Geoscience Ideas Xchange is a joint platform of the Institute of Geology Malaysia (IGM) and Geological Society of Malaysia (GSM), to discuss developments in geoscience practice in the country. The purpose of the platform is to get inputs from practitioners on their issues and identify pathways to resolve them.

The focus of the inaugural session is on enhancing linkages between geoscience business entities in Malaysia. This has become an increasingly pressing issue since the regulation of the practice of geoscience in the country under the Geologists Act 2008 (Act 689). The session will involve a “thought starter” presentation by the lead discussant. This will be followed by a moderated open exchange involving the participants, where the goal is to identify key follow-up actions for implementation by geoscience entities such as IGM and GSM, among others.

The event is free of charge. All Members are welcome.
