Emerging Stronger: Innovative Cities of Tomorrow
Emerging Stronger: Innovative Cities of Tomorrow

Singapore has been ramping up the focus on research and development, especially with the recent announcement of a $25 billion plan to chart our nation’s research, innovation and enterprise development landscape. Urban Solutions and Sustainability (or USS) is a key research domain, supporting our efforts to emerge stronger post-pandemic and to renew our City and our Home for tomorrow.

Since 2011, the biennial Urban Sustainability R&D Congress has brought our research community, agencies and industry partners together to explore opportunities and forge collaboration in USS research and translation. This year, the R&D Congress is going digital and will be rebranded as the Urban Sustainability R&D e-Symposia, that will instead comprise a series of thematic webinars over the course of a year.

There is much to discuss, and many creative urban solutions to explore. Do dial in to the webinars, share your insights, and contribute further to our urban sustainability R&D efforts.
