Datuk Abdul Wahab Abdullah, chief executive officer of MIMOS, said:  "As the national applied research centre for ICT, micro- and nanoelectronics, we have been a key player in the development of the E&E sector.  We have established a strong ecosystem through our shared facilities, and we are moving into nanotechnology as a key enabler.  The Nano-Semiconductor Technology Centre will serve as a catalyst to thrust nanotechnology as a new growth engine."

NanoMalaysia's chief executive officer Dr Rezal Khairi Ahmad said the new collaborations will further strengthen the research, development and commercialisation of nanoelectronic devices and systems, and graphene as an emerging material for electronic devices. 

"This collaborative development and commercialisation, which essentially focuses on commercialisable market-driven nanoelectronics, particularly graphene-based, is poised to elevate Malaysia's E&E industry in terms of high-complexity products and high-value job creation through the National Graphene Action Plan 2020," said Dr Rezal.
