Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE)

Arts Meet Science

  • Program Type

Campus for Research Excellence And Technological Enterprise (CREATE) is an international research campus and innovation hub. Home to a vibrant research community, CREATE hosts the National Research Foundation, interdisciplinary research centers from top universities.

CREATE Celebrates 10 Years of Research Excellence

The Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) celebrates its 10-year anniversary in 2017. Catch a glimpse of the fascinating research within this collaboratory, where researchers from the Singapore-ETH Centre work alongside researchers from renowned universities.

Design of CREATE

Pioneering environmental sustainability technologies in the tropics

CREATE will pioneer the use of environmental sustainability and energy-efficient technologies in buildings in the tropics. The laboratory core spaces and corridors will be located at the perimeter to introduce maximum daylight and reduce significantly the need for artificial lighting. The dependence on municipal water will be reduced by the collection, storage, treatment, and re-use of rainwater and greywater from showers and lavatories. The use of photovoltaic panels on the building is also being explored and provides an opportunity for the test-bedding of the latest solar technologies.

Strong interaction & collaboration

The campus will house a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary research community. CREATE will be designed to maximize the interaction among these diverse individuals.

Flexible Configuration

CREATE laboratories will be built with the flexibility to cater to the different needs of researchers. Laboratories would be reconfigured quickly in response to the dynamic requirements and varied needs of the research groups.

Magnet for global research talent

Through the presence of world-class research universities and research facilities, the proximity of the National University of Singapore, the Science Parks, and the One-North developments of Biopolis and Fusionopolis, CREATE will be a magnet for attracting scientific talent from all over the world.
