The second edition of the Singaporean Researchers Global Summit (SRGS) kicked off on Monday, 20 Sep, at NTU Singapore.
Due to the limitations brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is held in a hybrid (virtual and in-person) format. The inaugural session was organised by the National University of Singapore in 2019.
The SRGS is a platform to bring together Singapore Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) and to connect Singaporean researchers both home and abroad to exchange ideas and knowledge.
This year, the theme of SRGS 2021 is “Opportunities in Research, Innovation and Enterprise Plan (RIE) 2025”.
The RIE2025 is a government plan that seeks to build on the progress of previous national investments in the area, as science and technology (S&T) will be key to Singapore’s ability to meet future challenges and to respond to shifts in the global economy.
