Event description
Asia Innovates will bring together over 150 innovators for a unique two-day conference at the edge of technology, engineering and business.

About this event

The Asia Innovates Summit is a showcase celebration marking five years of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s flagship Leaders in Innovation Fellowships (LIF) programme. The summit is delivered by the Academy as part of the UK's Newton Fund which, through a variety of science and innovation activities, supports the economic development and social welfare of developing countries.

The event will bring together leaders from the innovation ecosystem of seven countries, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, alongside notable innovators, entrepreneurs and investors from the UK. The conference will present the unique characteristics that make these seven Asian markets competitive. It will showcase sectors where Asia leads the world, discuss the challenges that these local entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystems face, and discuss how they can be overcome.

The two-day summit is hosted by the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT).

What to expect

For the last five years, the LIF programme has fostered innovation leadership among some of the world’s brightest engineers, researchers and scientists. From energy to medical engineering and agriculture, the thousand-strong LIF community has the potential to shake up virtually every industry across the world.

The Asia Innovates Summit hopes to both showcase and supercharge that extraordinary potential. To achieve this, on Wednesday (16 October) attendees will hear from a combination of leading regional and UK speakers and trainers, in areas as diverse as sustainable development, artificial intelligence and biotechnology. Attendees will be encouraged to engage in thought-provoking discussions and share their expertise about developing innovative and deep-tech businesses in Asia.

The learning-focused programme on Thursday (17 October) will consist of intense workshops, whole-group and break-out sessions designed to develop specific business knowledge. Topics will include subjects such as dealing with intellectual property and building business partnerships.

The pre-event evening (15 October) and the two conference days, will provide a rich social programme. The summit’s carefully curated activities will enable you to network, connect with LIF innovators and external guests from the region, the UK and Europe.

The three focus areas of the summit are:

  • Creating positive social change by fostering entrepreneurship.
  • Deepening partnerships between Asia and the UK.
  • Taking the next steps in business development and fostering meaningful partnerships.

Keep an eye on the Asia Innovates webpage for speaker announcements and agenda updates.
