Directorate of Research and Community Service

Universitas Islam Riau


Universitas Islam Riau, through the Directorate of Research and Community Service (DPPM), provides research grants to faculty members. Internal research grants are awarded annually, with a maximum research duration of one year. In addition to internal grants, DPPM also encourages and facilitates faculty members who wish to participate in research activities funded by external entities, such as grants from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Research, and Technology (Kemdikbudristek) and other national and international grants.

With the commitment of faculty members, financial resources, and specialized units supporting research, it can be observed in the figure that the number of research proposals funded from internal sources has increased from 2016 to 2020.
