Technology for Enterprise Capability Upgrading (T-UP) for local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

Technology for Enterprise Capability Upgrading (T-UP) was launched in August 2002 by five government agencies - A*STAR, EDB, IDA and Enterprise Singapore with the aim of helping Singapore enterprises upgrade their R&D capabilities through the secondment of experienced researchers from A*STAR Research Institutes. These researchers, with their expertise and access to state-of-the-art facilities in the A*STAR institutes, can help the Singapore enterprises identify, develop and implement leading-edge technologies that can reap commercial value. At the same time, they help to train and build up the R&D human capital in the industry.
