How do tomorrow’s industrial spaces look like? What technologies will allow us to sustainably manage industrial facilities, reduce business and environmental costs, while maximising the comfort of occupants? Through this S$5,000,000 grant call, JTC aims to support the development of cost-effective and productive solutions to increase the efficiency of buildings.
JTC aims to identify technology owners and research institutions with innovative concepts, and co-fund applied research & development (R&D), test-bed and/or pilot demonstration in selected JTC developments. The intention is to crowdsource for effective solutions and deploy them in JTC’s existing and new developments.
Proposals submitted shall involve two (2) development phases to be completed within 24 months:
• Phase 1 is the applied Research and Development (R&D) phase, involving laboratory-scale testing on the feasibility of technologies. To be completed within a maximum of 12 months.
• Phase 2 is the test-bedding phase of the technologies and solutions at JTC’s sites, for demonstration and verification of these technologies/systems that are new to Singapore and require proof of feasibility in Singapore’s tropical climate. To be completed within a maximum of 12 months.
A total grant of up to S$5,000,000 is available.
Applicants may receive funding up to 100% of the eligible qualifying costs, subject to evaluation and qualification by JTC, and capped at S$500,000 per proposal. All final test-bedding phases must be conducted in Singapore. For international applicants without any presence in Singapore, please indicate your anticipated expenses in Singapore Dollars to conduct the final test-bed phase locally as part of the funding request in their proposal.
JTC reserves the right to select the proposals to be awarded the grant and close the grant call before the stipulated end date if sufficient proposals have been shortlisted. For the avoidance of doubt, JTC reserves the right not to award the grant to any proposal.
We welcome all enterprises and research institutions, both Singaporean and international enterprises and companies. Start-ups and incubators registered with local authorities in their respective countries are welcome to participate. Research institutions shall declare if the proposal has received funding from other sources.
