MASTICLink holds the largest single source of information available in the country on S&T human resource, projects and facilities. This information is contributed by various individuals and organisations from government agencies including institutes of higher learning (IHL) and government research institutes (GRI) in Malaysia. These searchable databases are available to the public and accessible by MASTIC portal member for free. The following information currently available in the MASTICLink :

  • Directory of STI Organisation
    • This directory provides a listing of organisations involved in scientific and technological related activities in Malaysia. The information is based on surveys conducted by MASTIC and grouped by the public sector, the private sector, and Non-Government Organisations (NGOs).
