NTU sets up centre on micro-organism research for environmental engineering and sustainability
Date:2/10/2010

  • The Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering established to be a world leading centre in biofilm research
  • This is the 5th Research Centre of Excellence (RCE) supported by NRF and MOE, bringing the total funding to S$750 million for 5 RCEs since 2007

1. The National Research Foundation (NRF) and the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced today the funding support for a Research Centre of Excellence (RCE) called the Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE) to be set up at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The RCE, with strong research collaboration with the National University of Singapore (NUS), is expected to be in operation by January 2011, and aims to become one of the world's top research centres in the emerging area of microbial biofilms within five years, conducting cutting edge research on microbial biofilm communities with the purpose of harnessing their powers for water and environmental sustainability.

2. A budget of S$750 million (S$500 million from NRF and S$250 million from MOE) had been set aside in 2007 to fund such RCEs. The SCELSE will receive S$120 million from this budget over 10 years. In addition, the NTU and NUS would provide contributions of S$62 million and S$24 million respectively to the Centre.

3. Dr Tony Tan, Chairman of NRF said: "Since its inception in 2006, the NRF has put in place major initiatives such as the RCE programme, to advance research, innovation and enterprise in Singapore. Research Centres of Excellence are long-term investments aimed at developing a virtuous cycle of research excellence in our universities that would attract research talent contributing to significant economic and societal impact. Led by world renowned experts in their fields, these RCEs are helping to catalyse the development of our local universities into research-intensive institutions with international standing. This will help establish
