The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) has teamed up with Tech.mt to deliver an informative event on the importance of Research and Innovation (R&I) and the MCST funding programmes available, with a special focus on Malta’s digital sector.
MCST is the governmental body responsible for R&I, space, science and technology. It has long-standing experience as a managing authority in the provision of national funding opportunities for research. Its remit is complemented by other entities in Malta, which at times have a more specific sectorial focus. Tech.mt is one such entity, which aims at the promotion and drive towards research within the technology sector with a focus on digital innovation.
Its collaboration with MCST provides the in-depth knowledge of the technical sector surrounding ICT and digital transformation areas, which are crucial to driving a knowledge-based economy. Tech.mt’s industry knowledge and its strong relations with local stakeholders, coupled by MCST’s experience in incentivising research, provides for a collaboration and an event that is both informative and insightful.
