How do you define excellence? Excellence is synonymous with the word ‘merit’. Merit is defined as having a quality of being particular good or worthy, especially so to deserve praise or reward.
At MTE, excellence in innovation is highlighted through the Invention & Innovation Awards. It brings recognition to the best inventions, innovations, designs and ideas of the year. Adding onto its merit is its endorsement by many supporting ministries, agencies and the International Federation of Inventors’ Association (IFIA).
Why is it so important to be recognised?
Recognition is important in innovation and invention to propel ideas from its infancy to mature stage, ready for commercialisation and global implementation. The international recognition gives it the boost it needs to find its footing in today’s fast-growing world.
Winners from MTE continue along a path of success after cinching a prestigious title at MTE, paving the way to more opportunities to compete at overseas competitions including the International Invention Fair of the Middle East (Kuwait), International Exhibition of Inventions, New Techniques and Products (Geneva), and Seoul International Invention Fair (Korea) and more award shows worldwide.
In empowering the next generation, MTE has also introduced the Asian Youth Innovation Awards & Expo to elevate the youths of today. This platform has proven to be effective for the younger inventors and budding entrepreneurs to show off their skills and talents to the world, while gaining an experience of a lifetime in the process.
2018 saw the introduction of the STEM Festival, alongside National STEM Movement, to promote and further strengthen the awareness and interest in STEM in Malaysia. Its inaugural STEM Mentor-Mentee Awards is a testament to standard of excellence the STEM industry brings to the table.
