The Cybersecurity Expert Mission travelled to Singapore in October 2019.

Innovate UK’s Global Missions Programme is one of its most important tools to support the UK’s Industrial Strategy’s ambition for the UK to be the international partner of choice for science and innovation. Global collaborations are crucial in meeting the Industrial Strategy’s Grand Challenges and will be further supported by the launch of a new International Research and Innovation Strategy.


The Global Expert Missions, led by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), play an important role in building strategic partnerships, providing deep insight into the opportunities for UK innovation and shaping future programmes.



Singapore has been experiencing an exponential growth in technology start-ups combined with innovation and digital transformation in its core industries. This phenomenon has led to cybersecurity becoming a national priority. The city-state has identified four pillars to innovation: digital economy, sustainable technology, defence and security, and education. The Expert Mission to Singapore in October 2019 aimed to better understand the cybersecurity landscape, the roles played by the various stakeholders within the local ecosystem (public and private), the key priorities and most importantly the opportunities and mechanisms for collaboration between Singapore and the UK.
