Around four hundred scholars gathered at the Holiday Villa Hotel in Subang Jaya, Malaysia from the 1st to the 3rd of November 2010 to participate in arguably the world’s number one conference on learning, innovation and competence systems. Picked as the frst Southeast Asian nation to host such a prestigious conference, University of Malaya did a splendid job to ensure that the opportunity made the university and country proud. The occasion was the 8th Globelics International Conference. Globelics is the acronym for Global Network for Economics of Learning, Innovation and Competence Building Systems, which uses evolutionary thinking as the basis for addressing the issues of science, technology and development. The frst Globelics conference was organized in Rio de Janeiro in 2003. Subsequent conferences were held in Beijing (China), Johannesburg (South Africa), Trivandrum (India), Saratov (Russia), Mexico City (Mexico) and Dakar (Senegal). In Malaysia the conference was entitled, Making Innovation Work for Society: Linking, Leveraging and Learning. This has very much been the dominant route East and Southeast Asia took to reach the technology frontier in a number of industries.
