About Event

The Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) is organising the inaugural Global R&D Leaders and CEOs Forum 2015, from 5-6 August 2015 in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. The theme for this Forum is “Injecting Soul into R&D”. The theme is premised upon the novel idea that it is time we move R&D beyond the pressures of commercialisation and business. Thus, we would like to initiate a movement to pursue R&D not just to cater to the usual objective of just wealth creation but more to develop and find solutions that resolve much of humankind’s vast challenges. The identified action areas that underline the theme of the Forum are as follows: 1) Finding the Soul in R&D 2) Sustainable Financing & Impact Investing 3) Co-producing Values-based Solutions 4) Technology Sharing 5) Social Innovation & Entrepreneurship
