Public Awareness of Science, Technology & Innovation Malaysia 2019
The 2019 Public Awareness of STI Malaysia Study was the eighth in a series of surveys
conducted by the Malaysian Science and Technology Information Centre (MASTIC). The aim of
the survey was to assess the Malaysian public’s awareness and understanding of, interest in,
and attitude towards STI as well as to discern their involvement in STI programmes.
The results of this study are intended not only for government agencies and policy makers, but
also for the educational and private sector. The findings are particularly useful to enable
educationists and policy makers to come up with strategies to make STI more appealing to
Malaysians. They will also allow us to take a closer look at how we could employ STI to
strengthen our position internationally and bring our country on par with developed nations.
The Public's Awareness of STI Malaysia 2019 Report is especially important given the
importance that our country has placed on STI to propel us towards addressing the challenges
of the future.
