Prof. Castro Neto, director of CA2DM, visited the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and the Bogoliubov Institute of Theoretical Physics, in Kiev, in March 2018, in order to establish scientific collaborations and recruit highly qualified Scientists for NUS. During this visit he met with distinguished Ukrainian Scientists such as Prof. Anton Naumovets, first Vice President of the academy. Continue Reading
Singapore, innovation nation.
Singapore raised 3 positions to the third position worldwide in the Bloomberg ranking in innovation thanks to its solid investment in science and technology, research and development. This result clearly shows that the government’s policies to create a truly smart nation is paying off. If this state of affairs is maintained it can lead eventually to a situation when Singapore’s high tech industrial park will drive the economy as a whole and add to Singapore’s traditional strength in commerce and trade, making it less vulnerable to fluctuations in the world economy with the creation of more highly skilled jobs with higher salaries and opportunities for its population.
