July 4, 2018
On June 5 and 6, RIKEN participated in the “innovfest unbound 2018” exhibition, an innovation festival which was said to be the largest in Southeast Asia and was held as part of the Smart Nation Innovations Week, at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in Singapore. RIKEN’s booth was part of the Japan Pavilion sponsored by Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO).
RIKEN’s booth highlighted RIKEN’s “Baton Zone” collaborative projects with industrial partners. One of the partners is euglena Co.,Ltd. which set up another booth next to RIKEN booth at this exhibition. During the two days, not only did we have researchers and personnel from Singapore and global companies visit our booth, but many representatives of Japanese companies located in Singapore came by. Many active discussions took place, including requests for information on collaborative research and technology transfer with RIKEN.
