Overview

The National Research Foundation (NRF) is calling for innovative ideas or proposed technological solutions from our Research Innovation & Enterprise (RIE) community, to enable Singapore and Singaporeans to adapt, and even thrive, in the “new COVID19 normal”.

There are no pre-defined themes or sectors identified for this Call-for-Ideas, but the problem statement being addressed should be clearly defined. The innovative ideas or proposed technological solutions could be drawn from any area of science and engineering, with multi-disciplinary approaches encouraged.

This Call-for-Ideas seeks to crowdsource innovative ideas from the RIE community, from which a few of the most promising ideas will be selected for further development.

Submission Process

Innovation and Enterprise Offices (IEOs) will assess and shortlist up to five of the most promising ideas received from their respective RIE communities, to be submitted to NRF using the template provided by 24 April 2020, 5pm.
