  • Alternative Proteins: Balancing Food Quality and Quantity

    With an insatiable global demand for protein, food supply chains have become more complex than ever before, further complicating the global food landscape. This increasing complexity means that traditional food production companies are faced with a constant struggle to produce more food to keep up with the growing food demand. In the race to produce more, how do we ensure quality versus quantity? In Singapore, we are also working towards our “30 by 30” goal of raising our food production levels from 10% to 30% of total food and nutritional needs by 2030.

  • Driving Digital Solutions in Manufacturing

    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.

  • Future of Mobility-as-a-Service and Autonomous Vehicles [Online Event]

    In the age of digitalisation, many have seen a change in their lifestyle choices. Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS), the potential use of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) and improvement in travel planning have created a more optimal and consumer-friendly mobility system. This might cause a shift away from personally-owned modes of transportation and towards mobility provided as a service. On the other hand, COVID-19 is causing new challenges, and shared mobility might prove to be less desirable. How will this impact the short term developments and what can be expected in the longer term? How can solution providers respond to the current situation and plan for the near and long-term future?
