Nation building is about developing the nation to be a harmonious, progressive, prosperous and sustainable country. It is about mitigating the risks involved and harnessing the opportunities. Over the years, the Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM) has been providing strategic advice on science for the nation and its role in inspiring innovation is widely recognised. This talk by Professor Emerita Datuk Dr Asma Ismail, FASc, President, Academy of Sciences Malaysia and STI Advisor to the Government deliberates on the many challenges science face in supporting the country’s nation building agenda, now and in the future. The talk would hopefully ignite fresh ideas to further strengthen the nation’s science ecosystem and progress.
