Industry Outreach TALK

evolution of singapore's research, innovation and enterprise (RIE) strategy
Singapore started investing in R&D in the early 90s to keep the manufacturing sector competitive and to secure higher value activities. This strategy evolved to include wider societal challenges such as in healthcare; resources such as water and energy; and livability and sustainability of Singapore’s physical environment. As Singapore seeks to find solutions to our challenges, it also intends to turn these solutions and innovations into economic opportunities. The talk will trace how Singapore’s RIE strategy has evolved; how have we done; and where we might be headed into the future.
