As the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) gains momentum, technology becomes increasingly convergent; innovation more disruptive and more encompassing; and advances more dauntlessly into our lives.
Supporting the National Agenda
As Malaysia’s national applied R&D centre, MIMOS supports the country’s national development agenda by aligning its focus with the nine technology pillars of the 4IR. This is part of MIMOS’ role as Strategic Government Centre of Excellence and Advisory Agency for 4IR towards moving Malaysia from a nation of technology consumers to technology producers.
