As Singapore continues to innovate and harness cutting-edge water and environment technologies, we play a key role in sharing water sustainability solutions. With Singapore’s water management experience and a vibrant local water industry, we welcome international collaborations to commercialise new products and solutions.
Research & Development
Spurred to transform Singapore into a Global Hydrohub with a thriving and vibrant research community, the Environment and Water Programme Office garnered funding of S$670 million to promote R&D in the water sector from the National Research Foundation. There are now over 180 water companies and more than 20 research centres in Singapore.
Singapore International Water Week
A major global platform for the sharing and co-creation of water solutions is at the
Singapore International Water Week (SIWW). As the host country, Singapore facilitated the stream of collaborations between various policy-makers, industry leaders, researchers and academia from over 100 countries as pivotal to growing our aspirations to be a Global Hydrohub. SIWW was held in conjunction with the World Cities Summit, CleanEnviro Summit Singapore, and The Water Expo.
