Singapore, UK collaborate on research against cyber threats
In a joint press release, UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the National Research Foundation of Singapore said a joint £2.4 million (S$5.1 million) research grant will fund these projects over the next three years.
A grant call was first launched in May this year, seeking to "strengthen knowledge and capabilities in cyber security and foster closer collaboration in cybersecurity research between the two countries' researchers", said the agencies. It closed in July with 22 proposals, which were evaluated by cybersecurity experts from both Singapore and UK.
The six selected projects will involve universities from both countries working in research on areas including security and privacy in smart grid systems and cybersecurity solutions for smart traffic control. ■
