Alliance to End Plastic Waste (AEPW) Signing Ceremony
This partnership with Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore is one of the very first steps to leveraging the high-quality research and development ecosystem that is vital to our vision to end plastic waste.
Together with NTU, the AEPW has collectively pledged S$1.2 million to co-fund innovative research projects. This is the beginning of a momentum and expand our partnership with industry, government, research institutes and academia. It all starts with collaboration.
The NTU 2025 blueprint describes a whole-of-university framework where researchers from all disciplines and with aspirations spanning curiosity-driven questions to solving pressing technological and societal needs can find a space to contribute.
