  • How FoodTech Ensures Our Food Security Beyond Covid-19

    Here in Singapore, we love our food, and we cannot lie. With many dishes and flavours from all corners of the world, it’s no wonder eating is the (unofficial) Singapore’s favourite pastime. As we continue to enjoy the latest food trends and culinary recipes, it’s essential that we not ignore the growing concern over our food supply.

  • Will AI Disrupt Flavour and Ingredient Innovation?

    We have entered a new era where Artificial Intelligence (AI) enhances human decisions. Every industry is going through a significant transformation - the food industry is no different. Food innovation, mainly in flavour and ingredient innovation, which previously required significant manual research, can be accelerated much more efficiently with the help and proper use of Artificial Intelligence.

  • Science and Technology: The Cornerstone of Singapore’s Green Future

    The Singapore Green Plan 2030 seeks to tackle climate change by ensuring Singapore achieve its long-term net-zero emissions goals so as to strengthen Singapore’s commitments under the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. In order to achieve these goals, promoting innovation under the RIE2025 plan will be vital to ensure developments in science and sustainable technologies, and will be a key enabler in establishing Singapore as a leading hub for sustainability.  
     
    Join key players and thought leaders as they discuss the role of research and development in strengthening areas in Singapore such as sustainable packaging, decarbonisation, waste upcycling, water treatment and urban farming.

  • Understanding Water Technology Innovations for Smart Cities

    According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)’s study, 47 per cent of the world's population will be living in areas of high water stress by 2030. The problem of water scarcity affects urban areas more severely, with 14 of the world's 20 megacities experiencing water insufficiency or conditions of drought.
     
    Given the advancement and developments of technology, how can we mitigate these negative trends by harnessing deep tech? What are the practical implementations of innovative solutions from the perspective of the city's management as well as end-users? And does sustainability always mean higher cost?
     
    We bring together cross-border and cross-sectoral collaboration projects between Singaporean and Polish water-tech companies that are harnessing the newest technologies to reach sustainability goals. In this panel discussion, we will highlight game-changing solutions in the fields of wastewater treatment, waste-to-energy plants, and utility management.

  • The Promise of Deep Tech: Smart Farming from Indoor to Ocean

    High tech farms have become the standard as farmers adopt techniques and technologies to improve farming outcomes. Yet, issues like high energy consumption for vertical farms and nutrients and effluent buildup in aquaculture translate to environmental concerns. To tackle these challenges, agencies, research institute, startups, industry corporates, and VCs have come together to build a vibrant inter-connected innovation ecosystem for sustainable farming.

  • Hydrogen for a Low-Carbon Future

    As Singapore plans to halve its peak greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, turning to hydrogen fuels is one option to achieve such a feat. While the nation has turned to solar power to reduce its carbon footprint, plans are underway in researching for effective use of hydrogen as an energy source.
     
    The International Energy Agency’s Future of Hydrogen report finds that clean hydrogen is currently enjoying unprecedented political and business momentum, with the number of policies and projects around the world expanding rapidly, particularly in transport, buildings and power generation. In Singapore, the government has set aside S$49 million to fund low-carbon energy research and test-bedding efforts in hydrogen and carbon capture utilisation and storage. At the Singapore International Energy Week 2020, Singapore’s Minister for Trade & Industry Chan Chun Sing remarked that “hydrogen has tremendous potential as yet another clean form of energy, if not, cleaner form of energy.”
     
    This session is intended to help us better understand the various applications using hydrogen as an alternative fuel source, with insights from industry pioneers as they discuss the importance of hydrogen in meeting Singapore’s and the world’s energy needs in the near future.

  • Plan.AI: Building Sustainable Cities with Technology and Design

    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.
