A*STAR and Enterprise Singapore (ESG) co-organised SME Technology and Innovation Day 2018 to showcase various technology-related initiatives, and to encourage SMEs to adopt technology and innovation to develop new and differentiated products, services and processes, and improve productivity.
The event was graced by Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr Chan Chun Sing, who emphasised the importance of collaboration between the government, research institutions, SMEs, and other technology partners, to ensure that Singapore continues to stay ahead of the competition.
Minister Chan shared that more than 1,300 enterprises have seen an average of 25 per cent improvement in productivity since the adoption of over 50 ready-to-go technology solutions through Tech Depot, a centralised platform with technology solutions developed by A*STAR, Enterprise Singapore and the Infocomm Media Development Authority. He also gave out the T-Up Excellence awards, which recognise the R&D contributions of researchers to local SMEs.
