In a recent announcement, ETPL earmarked five innovation clusters. What are these clusters and how is ETPL planning to boost these clusters?
Essentially, we will look to build ecosystems around these areas (diagnostics, anti-microbials, bio-imaging, printed electronics and business analytics) by having teams of people focused on these thematic areas. We will still continue to work on other technologies. By clustering technologies thematically, we're able to bring together complementary skills and know-how, integrate capabilities and create synergy and efficiencies.
What are the future plans for ETPL?
ETPL's role includes being a catalyst for new jobs, transforming industry and giving Singapore businesses a competitive edge. The world beyond 2012 will rely increasingly on ecosystems of partnership for success. It is a world of collaborative business models in which marketing savvy and IP prowess go hand in hand. ETPL will continue to build on our results and partnerships to grow these ecosystems, not only in Singapore but also in the region.
