The Science, Technology and Environment Partnership (STEP) Centre, established within the Ministry of Education, had started its operation since the beginning of 1999. Its operation was marked with the Signing of Memorandum of Understanding between the Ministry of Education and Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sendirian Berhad, as its first partner.
As part of the centre main policy, the word “partnership” in this context means that programmes and activities would be organized in collaboration / cooperation / close communications between the educational institutions and other ministries, departments, business and industries; and related non-government organizations (national, regional and international). Through this partnership, it is expected that benefits would be gained by all the organizations involved.
