Intel Malaysia, Multimedia Development Corporation Sdn Bhd (MDeC), and Malaysian TRIZ Innovation Association (MyTRIZ) are continuing to inculcate a culture of systematic innovation among members of academia through the deployment and application of TRIZ. The tripartite effort aims to enhance the classroom environment by imparting effective problem solving skills to more professors, lecturers, students and even secondary school teachers.  

Earlier this year, Intel, MDeC and MyTRIZ launched its inaugural MyTRIZ Competition 2012 to encourage the application of systematic innovation among students via problem solving projects. Opened to all tertiary students, lecturers and researchers in the country, the competition received an encouraging response with a total of 27 submissions from 18 local universities.
