Prof Balbir Singh, FASc, who was recently elected as a Fellow of the prestigious Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM), attended the Conferment of ASM Fellowship ceremony in KL on 31st October 2015. The Fellowship certificate was presented to Prof Balbir by Datuk Seri Panglima Madius Tangau, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation. Also present on stage were the President and Vice-President of ASM, Tan Sri Dr Ahmad Tajuddin Ali and Prof Dato' Dr Asma Ismail, respectively. Prof Balbir was one of 25 who was conferred as a Fellow of ASM that day. The election of new Fellows is crucial to ensure sustainability of the ASM since the ASM taps the expertise, knowledge and network of its Fellows to provide Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) input to the government and stakeholders. Through Fellows, ASM continues to demonstrate its commitment in the international STI arena through its strategic membership of multilateral STI networks, its active role in governance of these networks, and its participation in important global scientific interactions. At the national level, a Fellow through the Academy has the opportunity to advance their ideas to push the envelope for S&T development in the country.
