Aligned with Singapore’s Research, Innovation, Enterprise 2025 plan, RP focuses our applied Research & Development (R&D) activities in three key clusters - Health & Wellness, Agri-Food Innovation, and Supply Chain Management.
The cluster focuses our R&D in pandemic and environmental control, preventive and community health, and digital health.
The cluster specialises in “Farm to Table” technologies, specifically in the areas of crop quality, farm productivity, smart farming, alternate proteins, and sustainable agriculture.
The cluster focuses our R&D in logistics and supply chain management-related activities and works with companies to identify how they can improve their deployment their resources, business processes and technology adoption.
Draw on the expertise of our R&D staff from a diverse range of industries and domains to develop solutions for your businesses.
Gain access to innovative solutions and technologies that can help your business grow.
RP collaborated with Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) to study the possibility of using black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) to sustainably manage carnivore faecal waste.
RP developed an algorithm that can be incorporated into wireless stress monitoring systems to reduce the risk of heart attacks and cardiovascular diseases. This technology was commercialised to KaHa Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based technology company and incorporated into their new product line.
RP actively collaborates with our industry partners to apply for competitive R&D grants. We have recently received project funding from MOE Translational R&D and Innovation Fund (MOE-TIF) and Singapore Food Story (SFS) R&D Grant.
Smart Cooling Surface Solution
The project aims to formulate and produce stabilised hybrid nanofiller dispersions to be used in the development of an anti-heat coating for the passive cooling of automotive vehicles. This will serve as a platform technology for other applications such as cooling of commercial buildings, data centres, solar panels and greenhouses, as well as electric vehicles and trains. Key collaborators are Evonik (South East Asia) Pte Ltd and Artdeshine Pte Ltd.
Cost Effective Durable Antimicrobial Film with Multiple Antimicrobial Surface Strategies
The project aims to develop a flexible antimicrobial film with enhanced antimicrobial performance, improved durability and self-cleaning capability. Effective use of the antimicrobial film will help to mitigate surface transmission and potentially air-borne transmission. Key collaborators are Three Summit Ventures Pte Ltd and Tobe Packaging Industries Pte Ltd.
RP, together with James Cook University, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and A*STAR, has secured a total of four projects from the Singapore Food Story (SFS) research & development grant. This grant was initiated to support the national agenda of strengthening Singapore's food security and achieving our "30 by 30" goal, while reaping economic benefits. Through this initiative, there is a concerted push towards the development and use of innovative, climate-resilient, and sustainable technologies for agriculture and aquaculture, as well as new biotech-based foods and ingredients.
For example in our project “Alternative culture media components for fish-derived fat cells" with A*STAR (Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology) and NTU, we are developing alternative culture media components for cell-based meat. Cell-based meat is future solution for environment-friendly and pathogen-controllable food source. This project aims to develop alternative media components for the differentiation of fish adipocytes.
