THE 7th INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INVENTION AND APPLICATION EXHIBITION (IRIA 2022)
The Innovative Research, Invention and Application Exhibition (I-RIA) was born as a platform for young inventors from Primary School to university students to showcase their Final Year Project (FYP) and innovations to be promoted to the National level. Since then, International participants were interested to join. Hence, in 2022, I-RIA is open for international inventors to participate and share their innovations. This year, I-RIA will be held via online mode since we are moving to an endemic phase.
Themed “Humanizing Today’s Technology for Resilient Future”, I-RIA 2022 provides the ideal venue for inventors, designers and entrepreneurs to showcase their latest inventions, ideas, prototypes, products and designs to investors, manufacturers, distributors and marketers who are seeking new ideas to work on, making it the ideal platform for technological commercialization and collaboration.
I-RIA 2022 is where you experience the latest ideas that are people-centered — inventions and prototypes by universities, research institutes, technical and vocational schools, secondary schools, private organizations and individual inventors who are taking scientific and technological innovation to the next level. I-RIA 2022 is expected to attract 1000 visitors and 350 exhibitors in one venue.
