Integrated Digital Product Centre

The Integrated Digital Product Centre aims to translate research outcomes by co-creating with the industry products and solutions that leverage digital technology research for commercial applications.  Through this process, it uplifts enterprises in their expertise and competency in digital technologies through capability development and knowledge transfer. It also strengthens linkages between R&D teams and the industry to enable better synergy between industry need and research priorities.

We adopt a product-centric approach to achieve successful translation of research outcomes. We conceptualize the products together with industry, taking into consideration market requirements, and then co-develop the products with industry and ensure integration and customization of the products to company’s needs.
