UK-Singapore Innovation Partnership Series - Smart Cities, Green Tech, and Circular Economy


The UK Department for International Trade (DIT), in collaboration with the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN) and Tech Nation, welcomes innovative UK tech companies in smart cities, green tech, and the circular economy to participate in a virtual trade mission to Singapore commencing 21 February 2022

About the Mission

The mission will include a two-hour webinar, plus further one-to-one meetings and introductions with Singaporean companies throughout the week, with the aim of fostering commercial and co-innovation partnerships between organisations in the UK and Singapore.

Why Consider Singapore

Singapore is ranked the smartest city in the world according to the IMD's Smart City Index in 2021. Over the next five years the new Research, Innovation and Enterprise budget of approximately £140bn will focus on four domains, namely: manufacturing, trade and connectivity (MTC), human health and potential (HHP), urban solutions and sustainability (USS), and finally, Smart Nation and digital economy (SNDE).

The UK Government has set aside £95m supporting enterprises in levelling up capabilities to address climate, economic, and resource resilience in order to support their net-zero emissions goals. This has opened up a number of opportunities for UK tech companies to share their expertise and collaborate with Singapore organisations in the sector.

  • Attend bespoke one-to-one meetings with Singapore government and Singapore based companies with business interest in the region
