  About the organizers


The Ministry was first established in 1973 as the Ministry of Technology, Research and Local Government. In 1976, in line with new functions and responsibilities pertaining to environmental matters, the Ministry then changed its name to Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment (MOSTE). On 27th March 2004, the Cabinet agreed to the restructuring of MOSTE and the name was changed to Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) in order to lead the National ICT Development function, Multimedia and Innovation. In 2007, the science and technology function was divided into Biotechnology, ICT, Industry, Sea to Space and S&T Services clusters.

About YIM 

Yayasan Inovasi Malaysia (YIM), or the Malaysian Foundation for Innovation, was established on 20th October 2008 and was approved by Malaysian Cabinet on 7th November 2008. The vision of YIM is to promote and inculcate creativity and innovation among Malaysian citizens, especially targeting children and youth, women, rural folk, people with disabilities and non-government organizations. With close support from the Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation, YIM was established by the Government to promote and champion innovation, and by doing so, to mobilize Malaysians to embrace and practice Creativity and Innovation. This could not have happened at a better time, when the nation is in need of a new impetus and catalyst to move it forward to a prosperous future.
