FIs and respective IAs
Research Centres for Clean Energy (ReCCE) FI (RIE2025)
The FI provides core fundings to the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore and Energy Research Institute @ NTU, which support the four supply switches for Power Sector Decarbonisation (viz. Solar, Regional Power Grids, Low-Carbon Alternatives, and Natural Gas).
LCER FI (RIE2020)
The Low-Carbon Energy Research (LCER) FI is a multi-agency initiative that funds research in decarbonisation technologies that support Singapore’s goal of getting to net zero by 2050. These include projects that can help Singapore import, handle, and utilise hydrogen and its carriers safety and at scale, in support of Singapore’s National Hydrogen Strategy
GBIC (and GBIC 2.0) (RIE2025)
Set up in 2014, the Green Buildings Innovation Cluster (GBIC) is an integrated research, development and demonstration (RD&D) programme that aims to accelerate the development and deployment of promising energy efficient technologies in buildings.
Built Environment Technology Alliance (BETA)
The Built Environment Technology Alliance, or BETA in short, is a collaborative Built Environment (BE) research and innovation platform that brings together stakeholders across the BE value chain to catalyse industry-led projects, co-create ideas and translate the results into economic value. Its aim is to draw in committed stakeholders who recognise the value of, and who are willing to invest in research and innovation to build new capabilities.
Cities of Tomorrow
The Cities of Tomorrow R&D Programme (CoT) is a multi-agency effort, led by MND, that recognises the challenges that cities face and seeks to leverage R&D to address the challenges. The vision of CoT is to establish Singapore as a highly liveable, sustainable and resilient city of the future, and as a vibrant urban solutions hub.
Air Quality Monitoring and Control (AQMC) FI
The Air Quality Monitoring and Control (AQMC) Funding Initiative (FI) supports basic and applied research in urban air quality. The objectives are to improve our understanding of Singapore’s ambient air pollutants and develop technological solutions to better monitor them.
Cooling Singapore 2.0 FI
Cooling Singapore is a multi-disciplinary research project dedicated to developing solutions to address the urban heat challenge in Singapore.
Singapore Food Story 1.0
Singapore Food Story R&D Programme, led by SFA, supports the national agenda of strengthening Singapore’s food security and building up our agri-food industry’s capability and capacity to sustainably produce 30% of our nutritional needs by 2030 (“30 by 30”).
Competitive Funding for Water Research
The Competitive Funding for Water Research (CWR) scheme funds basic/applied R&D projects that develop innovative and novel solutions for the water industry.
Living Lab (Water)
The Living Lab (Water) scheme aims to accelerate the commercialisation of new promising water technologies by incentivising their early adoption locally. Companies who are trying out new technologies can apply for the grant to defray their costs of demonstrating the new technology.
Water Centres of Excellence
The Water Centres of Excellence (CoE) Programme provides core funding to the Nanyang Environment & Water Research Institute (NEWRI) and Separation Technologies Applied Research and Translation (START) Centre, to develop and commercialise technologies that address Singapore’s water and environmental needs.
Closing the Resource Loop
The Closing the Resource Loop FI supports R&D on sustainable resource recovery solutions for key waste streams such as e-waste, plastics and food, and finding useful and safe applications for treated waste residues.
Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiative (SNRSI) Project
The Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiative (SNRSI) was established to concentrate expertise and knowledge in nuclear technology and safety in a single institute, and to sustain a critical mass of manpower engaged in a range of nuclear-related activities relevant to Singapore.
Marine Climate Change Science (MCCS) Programme
The Marine Climate Change Science (MCCS) programme aims to advance the core sciences of marine climate change, and develop solutions to help address the challenges faced by our coastal and marine environment arising from climate change, such as sea level rise, increasing sea surface temperatures, and extreme storm events.
Climate Impact Science Research Programme
The Climate Impact Science Research (CISR) Programme will utilise the latest climate projections to understand climate change impact in five key priority areas - sea level rise; water resource and flood management; biodiversity and food security; human health and energy, and cross-cutting research to help bridge science-policy translation.
