Australia-Singapore R&D Seminar: Commercialising in Singapore

About event:

The Australian High Commission in Singapore is inviting Australian universities to participate in its month-long Good Science = Great Business: An Australian Festival of Innovation in Singapore and ASEAN (GSGB2018) to showcase Australian science capabilities in this region. The festival, scheduled in September 2018, will comprise a series of activities covering research, startups, and government-to-government engagements.

GSGB2018 will see scientists and business leaders from Australia and Singapore come together to promote innovation collaboration and illustrate how great science translates into companies that drive future industries and economic growth in Australia, Singapore and our broader ASEAN region. Focus sectors will include medtech and health, data science, cybersecurity and defence – as well as cross-cutting themes – women in innovation, commercialisation and start-ups.

For more information on how to participate please refer to the Festival Program (subjected to changes) or contact Taliessin Reaburn, Trade Commissioner, Singapore.

‘Commercialise in Singapore’ Seminar – 17 September 2018

GSGB2018 will take place in conjunction with Singapore Week of Innovation & Technology (18-20 September) which hosts a number of international conferences such as Tech Innovation 2018, Singapore International Cyber Week 2018 and SGInnovate Deep Tech Summit. These conferences are excellent platforms for Australian research institutions to gather intel, forge new partnerships and explore research opportunities.

In view of this, Austrade will be organising a half-day seminar on Monday, 17 September 2018 to provide Australian institutions with foundational information around the commercialisation environment and regulations in Singapore. We will be inviting speakers from both government-linked research agencies and corporates with relevant experiences in spinning off technologies in-market.

The seminar is targeted at researchers, universities’ commercialisation offices as well as accelerator programs within universities that facilitate technology startups. Please refer to the program.

Please note, this event is still under development. Details will be confirmed as they become available.

  1. Researchers
  2. Commercialisation offices within Australian universities
