Funded by the National Research Foundation and the Ministry of National Development, these studies examine the opportunities and challenges for Singapore over the next twenty-five years in seven areas:

Future of Cities Phase I

  • Sustainable Futures
  • Data Economy
  • Future Urban Typologies for Enhancing Liveability in Singapore
  • Future Society – Imagining the New Diversity (funded by National Population and Talent Division)
  • Future Economy
  • Data Economy
  • Future Transportation
  • Living with Technology – Future of Work, Education, and Healthcare

Future of Cities Phase II

  • Future Digital Economies and Societies (builds on Living with Technology work)

These projects are designed to contribute to a deeper understanding of Singapore’s economy and society, how Singapore can tackle technology disruption and transformation, and how Singapore can continue to be liveable and sustainable.
