International collaboration is an important element of the educational development of the School of Applied Science (ASC). We have always been proactive in seeking collaboration with business and industry beyond Singapore, as we recognise the importance of international engagement to our continuing scientific and academic excellence.
We recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with AASTAR PTE LTD, a trading company of food and health supplements with its headquarters in Vietnam. The areas of collaboration cover agrotechnology, aquaculture, and complementary health products.
Both ASC and Aastar will embark on activities in the areas of research & development, material analysis, product testing and development, and test bedding for agrotechnology and aquaculture. Other areas of collaboration include joint labs, conferences, workshops, curriculum development, events consultancy, student internship, and continuing education opportunities.
This new partnership is set to deliver positive far-reaching outcomes for all our stakeholders as well as industry.
