IEEE Expands Operations in Singapore with a New Branch Office at Fusionopolis
1 November 2010 – IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional association, announced plans today to expand its operations in Singapore, with a relocation of its local branch office to Solaris@Fusionopolis, to be at the heart of Singapore’s science and engineering research. The move will enable IEEE to expand its services for the research and development (R&D) community, as well as provide greater support for its growing membership and activities in the Asia Pacific region. 3,100 of IEEE’s 400,000 members are based in Singapore.
IEEE is collaborating with the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore’s lead public research agency that is dedicated to fostering world-class scientific research in areas related to biomedical sciences, physical sciences and engineering; and the Singapore Economic Development Board, the lead government agency responsible for planning and executing strategies to enhance Singapore’s position as a global business center.
IEEE will use the office to facilitate future activities that will include the expansion of continuing education programs for members and the local technology community, roundtable workshops and seminars featuring industry leaders, as well as other technology themed events. Supporting this expansion are IEEE locations in Bangalore, India; Beijing, China; and Tokyo, Japan.
