On 23 May 2018, NERI was honoured to host a visit by Mr Lim Kok Thai, CEO of Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA). The visit was deemed timely as one of NERI’s recent research initiatives is on Water, Energy and Food Nexus.
"Forced to find solutions to attain water independence, Singapore's willpower to overcome water shortage made it seek out technology to recycle wastewater for drinking. Key players share insights on how NEWater was created and how it opened doors to huge, unexpected economic opportunities."

The NEA-NERI workshop on air quality was held at the NUS U-Town on 13 November 2017. This workshop was jointly organized by the National Environment Agency (NEA), Singapore and NUS Environmental Research Institute (NERI). It features a broad spectrum of R&D related to urban air quality.
It was a fun afternoon for NERI staff to take a ‘shot’ at the Orchid Bowl, Chevrons. Away from the familiar research labs and workplaces, the staff and researchers gathered at the annual team bonding event for a game of bowling. Every year, NERI tries to organise an institute wide event to bring staff and researchers together to strengthen relationships.Over the years, apart from organising buffets where staff and researchers stuffed themselves with lots of food, the trend has now changed to do more healthy activities such as sports.
