The Consortium Management Office (CMO) is a National Platform that works across institutions and was jointly established in October 2020 by NRF and A*STAR Innovation & Enterprise (I&E). The CMO is a National Coordinating Office for all the Technology Consortia and functions as a centralised management office to provide oversight to develop professionally run Tech Consortia and facilitate broader ecosystem access to consortia capabilities.
With central oversight of all Technology Consortia, the CMO would have the opportunity to:
- Enhance consortia linkages to other ecosystem stakeholders, funding schemes, and national platforms,
- Serve as a landing pad for local and international partners to engage with the activities of the consortia, and
- Harness cross consortia synergies (community building; events, project collaborations) of all current, and future Technology Consortia
