KUALA LUMPUR, 28th October 2015 – NanoMalaysia Berhad and Lux Research, in the second year running team up again to provide positive insights, share initiatives and trigger necessary actions responding to current and emerging challenges of re-energizing Malaysia’s industry for sustainable economic growth through advanced materials by organising the Lux Research – NanoMalaysia Forum 2015.
“Developing national commercial capability in nanotechnology is a must. This effort should gain cooperation from many sectors either government or private. Our NBOS-based national commercialization for nanotechnology namely iNanovation provide values for Malaysia to gain competitive advantage over other countries.” said YBhg. Dato’ Sri Dr. Noorul Ainur Mohd. Nur, Secretary General of MOSTI, officiated the forum on behalf of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation Malaysia, YB Datuk Panglima Madius Tangau.
The Secretary General Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI), technology scouts, investors and policy makers convened today at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre to network and learn about the business opportunities of emerging technologies. The Lux Research – NanoMalaysia Forum 2015: Re-energizing Economic Growth Through Advanced Materials Innovations hosted by NanoMalaysia Berhad and Lux Research had become a landmark conference for innovation in advanced materials and nanotechnology in Malaysia with a clear outcome of fostering collaborations on mutual investment and commercial interests.
This forum featured industry expert speakers presenting latest global market trends in nanotechnology and advanced materials and related innovations by large corporations. In the Speed Pitch session, three Malaysian nanotechnology-based start-up companies were introduced for investment opportunities. Participants were made to understand the respective roles of industry, research domain, funding authorities and government agencies in breathing new life into Malaysia’s economy through relevant technology.
YBrs. Dr. Rezal Khairi Ahmad, Chief Executive Officer of NanoMalaysia also stressed, NanoMalaysia through iNanovation and National Graphene Action Plan 2020 prioritise commercialization of endogenous nanotechnology innovations but crucially open for international collaborations in the form of technology transfer, joint-ventures and co-investments and this forum is the conducive arena for that.
Lux Research is proud to co-host this event with NanoMalaysia for second year. Both organizations continue to make significant contributions to the development of Malaysia’s industry. This event is rapidly becoming the nation’s central platform and meeting place for all stakeholders involved in the development, commercialization and use of nanotechnology applications and solutions.
