Malaysian Association for Creativity and Innovation (MACRI) is a non-profit organization founded in April 2007 to nurture a culture of innovation. Over the past 10 years MACRI has propagated its objectives through hundreds of workshops, courses, innovation camps and other knowledge based training programs. It has reached out to schools, universities, rural communities, government institutions and corporate organization to propagate its objectives.
MACRI recognizes that for innovation and R & D to flourish, the innovation ecosystem must be in place and must be vibrant. The lack of interest in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) among students is a major setback in the development of our innovation ecosystem. Hence in early 2016 MACRI forged alliance with the National STEM Movement to jointly promote STEM education programs and create greater interest in STEM among school student.
"Design Technology is an integral part of innovation. Hence MACRI is keen to collaborate with Youth Made Malaysia and help budding innovators enhance their innovations. We look forwards to promoting each other’s programs and also organizing join programs to promote creativity and innovation."
