Dear Respected Researchers,
Datuk Seri/Dato’ Seri/Datuk/Dato’/Datin/Prof./Assoc.Prof. Dr./Dr./Tuan/Puan,
Malaysia Grand Challenge (MGC) was introduced to promote the country's Research, Development, Commercialization and Innovation (R & D & C & I) activities. From 2021, MOSTI will offer research and development fund financing under the Strategic Technology Drive Fund (PEMACU) Program which is extended to applicants from startups and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) through agencies under the Ministry.
MGC seeks high quality and impact research according to the areas of priority that have been identified through the 10-10 MySTIE framework as well as the 30 Niche Areas that have been developed. The 10 priority areas are energy, education, water and food, agriculture and forestry, environment and biodiversity, smart cities and transportation, medicine and healthcare, culture, arts and tourism, business and financial services as well as technology and smart systems (engineering and making a new generation). This priority area will be matched with 10 science and technology drives (Science & Technology Drivers) such as 5G / 6G, blockchain, advanced intelligence system and others. Emphasis will be given to projects in the form of experimental development that are practical and specific as well as provide space for innovation towards a faster level towards commercialization.
The five (5) R&D MOSTI Funding Schemes that cover the spectrum of Technological Readiness Level (TRL) are namely the:
1) Strategic Research Fund (SRF),
2) Technology Development Fund 1 (TeD1)
3) Technology Development Fund 2 (Ted2)
