As the world becomes more digitally connected, the need to protect the digital space becomes more critical. To do this, the need to increase talent pipelines in cybersecurity and digital trust becomes key. The Mastercard-NTU Joint lab thus plays a key role in contributing to talent development efforts for Singapore and the region. The joint lab will also undertake joint research into new spaces such as Trusted AI.

Mr Rajat Maheshwari, Vice President of Cyber & Intelligence (AP), Mastercard

At Schaeffler, we have defined innovation clusters that serve as the basis for offering innovative and sustainable future-oriented technology in growth markets. Our collaboration with NTU is part of our successful global SHARE (Schaeffler Hub for Advanced REsearch) program, which provides a bridge between academia and our employees to have intensive exchanges and close cooperation in strategic projects. This leads to new technologies and insights that enable the transition towards a sustainable and digitised future.

Mr Uwe Wagner, Chief Technology Officer of Schaeffler AG
