BRINGING INNOVATIVE
IDEAS TO LIFE

National Initiatives

Capitalising on NTU’s reputation as a leader in the fields of membrane technologies, additive manufacturing and photonics, we have been selected to manage two national innovation clusters and a consortium in these areas.

The three national initiatives are: 

National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC)

The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) is part of the Innovation Cluster Program (ICP) led by NTUitive, supported by the National Research Foundation and in partnership with the SPRING Singapore and Economic Development Board of Singapore. NAMIC aims to increase Singapore’s adoption of additive manufacturing technologies to enhance competitiveness in the rapidly evolving landscape of digital industrialisation. This is accomplished by nurturing promising AM technologies and start-ups, as well as accelerating translation R&D with a focus on commercial applications. NAMIC also assist companies seeking capital injection either through project joint-funding or leveraging on its investor networks.

Separation Technologies Applied Research and Translation (START) Centre

The Separation Technologies Applied Research and Translation (START) Centre is also a part of the Innovation Cluster Program (ICP) led by NTUitive, supported by the National Research Foundation and in partnership with the SPRING Singapore and Economic Development Board of Singapore.  START is set up as a national-level facility to bridge the translation gap between laboratory processes, results and testing, and full-scale final product. START aims to provide significant risk mitigation for the commercialisation of materials, equipment and processes related to separation technologies.

LUX Photonics Consortium

LUX Photonics Consortium is an initiative by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and National University of Singapore (NUS); and is supported by the National Research Foundation. The Consortium serves as a catalyst and a networking platform to translate cutting-edge research in photonics into diverse applications underpinned by the value chain created. It aims to be a platform for the global photonics industry, to leverage photonics research and resources in Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) for industry and to create synergy to develop ground breaking light-enabled technologies.
