A*STAR And Fujitsu Set Up First Centre Of Excellence To Build A Greener Singapore

6.    Both parties envisage that the collaboration will effectively address issues faced by modern cities in planning and implementing urban sustainability initiatives. The partnership will also unlock further economic opportunities through engendering key innovations for industry development and creating local employment opportunities.

7.    "This collaboration marks another milestone in our long-term partnership with Fujitsu and we are excited that they have taken this opportunity to expand their activities in Singapore. The joint investment in resources and sharing of know-how will focus on tackling deep and complex problems facing metropolitan areas and facilitate the development of new approaches in big data. It is highly anticipated that insights and outcomes derived from the research will drive further innovations and create prospects that may be applied to other big cities," said Professor Alfred Huan, Executive Director, IHPC.

8.    "By participating in building a smart city through the use of high-performance computing and big data, Fujitsu's goal is to develop new skills and practical experience, create the next generation of solutions, and establish new business models for global or ASEAN companies moving into Singapore," said  Mr Masahiko Yamada, President, Technical Computing Solutions Unit, Fujitsu Limited.

9.    Other partners in this COE include institutions and government agencies from both Singapore and Japan such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore's National Research Foundation (NRF) and Fujitsu Laboratories Limited, Fujitsu's research and development organisation. The partners will convene across a series of workshops, projected to start in April 2013, to identify the research themes to be jointly studied by the CoE.

10.    The CoE is expected to undertake projects by the end of this year through a team of engineers and researchers from Singapore and Japan.
