Lam Khin Yong: Inputs on Opportunities in Research, ISCN

  1. 1. Presented by: Professor Lam KhinYong Chief of Staff and Vice President (Research) Nanyang Technological University
  2. 2. * ISCN Now  Key conference and forum dedicated to supporting sustainability efforts in universities  Promotes the sharing of ideas and information for sustainable campuses  Seeks to integrate sustainability in research and teaching 2 ISCN Tomorrow?  Take action to facilitate active sharing and partnerships…
  3. 3. * “Next Steps” for ISCN in Research  Use ISCN as a forum to promote Triple Helix R&D partnerships  NTU Living Lab examples:  “NTU EcoCampus”  Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Singapore (“REIDS”)  Set up platform to promote Research Partnerships within ISCN member universities  Sharing research knowledge, results  Encourage research partnerships among ISCN members 3
  4. 4. University IndustryGovernment Triple Helix Collaboration: NTU in Singapore A strategic collaboration between University, Government and Industry Improves conditions for innovation and productivity in a knowledge society (Campbell,2005; Etzkowitz,2002; Leydesdorff,2003; Shapira,2002; Sutz,1998)
  5. 5. Creating a Knowledge Hub through International Networks
  6. 6. NTU’s Sustainability Research  NRF CREATE Research Programmes with Sustainability Focus (Partners include Technical University of Munich,ETH Zurich, MIT, Cambridge UnI , Peking Uni, UC Berkeley)  Nanyang Eco Campus  Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Singapore (REIDS)- Semakau
  7. 7. NRF CREATE Program Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise Funded by the Singapore National Research Foundation 15 Interdisciplinary research centres from 10 renowned universities Strong Industry Involvement Research programmes in Human Systems,Energy Systems,Environmental Systems and Urban Systems
  8. 8. Key Sustainability Collaborations TUM CREATE Research collaboration with Technical University Munich in Electromobility Recently unveiled the first electric car created by TUM CREATE researchers at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show 125 scientists and engineers,40 faculty members from TUM and NTU working in ten research areas BMW Future Mobility Lab BMW’s first university collaboration in Asia representing investment of $5.5 m over four years Research topics: Human Machine Interfaces, Advanced Battery Materials,Mobility Patterns and Concepts 6 Researchers (Funded by BMW), 10 PhDs and Masters and up to 25 undergraduate students
  9. 9. Key Sustainability Research Collaborations NTU, Hebrew University and Ben Gurion University Nanomaterials for energy & water management  apply tailored nanomaterials for improved energy harvesting & water management  develop scalable solutions for commercialisation Other Collaboration partners include Cambridge Centre for Carbon Reduction in ChemicalTechnology • Collaborative research centre, specialising in energy efficient,low-carbon chemical process technology • Minimise carbon footprint of industrial-scale chemical processes
