Singapore and Norway to collaborate on maritime R&D

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to renew their bilateral agreement on maritime Research and Development (R&D), education and training for another three years.

The first MoU between the two parties was signed in 2000, and has since been renewed in 2003, 2006 and 2009.

Since that first agreement, MPA and RCN have co-operated in research in areas such as the maritime environment, sustainable energy technology, offshore and marine engineering, and maritime operations and info-communications technology.

One of these research programmes is the collaboration between MPA and Det Norske Veritas' Clean Technology Centre (DNV CTC) for R&D on the maritime environment and clean technologies.

“An increasing number of Norwegian maritime companies have established their presence with headquarters for operation and strategic coordination in Singapore in the last few years,” said Arvid Hallen, RCN director general.

“Norwegian R&D institutes and universities see Singapore as a strong collaboration knowledge hub for the future development into the Asian market.”

“Research and innovation is global, and I believe that Norway and Singapore represent two of the most complete maritime clusters in the world - a good basis for joint collaboration.”
