Singapore Academic Cybersecurity R&D
Harnessing R&D to Secure our Nation
Singapore’s National Research Foundation and UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) recently announced the results of a joint S$5.1 million research call in December 2015. The Singapore-UK collaboration will fund six new projects over the next three years, with UK and Singapore-based researchers working together to develop new solutions that will enhance resilience against cyber attacks.
The UK’s Cabinet Office and Singapore’s Cybersecurity Agency signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Cybersecurity during Prime Minister David Cameron’s visit to Singapore in July 2015. This Singapore-UK grant call has been welcomed by both governments and seeks to strengthen knowledge and capabilities in cybersecurity and foster closer collaboration in cybersecurity research between researchers of both countries.
22 proposals were received in total, and were evaluated by cybersecurity experts of both countries. The six awarded projects cover research in areas such as Intrusions, Data Analytics, Human Factors, and Sector and Applications.
