Innovation centre planned as Singapore strikes five-year deal

Procter & Gamble, a multinational manufacturer, has agreed to a five-year research partnership with A*Star, Singapore’s agency for science, technology and research.

The partnership will be one of the company’s largest collaborations with a public institution, and will involve Singapore’s network of 25 research and medical institutes and universities, including research hubs Biopolis and Fusionopolis. P&G is planning to open a Singapore Innovation Centre at Biopolis, a biomedical research complex established 10 years ago near the National University of Singapore.

Up to S$60 million (US$47.4m) in joint research funding will be available for the partnership, which expands on an existing agreement, established in 2010, between P&G and A*Star. Some of the funding will be used to support joint PhD programmes and postdoctoral fellowships.
