The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and NUS Enterprise, the entrepreneurial arm of the National University of Singapore, have launched the Smart Port Challenge (SPC) 2020. The project invites technology start-ups to submit proposals based on any of 17 innovation opportunities. Each project seeks to support Maritime Singapore’s long-term sustainability goals. The SPC aims to bridge opportunities in the maritime sector with innovative solutions that can be reimagined to accelerate digital transformation within the industry, especially in the context of COVID-19. Now in its fourth iteration, over 400 technology start-ups from Singapore, China, Japan, Denmark, Netherlands to US have participated in SPC to date, with 32 of them receiving grant funding of over S$1.5 million in total to develop and test-bed their solutions.
