The GSK-Singapore Partnership for Green and Sustainable Manufacturing is a public-private partnership with the objectives of:
Enhancing Singapore’s capabilities to address the sustainable manufacturing challenges experienced by the pharmaceutical industry.
Strengthening the partnership between universities, research institutes and companies through interdisciplinary research in sustainability.
Developing innovative solutions in sustainability through interdisciplinary research to establish Singapore as a leader in sustainability for pharmaceutical and fine chemical manufacturing.
Since the official launch in January 2010, the partnership has had two calls for proposals that have awarded 22 grants in 7 research areas with a total investment of about S$13.5 million. It has also organized its first symposium for scientific exchange amongst the grantees and members of the Scientific Advisory Board, an Industrial Advisory Group and a Steering Team.
This article describes the development, scope, current progress and future outlook of this Partnership for Green and Sustainable Manufacturing.
