KUALA LUMPUR,.(Asianews) Dr Ong Kian Ming, Deputy Minister of International Trade & Industry (MITI) said: ”The US, UK, China, Australia, Germany and Canada have allocated huge sums of investments to build graphene hubs and kickstart graphene research and commercialisation.
The European Union’s Graphene Flagship Programme demonstrates an unprecedented level of commitment to exploit the benefits of graphene.
NanoMalaysia Berhad and Phantoms Foundation Spain are joining forces to bring together executives and decision makers from multinational corporations, leading entrepreneurs, policymakers and academicians for an opportunity to network, exchange ideas and gain insights into nanotechnology, and revolutionise innovations with graphene technology.
Graphene Malaysia 2018: Strengthening Graphene Ecosystems Towards the National Agenda held at Menara MITI aims to be a catalyst for interaction and collaborative innovation within the Graphene Industry.
Malaysia is fully cognisant of the economic potential of nanotechnology especially of this wonder material, graphene. The global graphene market size was valued at USD23.7 million in 2015 and it is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 36% from 2016 to 2025.
The government led by MITI, will launch the National Policy on Industry 4.0 (2018- 2025) which will outline the action plan on the use of technologies related to Industry 4.0. The policy aims to increase productivity and the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry and focus will be given on several sectors including nanotechnology.”
Organised under the aegis of the National Graphene Action Plan 2020 spearheaded by NanoMalaysia Berhad, this annual global event supported by the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC), Ministry International Trade and Industry (MITI), the Malaysian Investment Development Authority (MIDA), and SCOPUS is open to industry leaders, small and medium entrepreneurs, start-up business owners, academicians, researchers and students who are interested in revolutionising innovations with graphene.
This flagship event under Malaysia’s National Graphene Action Plan 2020, now on its third edition will offers participants positive insights from industry experts on emerging technologies in advanced materials, the challenges and opportunities in nanotechnology as one of the drivers of the fourth industrial revolution, as well as its impact on business, government and people. Prominent leaders of the industry will be present at the conference to share their achievements and innovation roadmaps, as well as explore partnersh
