News & Events

Republic Polytechnic's Technology Day is an annual event much looked forward to by industry, government and the academia.

Over the past eight years, this annual technology showcase event attracted distinguished speakers from government, industry and academia, to share views, trends and knowledge with participants. Participants include industry decision makers, academia, government and researchers. The events also serve to foster new collaborations among participating organisations and Republic Polytechnic.

The theme for this year's technology day is "Productivity and Sustainability 360". Designed as a Technology Forum, it will explore the importance of innovative and sustainable productivity in three areas: food and nutrition; environmental technologies and; information and communication technologies. Encouraging the development of partnerships between industry players, business and education will again be a key goal of this year's event. Many distinguished high-level speakers will be sharing their knowledge and experience during this event.

The Technology Day will once again feature Technology Pavilions, which will showcase examples of how Republic Polytechnic collaborates with Industry, through the Innovation and Capability Voucher (ICV) Scheme, Technology Innovation Programme Expert Secondment Scheme (TIP-ESS), Joint Laboratories, etc. There will also be live, hands-on demonstrations of Republic Polytechnic's innovative technologies and processes relating to food and nutrition, environmental technologies, and information and communication technologies.

The tentative programme is shown below, and we expect to attract about 500 participants to the Forum. This event is an excellent platform for networking to create business opportunities for companies both large and small.

Please see below for some snapshots of last year's Technology Forum with the theme: "Open Innovation and Open Collaboration", which attracted over 450 industry partners, with more than 60 companies exhibiting. This year's Technology Day will be even more exciting!

We look forward to welcoming you at RP Technology Day 2013 on 2 October 2013. Click the registration button to sign up today!
