The Intimate connection
between science and society

Our mission at the Impact Centre is to accelerate and strengthen the connection between groundbreaking science, breakthrough technologies, useful products, and receptive markets.


We train new generations of scientists to look beyond their data and students to look beyond their classroom.


We create clusters of research faculty and innovative businesses looking for solutions to complex technical challenges and make new products.


We support those taking the leap into entrepreneurship. We measure and analyze the successes and failures of our programs.

“The most important connections we build are the ones between people willing and excited to make an impact.
I hope you will join us.”

Professor Cynthia Goh
