Discover the innovations undergoing research, development and testing at these research centres



The Institute integrates research across NTU in the context of the energy challenge, and then helps translate outcomes into industry and practice. ERI@N's research focuses on a host of Interdisciplinary Research Programmes, Flagship Programmes, Consortium Platform and an Accelerator Programme that covers the energy value chain from generation to innovative end-use solutions, motivated by industrialisation and deployment.

Through industrial and CSR projects with commercial and social impact, NEWRI continuously strives to make a difference towards developing a true circular economy through efficient reuse innovations, and harnessing the value in waste. With ‘Research-Engineering-Deployment’ (RED) as its guiding philosophy, NEWRI bridges deep research with cutting-edge innovation, robust engineering coupled with industry-level translation, to field applications, piloting and deployment at full scale in real life settings.

FRESH: Future Ready Food Safety Hub

A national research & support platform under the Singapore Food Story R&D Programme. Jointly established by Singapore’s Agency for Science Technology & Research (A*STAR), the Singapore Food Agency (SFA) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the platform aims to build local food safety science and R&D capabilities to support Singapore’s goals of reaching 30% nutritional security locally by 2030.


Singapore CEA Alliance for Research in Circular Economy (SCARCE) 

A joint laboratory between NTU Singapore and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). The joint venture will synergize the expertise of researchers from Singapore and France to address the recycling and recovery of materials from electrical and electronic waste (e-waste), such as discarded lithium-ion batteries and printed circuit boards. In addition, the laboratory will explore advanced separation and extraction processes of e-waste which are less energy intensive and toxic as compared to current practices. The overall aim is to develop innovative and energy efficient solutions to recycle and recover e-waste.

Research - SCELSE

Singapore Centre for Environmental Life Sciences Engineering (SCELSE)

Hosted by NTU in partnership with NUS, SCELSE is linking new insights from the life sciences with expertise from the emerging technologies in engineering and natural sciences to understand, harness and control microbial biofilm communities and microbiomes. The exploratory power available to SCELSE researchers, from laboratory-scale to full-scale environmental, medical and engineered systems, combined with an unrivalled level of interdisciplinary expertise places SCELSE in a unique position, to deliver a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of a microbial system.
