FRENCH LAB SINGAPORE
Aims to gather the academic and business research community in Singapore. FrenchLab Singapore purpose is to develop relations between the scientific community, promote French R&D initiatives and initiate Franco-Singaporean scientific cooperation’s. The exchanges are facilitated through meetings that bring together the members of the club and the local community.
2019 marks the 13th year of the annual call for projects for the Merlion Programme. Close to 200 bilateral collaboration projects have been funded since the Programme’s inception.
The PHC Merlion Programme is a Franco-Singaporean collaboration, managed by the Department for Culture, Education and Science of the French Embassy in Singapore, in partnership with Singaporean institutions. The objective of the programme is to develop scientific and technological exchanges of excellence between the laboratories of the two countries, by encouraging new cooperation and the participation of young researchers and PhD students.
The Merlion Programme takes three forms:
Funding of missions between France and Singapore for researchers,
post-doctoral and doctoral students involved in a joint research
project. The financial support of a Merlion project is done in two ways:
Up to €30,000 over two years
Merlion Workshop: The
workshop is to be jointly organised by both partners, the French and
Singapore institutions. The aim is to lead to an eventual bilateral
research agreement post workshop. The workshops could be held in either
France or Singapore.
Up to €20,000
Merlion Ph.D: This grant allows the PhD
student to spend up to 18 months over a period of 3 years in France,
subject to a maximum of 6 months in any given year. The student will receive:

SIgN was established in 2006 by the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) with the aim of expanding and strengthening immunology research in Singapore by making innovative discoveries to improve lives and further socio-economic growth.
SIgN is committed to translate research findings into clinical and commercial applications, in partnership with clinics and industry.
The visit will start with a seminar to introduce SIgN’s activities and researches leaded in the institute. Participants will then be invited to visit the technological platforms and one of its research lab working on dengue.
Date: Friday 28 August 2019
Venue: Singapore Immunology Network – 8a Biomedical Grove 138648 Singapore

The French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) strengthens its presence in Singapore by partnering the Campus for Research And Technological Enterprise (CREATE). CNRS@CREATE Ltd., which is CNRS’ first overseas subsidiary, will work with Singapore’s universities, research institutions, and CREATE’s international partners to conduct research and application of technologies in areas that are relevant to Singapore’s social and economic needs. Its inauguration takes place in the presence of CNRS Chairman and CEO Antoine Petit on 25 June.
With the success of its large scientific presence in Singapore1, the
CNRS established CNRS@CREATE Ltd. to manage new research and innovation
collaborations between the CNRS and Singapore. Dominique Baillargeat has
been appointed as Director for CNRS@CREATE Ltd., CNRS’ first overseas
CREATE was established by the National Research Foundation in 2006 to
increase the vibrancy and diversity of Singapore’s R&D ecosystem.
By bringing together international research talent to work on projects
of important scientific, societal and economic importance, CREATE
represents a unique model for research collaboration. Today, researchers
from 9 institutions – Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT),
University of California Berkeley (UCB), Cambridge University, ETH
Zurich, Technical University of Munich (TUM), Hebrew University of
Jerusalem (HUJ), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS),
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), and Shanghai Jiao
Tong University (SJTU) – are co-located in CREATE, and collaborate with
the National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological
University, Singapore on 14 interdisciplinary research programmes. The
CNRS is the first research-performing organization to join the CREATE
The CNRS aims to implement its first major research project by 2021. Between now and then, the CNRS is seeking to submit bilateral projects in fields such as energy, synthetic biology, and other topics.
The creation in Singapore of the CNRS’s first overseas subsidiary is also driven by a desire to transfer technologies. The research programmes of CNRS@CREATE Ltd. could be conducted in partnership with French industrial actors present in Singapore.
An agile and responsive interdisciplinary plan, CNRS@CREATE is at the heart of the CNRS’s new international strategy.
