Singapore Continues to Attract Top Scientific TalentsSingapore | Posted on May 9th, 2007
Singapore continues to thrive as a vibrant location for scientific talent. Significant efforts and resources have been committed to attract and develop talent. Singapore adopts a pro-international and pro-local approach. A dynamic research environment, robust ethical framework, strict laws for the protection of intellectual property rights (Note 1) and quality of life, are some of the key reasons why a growing number of scientists are drawn to Singapore.
