Building on a successful collaboration in setting up the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, NTU and Imperial College London today signed a new strategic university-wide partnership to expand their scope of collaboration across research, education, and innovation and enterprise.
The two universities are establishing the NTU-Imperial Health, Sustainability and Technology Hub (NTU-Imperial Research Hub), which will focus on collaborative research in fields that tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges, such as AI and robotics for healthcare, energy and sustainability, and infectious disease modelling.
The new NTU-Imperial Research Hub builds on existing areas of collaboration, such as in joint education and research initiatives. The two universities continue to fund innovative education programmes and research projects that support early-stage collaboration among academics, researchers, and students.
The partnership was signed today on the NTU Smart Campus by the two universities’ presidents – Prof Subra Suresh and Prof Hugh Brady, who led a delegation of senior university representatives on his inaugural visit to NTU.
