The Corporate Laboratory@University scheme, launched by the NRF in March 2013, supports the establishment of key laboratories by industries in our universities. The scheme seeks to strengthen Singapore’s innovation system by encouraging public-private R&D collaboration between universities and companies. It ensures that universities achieve impact by developing cutting edge solutions for problems faced by industry.
The scheme attracts foreign and Singapore companies to collaborate with autonomous universities on industry-relevant research. It enhances collaborative partnerships between universities and industries, and enables faculty, researchers, PhD and Master’s students to work alongside companies on programmes that have direct relevance for the industry. This will support the effective translation of laboratory work for the marketplace.
Students gain industrial experience, preparing them for employment in high value-add sectors. Industry partners can tap scientific and technological capabilities built up in our universities to develop new products and services. Research is geared towards supporting business growth for companies, generating economic benefits for Singapore, and creating good jobs for Singaporeans.
