Annex B 4.4: CSIRO A*STAR Research Collaboration

Area of Cooperation

Clean Energy, Decarbonisation and Technology


To collaborate under the CSIRO—A*STAR Master Research Collaboration Agreement 


This collaboration will be conducted pursuant to a Master Research Collaboration Agreement that has been negotiated between CSIRO and A*STAR Research Institutes (RIs).
CSIRO and A*STAR will work together to identify research projects within research fields of mutual interest.
The research projects are collaborations:

  1. involving four entities; one A*STAR RI, the CSIRO, and representatives from one Singapore-based and one Australian-based Industry Partner; and
  2. to further strengthen efforts in research and innovation between Singapore and Australia, starting with four thematic areas of common interest:
    1. Food (Alternative Proteins, Plant Genetics for Urban Food Production);
    2. Digital Environment (Urban Environment Management);
    3. Future of Materials in Advanced Manufacturing; and
    4. Circular Economy and Low Emission Technologies (Renewable energy, Biofuels, Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage).

For each research project, the participating entities will negotiate and conclude a Research Agreement.

Specific Objectives

  • Strengthen Singapore-Australia science, technology and innovation collaboration in fields of mutual interest relevant to the green economy.
  • Create opportunities to develop networks on priority areas that will enable our green transition.


5 years, unless sooner terminated in accordance with the Master Research Collaboration Agreement.

Governance process

In accordance with the Master Research Collaboration Agreement.
