24 November 2021

Our world is facing many unprecedented challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic. These challenges are likely to persist and continue to test us as a community beyond the present crisis. Now, more than ever, the world needs innovative ideas to help shape a better future for humankind.

To answer these issues, the NUS Resilience and Growth (R&G) innovation challenge was launched. These opportunities allowed our graduating cohort to grow and future-proof themselves so that they are ready to seize new opportunities once the economy recovers.

Projects were funded in three categories: Make Our People Better, Make Our Society Better, and Make the World Better.

Make Our People Better 

How can we improve the quality of life for our people? This includes improving home-based learning, strengthening mental well-being, and finding ways to maximise human potential.


Make Our Society Better

How can we make our society more cohesive and purposeful? This includes fostering togetherness, reducing inequality, improving happiness, and giving society greater meaning and purpose.


Make the World Better

How can we make the world better? This includes mitigating the effects of climate change, enhancing food security, and ensuring post-COVID-19 safety. We will prioritise projects that address challenges that are of great relevance to Singapore and the world.
