Singapore – ranked first in the IMD Smart City Index 2020* and continues to be a global leader when measuring the most innovative economy, infrastructure, healthcare, personal and digital security. As rapid digitalisation transforms the way we live, work and play – Singapore launched its Smart Nation initiative in 2014 to enable a culture of digital innovation and experimentation to make citizens’ lives better, create opportunities for businesses, and build a better home and community through technology. The constant lookout for advanced technologies makes it possible for Nordic companies to accelerate and scale their smart cities solutions in Singapore’s vibrant urban landscape.
In 2021, the Nordic Innovation House Singapore (NIH-SG) theme on Smart Cities aims to support these initiatives and provide Nordic companies with an opportunity to expand their foothold in Singapore and Southeast Asia. NIH-SG shares the mission to bridge Nordic Smart Cities related delegations with its core partners from Business Sweden, Innovation Norway, Embassy of Finland, Business Iceland and Embassy of Denmark in Singapore.
On 22 November 2021, Ms. Wai Yeng Chan - External Expert of South-East Asia IP SME Helpdesk and Head, IP Strategy of Taylor Vinters Via LLC, will attend and deliver an IP Presentation focusing on “Intellectual Property Protection in the Smart Cities Sector in Singapore” from 7.30 - 8.30 (CEST)/ 14.30 - 15.30 (Singapore Time).
