Message from Founder & CHAIRMAN

Technology drives economic development. Science drives social development. We need to equip scientists and innovators with adequate resources so they can keep breaking through.

A lot of people take technological and social progress for granted. These advancements, however, don’t happen overnight. Instead, lots of brains have been contributing relentlessly and silently behind these developments. Unfortunately, these efforts are often overlooked.

We aim at making knowledge of SciTech more accessible and approachable to everyone. With better knowledge, we all will aspire to have a brighter future. I wish us all a brand new page soon coming with all these technological advancements!
