Forwarding Enquiry: Platform for young researchers

MaGIC 6 years ago updated 6 years ago 4
I am Ahmad Muzaffar, Master Candidate 1st Year, Keio University, Japan.
I was graduated from the Department of Electronics Engineering at the same university.

I knew about MaGIC from my senior, Mr. Khairil Adri, the founder and CEO of DreamEDGE Company. I believe that MaGIC has sparked great efforts towards promoting innovation and entrepreneurship.

My passion is inventing new technology using sensors and electronic devices as well as doing business. I stayed in Japan for almost 3 years and I am doing research mainly on developing device platform for sensors. Japan is a great model of innovative country especially in sensors technology.

I really want to transfer the technology and innovation to Malaysia.Does MaGIC provide any chance or platform for young researchers especially students to work part time or provide any grant for them to contribute in new inventions?
