Integrity ● Honour ● Progress
In 2006, MARS together with PROTEMP Exhibitions and Conferences Sdn. Bhd. created a platform, entitled ‘Malaysia Technology Expo’ (MTE) where the researchers, scientists and innovators from the government, private higher learning institutions and individuals can showcase their entries. This lends a platform for the technocrats and innovators to showcase their cradle or near term projects to the public and a targeted audience of potential investors. The Invention & Innovation Awards is the main awards programme at MTE, according recognition to the year’s most outstanding entries. From its inception to the present, judging of the entries is assessed by a panel of judges live onsite at the event; to ensure fair and impartial assessment of all participants.
What The Awards Stands For
From its inception to the present, judging of the entries is assessed by a panel of judges live onsite at the event; to ensure fair and impartial assessment of all participants.
The word ‘honour’ means high respect/recognition/distinction; which is what the Invention & Innovation Awards represents. The entries are measured against a set of evaluation criteria by the panel of judges comprised of industrial leaders and experts. The aim here is to honour the values and principles of inventions/innovations and their creators.
‘Progress’ is defined as the ‘development towards an improved or more advanced condition’ or ‘forward or onward movement towards a destination’. Invention & Innovation Awards evaluation criteria are used as guidelines for the creators and their inventions/innovations on moving forward towards commercialization.
