Taiwan’s National Applied Research Labs (NAR Labs) and China Medical University Hospital (CMUH) have come together to establish a strategic partnership with the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster (NAMIC) in Singapore.
An international cooperation signing ceremony was held recently where the parties jointly announced that they will collaborate on a range of 3D printing initiatives focused on bio-medical applications. Singapore had announced plans in 2013 to invest S$500 million ($380 million) in 3D printing under a Future of Manufacturing scheme.
NAMIC is a national programme initiative in Singapore, led by NTUitive, the Innovation and Enterprise Company of Nanyang Technological University (NTU), to translate upstream 3D printing research in universities and Institute of Higher Learnings (IHLs) into downstream commercial applications, as well as lower barriers for companies to incorporate additive manufacturing technologies into their core businesses.
This initiative is in line with the Taiwan Government’s Southbound Policy which aims to enhance cooperation and exchanges between Taiwan and 18 countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia and Australasia.
