Might and Kistep join hands to formulate new clean tecnology for M’sian industries


KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (Might) is working with the Korean Institute for Science and Technology Evaluation and Planning (Kistep) to come up with new clean technology for Malaysia.

In a statement here yesterday, Might said the agreement signed, would see the cooperation of the two organisations with Kistep providing advice on emerging opportunities in clean technology and network facilitation with industry experts.

It said input from global partners like Kistep was vital to ensure the country had an international perspective on emerging technologies, the opportunities and new markets, presented.

Kistep had agreed to help identify critical technology sectors for Malaysia’s development in the next ten years, critical industries at risk and new potential industries yet to be captured.

Might, an agency in the Prime Minister’s Department, is expected to launch the National Foresight Institute later this month that would support evidence-based scenario planning for science and technology development in Malaysia. — Bernama
