The Industry Alignment Fund – Industry Collaboration Project (IAF-ICP) from the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) promotes public sector research and development (R&D) initiatives that are relevant to industry and encourages collaboration between public research entities and industry, with a focus on potential economic impact. Potential projects should:

  • Have the potential to generate product or process innovations for the industry player(s) involved (i.e., improved processes or products);
  • Have the potential to generate higher economic or R&D activity for industry player(s) involved (e.g., through the creation of R&D jobs, increased market share, reduced costs, and improved productivity);
  • Have the potential to deepen tech or people capabilities in locally based companies (e.g., through upskilling, enhanced training, and development of new IPs);
  • Have the ability to uplift the ecosystem (e.g., by fostering collaborations with other locally based enterprises such as suppliers);
  • Consider the level of the industry partner’s commitment to research and innovation in Singapore; and
  • Consider other relevant factors.

Lead Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-Investigators (Co-Is) must be employed by a Public Research Institution. All applications should be submitted by the Public Research Institutions.

Proposals seeking up to 25 million SGD (inclusive of overheads) will go through a one-stage Full Proposal evaluation process. Proposals seeking more than 25 million SGD (inclusive of overheads) will have to go through a two-stage process (LOI and Full Proposal).

Typically, IAF-ICP projects should not extend beyond 36 months, but exceptions may allow for extended durations in Corporate Laboratories. Applications are assessed throughout the year.
