About the grant
The SFS R&D Programme, led by Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), was initiated to support the national agenda of strengthening Singapore's food security and achieving our "30 by 30" goal, while reaping economic benefits. Through this initiative, there is a concerted push towards the development and use of productive, climate-resilient, innovative and sustainable technologies for agriculture and aquaculture, as well as new biotech-based foods and ingredients, underpinned by a robust future-ready food safety system.
Our heartiest congratulations to Prof Loo and Prof Tan!
