In his speech, he emphasised that young scientists in Malaysia hold immense importance for the nation, whereby they are the key drivers to unlocking new frontiers of innovation. As such, the YSN-ASM is an avenue to establish strong networks and collaborations with international institutions, harnessing their expertise and knowledge to propel Malaysia’s Science, Technology, Innovation and Economy (STIE) ecosystem.
Earlier, YB Tuan Chang Lih Kang was involved in the dialogue session with the YSN-ASM members. During this session, questions and concerns from YSN-ASM members regarding the involvement of young scientists in the nation’s STIE ecosystem were addressed. The outcome of this session is expected to bridge the gap between young scientists and the ministry, ultimately contributing to a stronger nation.
