According to the Gartner Glossary, electric mobility represents the concept of using electric powertrain technologies, in-vehicle information, communication technologies and connected infrastructures to enable the electric propulsion of vehicles and fleets.
In view of public health and climate change reasons, Singapore has set a long-term strategic goal of greater electrification of our transport sector by phasing out internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles and running on cleaner energy such as hybrid and electric vehicles (EVs) by 2040.
This is similar in Sweden, where the government is developing a national strategy for electrification and taking a holistic approach towards improving conditions in the energy sector to enable increased electrification, including a plan to deal with related obstacles.
While countries gear towards the future of electric mobility, universal challenges such as the consumers’ keenness and ability on adopting EVs, the costs of building sufficient infrastructure and keeping electric private and public transport accessible have yet to be overcome. The session will bring together speakers from the transport field to discuss the future of electric mobility and the synergies and differences between overseas markets.
Explore emerging trends in Advanced Manufacturing with a focus on the production of Autonomous and Electric Vehicles. Discover more about the diverse manufacturing ecosystem in Victoria, Australia and Singapore, where academia, industries, investors and governments collaborate to drive a manufacturing revival.
Join us virtually on International Women's Day as we celebrate the people and companies who #choosetochallenge perceptions and misconceptions, and lead by example in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). On this momentous day, we will be launching the SG Women in Tech Corporate Pledge Initiative and diving deep into discussion with leaders in the STEM field.
Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are inevitably transforming the world with countless possibilities and opportunities for all. Despite the growing demand for STEM roles, merely 30% of those in these industries are women. What can be done to encourage greater diversity, equality and inclusion for our daughters of tomorrow?
By choosing to include and diversify, businesses and the world will benefit from strengthened innovations and advancements in STEM, especially in the age of disruptive science and technologies. Hear from leaders how they #choosetochallenge the inequality in their industry and their visions for the future of science and tech.
Discover from the world's clinical and technical experts as they share and discuss the state-of-art technologies in healthcare, and how to bring the technology from bench to bedside.
Innovations often require out of the box thinking. Businesses who try to reach successful competitors' benchmarks often fail to create solutions that set them apart. The failure is attributed to the restrictive perspective one usually have within one particular industry.
On the contrary, innovative complementary applications in other sectors can also be identified as opportunities. Given the scalability and applicability of deep technologies across different industries, looking beyond one's industry sector for suitable adaption of innovative solutions is becoming increasingly important.
In this webinar, we take a more in-depth look into the aviation industry in Singapore. Join us and find out how startups of different industries, can contribute to providing innovative solutions for air traffic management systems.

Deep tech companies differentiate themselves from traditional tech by their ability to offer cutting-edge and disruptive technologies based on profound scientific discoveries to solve big societal problems. One would think that any invention or innovation that helps make life easier would inevitably and almost automatically find its way into society. Still, a closer look at the process of commercialisation or, simply put, moving deep tech out of the lab and into the marketplace reveals that while it is one thing to discover, design or develop, it is quite another in taking the next step – to mass produce, monetise or market.
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics and other Deep Tech are gaining more significant influence and foothold in society and the economy all across the globe. However, according to the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2020, a mere 26% of AI and Data professionals and 18% of Robotics Engineers globally are women.
Advanced Manufacturing, or "Industry 4.0,” has been viewed as a key pillar for Singapore's growth. In Singapore, the manufacturing sector alone accounts for nearly a fifth of the country's GDP. At the Industry Transformation Asia Pacific (ITAP) event in October 2020, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat has emphasised that Singapore can be “a more digital, more resilient advanced manufacturing base” for the world.
While the move to a digital manufacturing environment might seem challenging, the adoption of digitalisation and automation of manufacturing processes are crucial in facing the global economic headwinds. As part of the digital transformation, various partnership platforms are now available in Singapore, such as the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC) and Singtel FutureNow Innovation Centre, which both drive private-public partnerships and help enterprises with their transformation journey. Manufacturers, researchers, startups and investors now have ease of access to establish collaborations, share resources and explore digital solutions which offer more innovation-based and high-value production.
Join us at our event where industry experts share how digital solutions can be driven within the manufacturing industry, how corporates, startups, and researchers may work together to further adopt these solutions at scale.

We invite you to join our third PLAN.AI webinar, on the role of technology and design in building resilient and sustainable cities of the future. Presented by SGInnovate and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of Singapore, the PLAN.AI series aims to advance the discourse beyond the usual urban planning analytics to AI-powered city planning.
The Covid-19 pandemic has made the ideas and insights of smart technology in the fields of urban planning and design even more important, as many cities are looking to implement changes for a more resilient, sustainable and healthier future. Singapore’s National Development Minister Desmond Lee said in September 2020 that “this pandemic has strengthened our resolve to quicken the transformation of our entire construction and built environment sector, so that it becomes more integrated and resilient,” and urged developers to continue leading the charge in research and innovation efforts, and adopting advanced technologies and innovative designs.
Join us for an exclusive sharing by Sidewalk Labs, Alphabet Inc.’s urban innovation company working to make cities more sustainable and affordable for all, through technology tools such as Delve that brings machine learning into the urban development process. The sharing will be followed by a fireside chat on how we can work together to build sustainable, affordable and desirable cities of the future.

Almost ten years on from the coining of ‘Industry 4.0’ by the German government in 2011, the term has found worldwide popularity, with countries racing to increase digitisation in industrial automation and manufacturing. The next decade will bring a new era of growth for Industry 4.0 and industrial robotics, with COVID-19 forcing businesses to rethink their operations and breaking down the remaining barriers to adoption.
Our lives have suddenly been forced into the core of the digital world this year. We are still able to work and socialise globally because of the advancement in technology. Despite the situation we are in today, scientists will continue to advance the technology to aid the human race.
