Connected through the bridge of the Sino-Singapore Joint Research Institute, SCUT and its partners from Singapore will work closely on multiple scientific research missions, in particular concerning smart city technologies.
 
Chua Teng Hoe, Consul General of Singapore in Guangzhou, paid a visit to SCUT on April 19 to discuss strengthening cooperation with SCUT. He was received by Vice President Zhu Min at the Liwu Building of Science and Technology.
 
Zhu Min, after introducing SCUT’s progress in building the Sino-Singapore Joint Research Institute and the Guangzhou International Campus, put over that SCUT has stepped forward in urban-related research areas such as information security, urban planning, big data and driving security, which lay a foundation for the university to carry out joint projects with Singapore.
 
The rise of information and communication technologies has lifted “smart city” as an emerging urban development vision, and Singapore, according to Chua Teng Hoe, has marked smart city technologies as a key focus in the country’s scientific research agenda. He looked forward to seeing Singapore setting up collaboration with Guangdong province in this field.
 
Heads of SCUT’s Science and Technology Division, Office of Social Science Administration and International Office were also present on the meeting.
