  • Analysis and reporting on research and technology developments in Singapore to inform UK government policy and to keep UK industries and academe abreast of developments in Singapore;

  • Raising awareness of UK S&I strengths, promoting the UK as modern, creative, successful and relevant;

  • Working closely with our UK Trade and Investment colleagues to promote inward investment and trade; and

  • Co-ordinating S&I activities regionally in partnership with UK missions across South East Asia

The office has arranged scientific workshops in many areas such as immunology, neuroscience, aquaculture and microelectronics to bring researchers together to explore potential collaborations. We also fund travel grants (Collaboration Development Awards) for researchers from South East Asia to visit the UK to develop collaborations further with the aim of proposals being drafted to submit to research funding bodies.
