New defence and security research office opens at NTU
The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) will team up with the Defence Ministry to open a new office specialising in defence and security research.
To be called the Office of Research and Technology in Defence and Security, it will oversee all defence-related research centres, as well as some 120 ongoing projects in NTU, totalling $130 million when it opens later this year.
Second Minister for Defence Chan Chun Sing noted the long cooperation between both parties and said he was pleased they were embarking on a new strategic thrust in defence and security research.
He was speaking at the 10th anniversary of Temasek Labs@NTU (TL@NTU), a joint research centre set up by NTU and Mindef in 2003.
