Industry Alignment Fund (Industry Collaborative Projects)
The Industry Alignment Fund – Industry Collaboration Project (IAF-ICP) supports Public Research Performers in strategic R&D collaborations with industry. The aim is to foster industry-relevant public sector R&D efforts, and Public Research Performers to collaborate with industry, with a line of sight to potential economic outcomes.
Industry Alignment Fund (Pre-Positioning)
For the Human and Health Potential (HHP) domain, the HHP IAF-PP aims to develop industry-ready capabilities to deepen the alignment of public sector research, as well as multidisciplinary and integrated programmes with early industry involvement. Programmes are expected to lead to industry participation within 3-5 years.
Open Fund – Large Collaborative Grant (OF-LCG)
The OF-LCG aims to bring together the best teams from public institutions to advance human health and wellness, as well as create economic value for Singapore and Singaporeans, through the pursuit of excellence in research and its applications. The purpose of the OF-LCG scheme is to support patient-centric translational research, underpinned by basic and/or applied research.
Open Fund – Investigator Research Grant (OF-IRG)
The OF-IRG is provided to support the conduct of research proposals in basic, translational and clinical research that are relevant to human health and potential, including research that focuses on the causes, consequence diagnosis and treatment of human diseases.
Open Fund – Young Investigator Research Grant (OF-YIRG)
The OF-YIRG is a sub-category of the OF-IRG and a step for young investigators to compete for their first, independent national-level grant, and is provided to support the conduct of research proposals in basic, translational and clinical research that are relevant to the HHP domain.
National Precision Medicine (NPM)
This FI supports Phase 2 of Singapore’s 10-year NPM strategy which is centrally coordinated by Precision Health Research, Singapore (PRECISE). The aim of NPM is to transform healthcare in Singapore and improve patient outcomes through new insights into the Asian genome and data-driven healthcare solutions.
The Programme for Research in Epidemic Preparedness and REsponse (PREPARE) is a national programme set up by MOH to support and strengthen Singapore's key essential research capabilities, translational platforms, and expertise to develop tools, methods and products that can be tapped on to detect, respond to, and contain future infectious disease threats.
Singapore Translational Cancer Consortium (STCC)
The STCC was established as a nationally coordinated entity to synergise cancer research and translational capabilities across Singapore to enhance local research translation and innovation in cancer detection, treatment, and care delivery. STCC aims raise Singapore’s overall prominence, competitiveness, and healthcare impact regionally and globally in selected cancers.
Cardiovascular Disease National Collaborative Enterprise (CADENCE)
CADENCE was established to synergise cardiovascular disease (CVD) research across Singapore, overcome common system barriers to research and drive commercialisation. The long-term vision of CADENCE is to position Singapore as the leading Asian hub for cardiovascular data science research; high-impact multi-site early phase mechanistic cardiovascular clinical trials; and to develop state-of-the art behavioural interventions for primary prevention of CVD.
Human Potential (HP) Programme
The HP programme is newly established in RIE2025 to drive R&D and research translation activities that support improvements in health and well-being, productivity and learning capacity across the life course of Singaporeans. This is especially pertinent for a small country like Singapore, which relies greatly on human capital as one of our most valuable resources. Singapore is also increasingly facing challenges such as a low birth rate, rapidly ageing population and rising healthcare demands. The HP programme comprises 3 strategic focus areas as follow:
· Early Life – A*STAR
· Science of Learning - MOE
· Healthy and Meaningful Longevity - MOH
