Following the recognition of Malaysia’s top scientific minds, Deputy Minister of MESTECC YB Puan Isnaraissah Munirah Majilis also launched the ASM ArtScience™ Initiative during the 2019 Conferment Ceremony and Announcement of 2019 Top Research Scientists Malaysia.
Nine Top Research Scientists, 27 new Fellows and one Senior Fellow were the highlights of the 2019 Conferment of Fellowship of the Academy of Sciences Malaysia and the Announcement of the 2019 Top Research Scientists Malaysia (TRSM).
In conjunction with ASM’s 25th Anniversary next year, the ASM Fellows’ Lecture series has been rebranded as FAScinate™. FAScinate™ is a play on the word “fascinate” combined with “FASc”, the abbreviation for Fellow of the Academy of Sciences Malaysia.
The I-CONNECT and Malaysia Open Science Platform (MOSP) initiatives were officiated by the Minister of MESTECC, YB Puan Yeo Bee Yin, during a Launching Ceremony held on 7 November 2019 at the Putrajaya Convention Centre (PICC).
