RIE Ecosystem

rie-ecosystem-2018-(web)

The Research, Innovation and Enterprise (RIE) ecosystem in Singapore comprises various ministries, R&D funding bodies and R&D performers. 

At the top is the Research, Innovation and Enterprise Council (RIEC), chaired by the Prime Minister, which oversees our long term strategy to transform Singapore into a knowledge-based society, with strong capabilities in research and technology. The RIEC is supported by the National Research Foundation (NRF) Board, which is responsible for the formulation of our 5-year plans and policies to grow Singapore’s research capability, support economic growth and meet Singapore’s future national challenges.
