Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) Signing Ceremony between KITA, AMIC and PROMETIL, 8 June 2018

Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) Signing Ceremony between Institute of Ethnic Studies (KITA-UKM), Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Centre (AMIC) and PROMETIL S.A.R.L. (PROMETIL) was held on 8 June 2018 (Friday) at Puri Pujangga Hotel here in Bangi.

The event was attended by Distinguished Prof. Datuk Dr. Shamsul Amri Baharuddin, Director of Institute of Ethnic Studies (KITA-UKM), Mr. Marc Canitrot, Chief Executive Officer of PROMETIL S.A.R.L., Dr. Liew Kan-Ern, Chief Executive Officer of Aerospace Malaysia Innovation Centre (AMIC), Mr. Karim Mansur Ali, General Manager of AMIC and Dr. Juyeon Kang, R & D Engineer of PROMETIL.

The tri-partite MoA is about a two-year applied research to develop automatized tools for human capital development in the context of Malaysian aerospace manufacturing industry.

This collaboration is unique for two reasons:

  • It is a meaningful collaboration between international company (PROMETIL is a French tech company), local company (AMIC) and a public institution (UKM-KITA);
  • It is ground-breaking research using social science (sociology at work, linguistics, IO psychology, cognitive sociology) and science (neuroscience) at the service of technology (mechanical engineering and software programming).

In addition, the French embassy shows its interest by granting a 3-month scholarship for a Malaysian intern to work at PROMETIL headquarters in Toulouse, France.
