The event was witnessed by MOSTI Minister Datuk Seri Panglima Wilfred Madius Tangau.
MIMOS CEO Ahmad Rizan Ibrahim said that as a national R&D centre, MIMOS has been defining and developing technology platforms for Smart City initiatives. He said that MIMOS had also established an open innovation framework for the development of technologies by industry researchers, research institutions and universities, which can be leveraged by startups and technopreneurs.

With the MoU, MIMOS became a member of MaGIC’s Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility (CER) network, a programme that connects corporates and entrepreneurs with opportunities to leverage each other’s expertise.
