network between universities in the islands of Borneo UPM Bintulu Campus has taken the initiative to establish a Consortium of Universities – University of Borneo (KUUB) involving the universities of 3 countries in Borneo namely Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei which will be led by UPMKB. A total of 16 public and government-owned universities have been identified to participate in this initiative (KUUB) and the intention of the establishment (KUUB) is one of the collaborative networking efforts that can strengthen the standard of education in the islands of Borneo thus making these three countries the leading higher education destinations in the Asian region".
