World Innovation Forum Kuala Lumpur (WIF-KL)




Malaysia is privileged to host the World Innovation Forum in Kuala Lumpur. WIF-KL is jointly organised by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation Malaysia (MOSTI) and Malaysian Innovation Foundation (YIM), capitalising on the successes of the KL Innovation Forum (KLIF) Series held in 2010 and 2011. WIF-KL provides an avenue to bring thought leaders and creative minds from all over the world to discuss and share their experience.


WIF-KL will comprise four core events, namely KL Innovation Forum 2012; BioMalaysia Conference and Exhibition 2012; Nano Malaysia Summit and Expo 2012 and the National Innovation Conference and Exhibition (NICE) 2012; as well as eight satellite events. An estimated 1,500 international delegates from 50 countries and 10,000 visitors are expected to visit the World Innovation Exposition, which will be held alongside the Forum. The Exposition, one of the main attractions of WIF-KL, will showcase innovations ranging from the grassroots to sectors such as education, services and industry.

The global socioeconomic area for sustainable development has changed immensely in the last few years and WIF-KL will, therefore, address some of the key drivers and unique issues surrounding policies, framework strategies and best practices of innovative nations. In line with the National Innovation Movement, WIF-KL is also set to springboard Malaysia’s agenda to position herself as a key player in the global innovation movement for socioeconomic growth.



Who should attend?

The WIF-KL is designed for anyone involved or responsible for the socioeconomic growth of communities, companies and nations through innovation. This Forum will be of particular benefit to policy makers; planners and senior government officers; chief company executives and directors; research scientists and inventors; academia and students; NGOs and communities.
