But it is not just about the technology. Singapore prides itself in developing some of the finest talents in the industry. We do not strive to be just a technology provider but a true partner to every country that we are in.
In Singapore, we are committed in developing the next generation of talents for the country. Through our strategic academic partnerships, we have established two research laboratories with the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). CINTRA, the joint CNRS International – NTU – Thales Research Alliance lab focuses on nanotechnologies while S4TIN (Smart Small Satellites – Thales In NTU) looks at new technologies that can be used in micro and nano-satellites.
Our Innovation Hub in Singapore also serves to bring some of the best minds together to enable cross-functional collaborations in co-designing, prototyping and testing new concepts across a wide range of industries. To bring some truly out-of-the-box ideas, we also partnered with Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) to attain fresh perspectives and grow a pool of design-conscious engineering talents in Singapore.
We are not just looking at future talents. We also recognise that the present workforce in Singapore have a key role to play in shaping the future. As the only Research & Technology (R&T) centre in Asia, we are not only able to facilitate the transfer of technical knowledge from Europe to Singapore, but also develop innovative prototypes and solutions from Singapore.
When it comes to fulfilling Singapore’s digitalization ambition, Thales will do whatever it takes.
