The MOSTI Social Innovation (MSI) project was launched with the objective of improving the well-being of the society through the implementation of project, services, capacity and skill building or innovation output using the existing technology that can be implemented sustainably.
As a start, the implementation of MSI involves outreach programmes to the grassroots level and scaling up innovative ideas from the outreach programme with the objective of “humanising innovation”.
Innovators can submit their project ideas to MESTECC for the MSI grant. MESTECC functions as a one-stop centre for innovators to submit their innovations with proof-of-concept. The innovation projects will be matched with its agencies and collaborators to facilitate and monitor the projects.
