Singapore Health Technologies Consortium

Singapore Health Technologies Consortium (HealthTEC) aims to bridge the gap between R&D in health technologies and eventual utility in the industry and bedside by providing a platform to promote interaction and collaboration between researchers from the institutes of higher learning (IHLs) and the industry. The Consortium also acts as a national resource in R&D and commercialisation by providing seed grants and facilitating licensing of locally developed technologies.

HealthTEC will be officially launched on 1st July 2019 at the NUS Engineering Auditorium (9 Engineering Drive 1, Singapore 117575).
