Summary and propel the peaceful application of nuclear technology in various areas including industry, medical and healthcare,
food and agriculture, water and environment, natural resources and energy to support the sustainable development of
the nation.

WNM 2030 is Nuklear Malaysia’s commitment towards a more competitive, productive and effective organisation in
delivering its functions, built upon strong nuclear science and technology foundations. Nuklear Malaysia is committed
to strengthen its core activities to be in line with national aspirations and international agendas. This in turn will optimise
the values and impacts that can be offered by Nuklear Malaysia for national socio-economic development. This document
is prepared based on the foundation laid from the previous strategic plan as well as taking into account the relevant
national and international policies and plans including the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030, Malaysia Development
Plan, National Policy on Science, Technology and Innovation (NPSTI) and the SDGs. It was formulated afterin-depth
consultations among experts in Nuklear Malaysia and thorough assessment on the future outlook of nuclear science
and technology in the country.

This document aims to provide strategic plan on enhancement of Nuklear Malaysia’s capacity and capability as a
proponent of nuclear science and technology in Malaysia. WNM 2030 will drive Nuklear Malaysia towards achieving its
main objectives, which are:

To generate new products and technologies through research
and innovation based on national development agenda;

To enhance organisational excellence through planning and
quality management;

To strengthen Nuklear Malaysia as a National Technical Support

Nuklear Malaysia Vision Introduction1

1.1 With more than four decades in existence, Nuklear Malaysia has been implementing its functions in line with the
Background government’s policies such as Vision 2020, various Malaysia Plans, and the NPSTI. It also ensures its activities are well
suited with mainstream science and technology and fulfil national interest.
Nuklear Malaysia Vision
Nuklear Malaysia was established to promote the peaceful uses of nuclear technology and as one of the contributors
and catalysts for national socio-economic development. All activities in Nuklear Malaysia are planned and formulated in
line with the national interest on the basis of eight major areas including but not limited to (1) industry, (2) medical and
healthcare, (3) food and agriculture, (4) natural resource, (5) waters, (6) environment, (7) energy and (8) nuclear safety,
security and safeguards.

Strengthening expertise, increasing capability and upgrading knowledge are part Nuklear Malaysia’s strategies in human
capital development. In order to be able to perform its functions effectively, Nuklear Malaysia has a pool of qualified
and competent human capital to implement all the planned activities. As of June 2021, it has a total of 741 staff. The
distribution of permanent, contract and cadre staff up to June 2021 is shown in Figure 1.

Nuklear Malaysia Vision 1.3 Nuklear Malaysia is dedicated to fulfilling its commitments to its customers and stakeholders, both locally and
Customers and internationally. Customers are categorised into two groups (1) internal and (2) external customers. Internal customers
refer to those within Nuklear Malaysia, while external customers are entities from government and regulatory
Stakeholders authorities, private sectors, educational institutions, non-governmental organisations and the public.

Activities in Nuklear Malaysia take into account its stakeholders’ needs. Amongst Nuklear Malaysia’s stakeholders are:

a. Relevant ministries and government agencies (eg. MOSTI, MOF, MAFI, MOH, etc.)
b. Relevant regulatory bodies (AELB, KKM, etc.)
c. IAEA, CTBTO and other international bodies
d. Universities and education and training institutions
e. Local communities and private sector

1.4 This new decade will be a time of challenges, where technology is anticipated to rapidly transform and shape
Future Aspiration the world from the emerging issues relating to climate change and public health / infectious diseases. Thus, to
sustain its relevancy, Nuklear Malaysia must ensure its activities are in line with national interests and international
developments. At the national level, for the period of 2021-2030, the main policies that will be in focus are the 12th
- 15th Malaysia Development Plans and the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030. The primary aim of the Shared Prosperity
Vision 2030 is to provide a decent standard of living to all Malaysians by 2030.

With the help of 10-10 framework vibrant ecosystem, Nuklear Malaysia aspires to become one of the pace-setter
institutions contributing to a sustainable, progressive, prosperous and harmonious develop nation in 2030.

Huge societal and economic changes which rely on science and technology is anticipated in Malaysia in future, as
stated in DSTIN 2021 – 2030 by MOSTI. On this note, WNM2030 has outlined various strategies and initiative in
localization of Nuclear Technologies. Through these strategies, Nuklear Malaysia has set forth to champion several
areas of technology localization in the future such as reactor, accelerator, radiotracer technology, rare earth as well
and radioisotope in medical.

A fully operating 30 MeV cyclotron will be available by 2030 for applications that contributes to the socio-economic
development of the country especially in the medical and industrial sectors. Through these facilities, it will open up
new industries with strong knowledge and huge market.


Exploiting national natural resources responsibly in the future has been started by Nuklear Malaysia today. In future Nuklear Malaysia Vision
Nuklear Malaysia is targeted to become the centre for the development of advance sensor using local materials. These
local materials also could be used as a starting material for affordable and durable renewable hydrogen fuel cell system
for energy security.

In medical sector, Nuklear Malaysia has set its purpose in improving and enhancing access to nuclear medicine and
facilitating their procedures. These will literally improve the quality of life of the people. With these improvisations,
Nuklear Malaysia will then contributed to the aim of the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030.

Nuklear Malaysia has started R&D programme in new variety of food plant that can be mass produced and is tolerant
with climate change in the future. Nuklear Malaysia also will become National Technical Support Organization (TSO)
in the natural resources and water quality management using nuclear technologies for the beneficiaries of the health,
safety and wellbeing of the people and the nation. With the establishment of Centre for Forensic Science & Technology,
Nuklear Malaysia will have new state of the art facilities to apply nuclear technology in forensic studies.

As the national Technical Support Organisation (TSO), Nuklear Malaysia is committed to support the related KEGA,
including Industry 4.0, Centre of Excellence, Smart and High Value Agriculture and Advanced and Modern Services. On
this note, Nuklear Malaysia will continue to innovate and develop high impact and value-added products and processes
which can be commercialised and transferred to industries or communities. The focus will not be limited to nuclear
science and technology but will be developed in convergence with other related technologies such as information and
communication technology, biotechnology and nanotechnology.

Nuklear Malaysia has also revived the effort to formulate the National Policy on Nuclear Technology 2021-2030. The
objective of this policy is to provide goals and requirements to guide the national agenda for the advancement of
peaceful uses of nuclear technology. It charts a direction to propel the development of nuclear technology in addressing
the nation’s needs and supporting national initiatives towards implementing the Sustainable Development Goals
and Shared Prosperity Vision 2030. The policy was formulated through in-depth consultation with relevant national
