familiar with technology.

"Like Imperial, NTU has strengths in engineering. In fact, unknown to many, NTU's College of Engineering is the largest in the world, with 16,000 students on one campus. The interface between medicine and engineering brings about exciting synergies, such as in biomedical engineering. The doctors of tomorrow have to be familiar with what technology can do and how it can help their patients because many developed countries, including Singapore, face the problems of an ageing population," said Professor Andersson.

No stranger to leading change within complex, global environments, the feisty professor was, prior to his appointment as NTU Provost, the Chief Executive of the European Science Foundation from 2004 to 2007 and Rector of Linkping University from 1999 to 2003. From 1989 to 1997, he was a member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry (serving as Chairman in 1997), and from 2000 to 2006, a member of the Nobel Foundation.

He looks forward to his new role as the President of NTU next year. Paying tribute to the current President, Dr Su Guaning, he said: "Guaning has set the university on an accelerated path since 2003 and my job is to continue to grow the university even further. We have enjoyed a fruitful relationship and worked well as a team.

NTU has just unveiled its five-year strategic blueprint which Professor Andersson will implement as the new president. Under this plan, the university will build Five Peaks of Excellence, in sustainability, healthcare, new media, innovation and as a knowledge hub of the best of the East and the West.

These peaks leverage the university's diverse strengths, particularly its longstanding expertise in engineering and business, and the interfaces these have with various disciplines such as with healthcare, science and the humanities.

"New knowledge is found in the interfaces between different disciplines. As education and research have a symbiotic
