Overview


Themed  “Emerging Stronger: Innovative Cities of Tomorrow”, the e-Symposia webinars discuss how technology and innovation can be leveraged post-pandemic to renew our City and Home, and to address existential, emerging urban challenges. Through the webinars, we look forward to share, solicit ideas for research and innovation across USS disciplines, and to seed more partnerships in our USS innovation journey.


The webinars cover research focus areas across the Urban Solutions and Sustainability (or USS) domain, and are organised into USS research themes identified as part of the Research, Innovation and Enterprise (or RIE) 2025 plans. Some of the themes include liveability, emotional connection with city, climate change, resilience, sustainability and urban systems.
