“The School of Information Systems (SIS) at Singapore Management University (SMU) received three major grants to undertake Research, Development, and Deployment (RD &D) projects in support of Singapore’s national initiatives related to ageing in place, improving people and goods flow, reducing congestion in urban settings, and improving the security and trust of cyberspace. The total investment for these three projects comes to SD 36.5 million, with funding from a combination of Singapore government research support schemes as well as private sector sources.
Professor Steven Miller, Vice Provost (Research) and Dean of SIS, said “We are delighted to have secured these three new research grants to support Singapore’s national needs as well as regional and global urban needs. To reach final agreement on SD 36.5 million of R&D funding for a set of projects that are all highly integrated with Singapore’s national R&D needs was fantastic news for SMU.”
