Luxembourg and Singapore to Collaborate on 3D Printing

In November 2016, officials from Luxembourg and Singapore signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on research collaborations. Signed between the FNR and the National Research Foundation, Prime Minister’s Office, Singapore (NRF), the MoU sets out the joint-funding of collaborative research projects in areas of mutual interest. Jointly identified by FNR and NRF, priority will be given to research projects in material sciences, with a focus on composite materials and 3D printing, and in business analytics, with a focus on finance technologies.

First Joint Call Expected to Launch in 2017

FNR and NRF will take turns to organize the joint calls for collaborative research projects. The inaugural joint grant call, which will provide funding of up to SGD 1.25 million per project, is expected to be launched in the first half of 2017. Up to three projects may be supported for each call, and the projects will run for three years. Research projects selected for joint-funding should involve a high degree of cooperation and collaboration between both countries’ research teams in the planning, development and execution of the project.

“This collaboration provides a platform to bring together researchers from both Singapore and Luxembourg with deep expertise in material sciences and business analytics. They can collaborate to develop new technologies relevant to the needs of both countries. NRF is confident that our continued efforts to strengthen collaborations with top researchers overseas will contribute significantly to building Singapore’s technological capabilities and creating value for our economy and society”, said Professor Low Teck Seng, Chief Executive Officer, NRF.

Increased cooperation between Luxembourg and Singapore will allow both countries to build capabilities and develop both countries’ science and innovation talent pools. Specific research priorities were identified in areas where both countries have complementary capabilities and where the research outcomes were likely to create mutual benefits.
