NTU Singapore Teams Up With PC Partner For Cleantech R&D
AsianScientist (Aug. 29, 2017) – Techbridge Ventures, a subsidiary of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has entered a collaboration with PC Partner, one of Hong Kong’s leading electronics manufacturers, to establish a new corporate incubator called InnoPartner Private Limited.
NTU is a leading global player in sustainability research and cleantech solutions.
The partnership between the two comes as Asia prepares to meet strong demand for cleantech products and services that can reduce pollution and conserve energy.
According to the Asian Development Bank Outlook 2016 report, Asia is home to 4.4 billion people.
The region therefore offers significant opportunity for companies that provide solutions to these environmental pressures.
Based at NTU Singapore, InnoPartner will identify, develop and commercialize promising technologies by tapping on the extensive intellectual property (IP) portfolio of Techbridge Ventures’ partners.
Also present at the signing ceremony were Mr. Ong Ye Kung, Singapore’s Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Mr. Ma Xingrui, Governor of Guangdong, who both co-chair the Singapore-Guangdong Collaboration Council.
“The joint venture will sharpen PC Partner’s competitive edge with access to innovative technologies and introduce PC Partner’s development expertise to Singapore.
This will not only boost the growth of Singapore’s dynamic cleantech sector, but also create new jobs and bring other economic benefits,” said Lim.
