Singapore opens Fusionopolis, its second major R&D hub in 5 years
Date:10/17/2008

e environment that I do not see anywhere else in the world."

Zukoski, a member of the prestigious U.S. based National Academy of Engineering, is the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's William and Janet Lycan Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

Anchoring the development is A*STAR's science and engineering research institutes with world-class capabilities in data storage, materials science, infocomm, microelectronics, chemical synthesis, high-performance computing and manufacturing technologies.

Two research institutes have moved into phase 1 of the development, and another four will move into Fusionopolis by 2011, whereby they will form multidisciplinary teams tackling research that require a unique melding of skills.

The researchers will be joined by at least 13 corporate laboratories, which are located at phase 1 of the development.

These include Vestas, the world's leading wind turbine company; Ubisoft, one of Europe's largest game publisher; Linden Lab, the creator of Second Life; and Nitto Denko, a premier electronics and advanced materials company.

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will also open its first overseas research centre at Fusionopolis. Called the Advanced Digital Sciences Centre, it is an extension of two of UIUC's most successful multidisciplinary, information technology focused research units, namely the Coordinated Science Laboratory and the Information Trust Institute.

Altogether, there will be 800 scientists, engineers and game developers in phase 1 of Fusionopolis. This number will increase to 2,400 by 2012 when phase 2 of the development is ready.

The Fusionopolis research community can draw on the biomedical research expertise at Biopolis, which is located just half a mile away and is home to A*STAR's 13 biomedical research institutes, consortia and centres.

A*STAR has been actively encouraging collab
