Industrial Internet-of-Things Innovation (I³) Programme

The Industrial Internet-of-Things Innovation (I³) programme is a new industry-driven initiative by the Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC) of A*STAR. Based on a contemporary business model of public-private partnership, I³ aims to accelerate and drive the adoption of Industrial Internet-of-Things (lloT) research into industry-ready solutions by bringing together best-in-class global and local companies and R&D minds in Singapore.


To accelerate and drive the adoption of IIoT solutions beyond the factory floor.


One-stop IIoT Innovation Centre for the Future of Manufacturing.

The I³ programme is a public-private-partnership established by A*STAR as part of the Future of Manufacturing Initiative to develop and accelerate the adoption of IoT technologies for advanced manufacturing sector and engineering sector. To complement existing A*STAR Model Factories, I³ focuses on developing smart integrated asset and product deployment solutions for real industry applications that extend beyond the factory floor.


The I³ programme operates as an industry-driven consortium by bringing together end users, solution providers and research performers to collaborate and translate existing technologies into end-to-end IIoT solutions, as well as co-develop new technologies with A*STAR Research Institutes (RIs) and Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs) in Singapore. SMEs and startups can also benefit from this open collaboration as they upgrade their capabilities and position themselves as solution providers to the end users in the consortium.

CONSORTIUM & Memorandum of understanding PARTNERS

The Consortium allows industry members to minimise their R&D risks through shared development resources; while at the same time, co-create market-ready IIoT solutions that are validated in simulated industry operating environments. Currently, a total of eight companies have joined the consortium. Several other companies are in the process of joining the consortium.
