Opening Address

Keynote Presentations



Partnerships for Capability Transformation (PACT)

Administrated by SPRING Singapore, Partnerships for Capability Transformation (PACT) initiative works with Large Organisations (LO) to identify and implement collaborative projects between the LO and local SMEs. The types of partnerships include knowledge transfer from the LO to the SME, capability upgrading of LO's new or existing suppliers, and development & test-bedding of innovative solutions between LO and SME



Smart and Most importantly SECURED Nations or Cities (Concurrent Track)

Intelligent devices are anticipated to be deployed widely in our smart nation or other smart cities. These intelligent devices, known widely as Internet-of-Things, when not adequately protected can be attacked through the hardware, the wireless network, the operating systems and other devices or systems they are connected to. In mild cases, it would be just damages at the device level, while in serious cases it could cripple infrastructures or even endanger human safety. In this session, we will share some of these security challenges and also platforms/technologies to address them.


Europe - Singapore Partnership Opportunities (Concurrent Track)

Expand your Innovation and Business Reach Through the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN).

The EEN is the world's largest business and innovation support platform to promote two-way business partnership, technology transfer and research collaboration between SMEs in the European Union and the rest of the world. With the inauguration of EEN Singapore in April 2016, Singapore enterprises can now be connected to 600 EEN Partner organisations and millions of innovative SMEs from across 28 EU countries and over 30 non-EU countries.

EEN Partners from Europe will introduce innovation and business opportunities from their regions. Promising European SMEs with innovative technologies in nano-technology, ICT, Environment, Healthcare and Energy etc seeking Singapore partners to enter the South East Asia markets will be featured. Join us in this segment and network with the EEN Partners and discover the opportunities through the Enterprise Europe Network.
