Putting "Science into Action" in Pursuit of Malaysia's Bioeconomy Initiative
Malaysia possesses a significant biological sciences talent pool with the promise of creating a bio-based economy with a little help from policy makers and private partners. As a standing member of Malaysian Prime Minister Dato' Sri Mohd Najib's Bio-International Advisory Panel (Bio-IAP) and leader of Larta's multi-year Malaysia Commercialization Assistance Program, our CEO Rohit Shukla has played a compelling role in preparing for Malaysia's "bioeconomy." Most recently, Rohit traveled to Malaysia to present on Larta's Network-Centric approach to fostering and accelerating entrepreneurial ventures at their "Science to Action" seminar focused on getting technologies to the marketplace where they can make an economic and social impact. We anticipate a new set of activities for Larta working with our Malaysian partners within the next year.
