24 Apr $63m programme to boost Singapore’s nuclear expertise

SINGAPORE is building up its expertise in nuclear safety, science and engineering, with a $63 million, five-year research and education programme.

The move, say experts, will help the nation keep on top of developments in the field, and what to do if a disaster should strike.

The new effort, announced yesterday by the National Research Foundation (NRF), comprises a Singapore Nuclear Research and Safety Initiative led by National University of Singapore physicist Lim Hock, and a Nuclear Education and Training Fund.

The fund will train undergraduates and graduate students, and support overseas attachments.

Commenting on the new effort, Singapore Institute of International Affairs executive director Nicholas Fang said: “This allows Singapore to keep its finger on the pulse of what’s happening in other countries in the region that are keen to develop nuclear energy capabilities.”
