    The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) is the governmental body responsible for Research and Innovation (R&I), space, science, and technology. MCST was established by central government in 1988 with the mandate of advising government on science and technology policy. Today its remit has developed and expanded to include responsibilities associated with R&I policy and strategy, science communication, as well as the management of various R&I programmes.

    MCST set up Esplora as a state-of-the-art permanent infrastructure where students, educators and members of the public can immerse themselves in hands-on, interactive science experiences in a non-formal learning facility. The core aim is to inspire visitors and staff to Explore, Think, Imagine, Appreciate and Create. The objective is to cultivate a culture of scientific curiosity, and to aid in increasing the number of STEM professionals, thus giving Malta the much-needed human capital to sustain a competitive knowledge-based economy.

    Since September 2020, MCST has participated in the strategic funded project BLUE BIO MED; an Interreg MED on Governance (PANORAMED) focusing on the sustainable blue bioeconomy. Being Malta’s National Authority responsible for drafting and overseeing the National RIS3 Strategy, MCST has extensive experience on the priorities and requirements of Malta in relation to the Blue Bioeconomy sector, thus brings forward to the consortium first-hand experience on work being carried out at a national level with regards to the local stakeholders involved in the Blue Bioeconomy sectors.

    MCST is looking to join consortia as partners on topics including Mediterranean Governance and Innovative Sustainable Economy.
