National University of Singapore (NUS) is collaborating with the People’s Government of Guangzhou Municipality and the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City Administration Committee (GKC) to establish the NUS Guangzhou Research Translation and Innovation Institute (NUSGRTII) in Guangzhou, China.

Located within Ascendas OneHub Guangzhou Knowledge City, and funded by the Guangzhou governments with support from local industry partners, the Institute leverages the strengths of the three parties to support the technology needs of Guangzhou city and China’s Greater Bay Area initiative.
NUSGRTII will collaborate in areas such as sustainable cities, smart societies, advanced manufacturing, infocomm technology and artificial intelligence (AI), and it is expected to be operational by the second half of 2020.
The new Institute will develop a platform for NUS’ research and development capabilities to address unmet Guangzhou industrial and market needs via technological innovations. Specifically, the new Institute will focus on research translation and the training of China talent over the next 10 years.
