This event enables to generate motivation for other UEH lecturers to join in other global scientific associations over different fields in the upcoming years with the hope of boosting the academic exchange activities. Participation in accredited associations is one of the most necessary activities to increase UEH academic status. Since the academic status of a university plays a pivotal role in the ranking of global universities.
