Join us for a breakfast talk with Prof Tan Sze Wee, Executive Director, A*STAR Science and Engineering Research Council (SERC), to find out what the future of manufacturing entails and how your company can leverage digital manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing and robotics to move up the value chain.
Manufacturing is a major pillar of Singapore’s economy, contributing approximately 20% of the GDP. Today, our manufacturing sector has moved into high value added verticals, such as aerospace, oil & gas, and complex equipment manufacturing.
Together with other local public agencies, A*STAR started the Future of Manufacturing (FoM) initiative to support companies in Singapore to embrace advanced manufacturing capabilities.
