Our very own Innovation Futurist, Mallek Aminullah, was a part of the panelist discussion session titled Exploratory Discourse: Charting the way Forward for Malaysia Open Science. Mallek spoke on Open Science towards realising Open Innovation. While the Open Science initiative promises to make data from all stages of scientific research to be findable and accessible with little to no barriers. How then can the scientific community leverage on this opportunity to bring business value to the private sector in the form of innovation initiatives that are aligned with the corporate strategy.
It was touched on how through open innovation, members of the industry and academic community can collaborate and co-create to provide exponential value at a national level. With the rapid change in technology, the competitive landscape has shifted and the need for knowledge and information sharing is sorely needed. Organisational leaders have the responsibility to create a conducive environment that encourages individuals and teams to experiment, learn and build relationships of trust.
