Reimagine Research

The objective of the Reimagine Research Initiative aims to provide seed funding for research in emerging areas post COVID-19, so as to reposition our researchers to capture opportunities in the post COVID-19 era.

Some examples are, but not limited to:

  • Environment and sensing for better safety and health
  • Outbreak preparedness and prediction
  • Food security and supply chain resilience
  • Human behaviours and societal impact, e.g. for policy making
  • Systems dynamics
  • Physical and IT security; data and its applications, e.g. data analytics with privacy protection

There are 2 types of awards:

  1. Category A

    • Proposals involving PIs from more than one Faculty.
    • Funding quantum: As a reference, up to the funding limit of a MOE Tier 1 grant, ie. $250K for STEM and $180K for non-STEM. directly proportional to the number of participating Faculties. To be co-funded by participating Faculties.
    • Submission is on rolling basis.

  2. Category B

    • Targeted proposals based on specific challenge statements. Details on specific challenge statements to be released when available.
    • Proposals involving PIs from more than one Faculty.
