  • Dec 2017 | Towards Smart Nation Singapore – Developments in 2017

The Government identified five national strategic projects: National Digital Identity (NID) framework, e-Payments, Smart Nation Sensor Platform, Smart Urban Mobility and Moments of Life. The Committee for Future Economy released its report in February.

Check out the report here.


The Smart Cities committee's first conference, "Wise Innovation: A Journey Toward Smart Society," took place on 7 October 2016 and brought together French companies and Singapore governmental agencies for a day of exchange on strategies and opportunities in innovation. Through a series of three discussion panels and in the presence of keynote speaker Navi Radjou, Silicon Valley-based Innovation Strategist and Guest-of-Honour Professor Low Teck Seng, CEO of National Research Foundation of Singapore, the conference explored what it means to be innovating 'wisely', and the areas and ways in which enriching French companies can be contributing to Singapore's Smart Nation vision.




The Urban​ Innovations portfolio is a project initiated by the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore, showcasing over 150 French smart city solutions awaiting to be pioneered, implemented and exported with Singapore. Through a novel collective creative process, the French team came up with three stories including multiple real-life examples that illustrate how these solutions could address the smart nationa priorities in Singapore from an end-user perspective. The launch, hosted by the French Ambassador at the French Residence, enabled members of the committee to meet, share and discuss their ideas and projects with Singapore governmental agencies.
