Message from CEO
Welcome to the Human Life Advancement Foundation (HLAF) website. I hope as you explore through our website, you may discover and understand more about our foundation, its mission, objectives, structure and other things that we as a team hold dear to our hearts.
HLAF was successfully launched by our beloved Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, former Prime Minister of Malaysia and the Chairman of HLAF, on 27 March 2013.
The Human Life Advancement Foundation is an international non-profit organisation whose prime objective is to bridge the gap between advanced and developing nations in innovation and technological advancements.
HLAF also award scholarships to PhD and Post-PhD scholars who are involved in research works that will have significant milestone and impact on the world communities. We also plan to annually present a Lifetime Achievement Award to an individual whose contribution and commitment to innovation has made an incremental impact globally.
As innovation and technological advancement is an essential catalytic factor in the global economic progress, the foundation in the near future intends to embark vigorously on the protection and commercialization of intellectual property (IP) and assets to foster innovation and create opportunities for wealth and economic sustenance. Accordingly, HLAF, where necessary, will carry out analysis and due diligence and processes for registration and maintenance of the IP.
One of the foundation’s critical agenda is to devise innovative ways to create partnerships and linkages with businesses, centres of excellence and world communities to enable knowledge and technology transfer for the common good.
Hence, I take this opportunity to seek all relevant quarters to assist and support this foundation in our pursuit of bridging the gap between nations via transfers of technologies and innovation; it is indeed for a noble cause.
It is hoped that our presence is not a mere existence of just another foundation as HLAF looks towards new opportunities and continued growth in innovation and technology globally. We strive to explore and encourage innovation, technologies, and knowledge that will benefit all humankind. On behalf of HLAF, thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
