Curtin Singapore researchers
Curtin has become a leading institution for progressive research and collaboration. As we look to build on this momentum, we aim to strike a balance between demand-driven research, which solves defined problems for industry and society, and researcher-driven research, which is characterised by a desire to push the limits of understanding.
Curtin Singapore ASEAN Centre
The Curtin Singapore ASEAN Centre established in 2020 acts as an umbrella for research activities undertaken at Curtin Singapore including in conjunction with researchers at other Curtin Campuses and Curtin’s key strategic partners. Our focus is on building research networks with an emphasis on the UN Sustainable Development Goals to address key challenges in Singapore and the ASEAN Region. We have expertise in gender issues and equality, future of work, responsible leadership and governance, health and well-being and the circular economy.
Our research specialisations
Our strengths lie in a versatile ecosystem of academics with interest and experience, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) with a focus on developing solutions that will lead to sustainable futures. Our aim is for our research to address problems for society, industry, and business, as well as extending the realm of human knowledge and discovery which improves our understanding of ourselves and our ever-changing world. As such, our current research focuses on:
- Future of Work (for SDG Goal 8)
- Gender and Equality (for SDG Goal 5)
- Responsible Leadership (for SDG Goal 17)
- Corporate Governance (for SDG Goal 17)
- Health and Well-being (for SDG Goal 3)
- Responsible Consumption and the Circular Economy (for SDG Goal 12)
We invite you to leverage our experience, networks, facilities and research expertise as we work together to find innovative solutions and explore new possibilities.
