XLIM Research Institute and A*STAR’s Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC) embarks on four year partnership to optimise imaging technologies for medical diagnostics at the bedside

French research institute XLIM (UMR7252, CNRS/Université de Limoges) and the Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC), Agency for Science Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore, have signed a 4-year agreement for the creation of an International Research Project (IRP) on 21st October 2020. IRP is part of the toolkit proposed by CNRS for strengthening scientific cooperation with foreign partners. The IRP “FiberMed” (“Specialty optical fiber based biosensing for medical applications”) is an extension of the PICS (in french “Programme International de Coopération Scientifique” – international programme for scientific cooperation) project implemented by the two partners from 2016 to 2018 entitled “Bio-detection platforms based on special optical fibers for clinical diagnostics”, which was dedicated for the development of ultra-sensitive fiber-based Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) biosensing platform.

The FiberMed project aims for associating the complementary and multidisciplinary expertise of SBIC and XLIM, for developing new biosensing techniques and tool prototypes for medical diagnostics at the bedside. The originality of this project lies in exploiting the properties of functionalized special optical fibers to improve the performances of existing biosensing techniques or to develop new techniques. This project is based on XLIM’s expertise in the design and fabrication of novel specialty optical fibers, and on SBIC’s expertise in the development of bio-photonics based biosensing platforms for real-life medical applications with potential for industry tie up and commercialization.

The project is led by Dr Dinish U.S and Prof. Malini Olivo of SBIC Bio-optical Imaging Group and Dr Georges Humbert of XLIM Fiber Photonics team.

The Australian Space Agency’s Communications Technologies and Services Roadmap provides a 10 year plan to provide strategic direction to support the growth of the industry. It will secure the future of Australia’s space sector.
The advanced communications roadmap will:

  • inform and guide the pursuit of opportunities
  • identify necessary activities
  • determine supporting conditions

Advancing Space: Australian Civil Space Strategy 2019-2028, identifies the 7 National Civil Space Priority Areas.  Roadmaps align to each of these areas to:

  • describe a pathway to uplift capability
  • coordinate activities with industry, researchers and government agencies
  • encourage organisations to invest resources and efforts where they want to pursue the opportunities identified in the roadmaps

The Communications Technologies and Services Roadmap prioritises six focus segments. These are the areas of greatest opportunity for the Australian space sector. Focus segments highlight the potential to deliver advantage to Australia over the next decade.

  • Low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite services
  • Optical ground stations
  • Hybrid RF-optical
  • Reconfigurable networks, radios, modems and waveforms
  • Satellite communication network management tools
  • Quantum enabled communications

These areas interplay to provide a pathway to uplift capability to help triple the size of the Australian space sector by 2030.

Singapore will invest S$25 billion – or 1 per cent of its GDP – in research, innovation and enterprise for the next five years.

The Research, Innovation and Enterprise 2025 Plan (RIE2025), announced on Dec 11, includes a new national programme to prepare for future epidemics. RIE2025 will expand research and development in four domains – manufacturing, trade and connectivity; human health and potential; urban solutions and sustainability; and Smart Nation and digital economy. It will also support businesses in adopting science and technology, and expanding into adjacent areas with “high growth potential”. In addition, it will customise support according to different enterprise segments.

RIE2025 is the third such five-year plan, which has seen its budget go up progressively over the years. It was S$19 billion for RIE2020, while S$16 billion was set aside for RIE2015.

Within the RIE2025 budget, 15 per cent will be set aside for “White Space”, which will give the RIE domains flexibility to reallocate their budgets. Nearly 30 per cent of the new budget, or S$7.3 billion, will be set aside for universities and A*STAR research institutes, 26 per cent to support increased R&D into its four domains and 9 per cent will be set aside for talent development.

HUMAN HEALTH AND POTENTIAL

The Health and Biomedical Sciences domain will be expanded to include Human Potential, to tackle issues of an ageing population and low birth rate. Investments will also be made in research projects related to the health and well-being of seniors. In addition, the Government will develop a new National R&D Programme for Epidemic Preparedness and Response (PREPARE) to prepare for future pandemics.

URBAN SOLUTIONS AND SUSTAINABILITY

The Government seeks to better integrate urban solutions and sustainability, and pursue the latter in a “broader way”. RIE2025 will make the built environment more efficient and sustainable by adopting robotics and automation and 3D concrete printing. It will look into decarbonising Singapore’s power, industry and transport sectors by exploring low carbon technologies. In addition, the Government is “taking climate change seriously”. “committing to reduce its carbon footprint, to fulfil the pledge made under the Paris accord and protect the country from rising sea levels.” It will also strengthen food resilience and preserve Singapore’s biodiversity.

MANUFACTURING, TRADE AND CONNECTIVITY

As part of the Government’s boost for manufacturing, it is looking at the “next generation of transport solutions” that will strengthen Singapore’s air and maritime connectivity to the world. As such, the Government is looking into improving the resilience of Singapore’s supply chain, from food to intermediate industrial products.

SMART NATION AND DIGITAL ECONOMY

RIE2025 will accelerate the development, translation and adoption of “key technology areas” like AI, cybersecurity, trust technologies, communications and connectivity and quantum computing. This will include investments in communications technologies R&D, focusing on 5G and future communications technologies, and drive a nationnwide AI model-building and adoption.
