Being a research-intensive university, one of SUTD’s key focuses is to embark on research endeavours to create useful innovations that can be adopted by the world
at large. 
SUTD and Zhejiang University of China (ZJU) Faculty members will jointly partake in research collaborations to address exciting challenges associated with the world today, in areas such as (but not limited to) Healthcare, Transportation, Clean Energy and Environment. Through such collaborations, the intellectual minds of both institutions can jointly advance research boundaries and frontiers driven by real-world challenges to ensure that innovations created would find relevance and adoption by the society.

The annual SUTD-ZJU Research Collaboration Grant call is held usually in the first half of the year, where faculty members can apply for grants for either one or both types of projects:

  • 1-year Pilot (Seed-Funded) Projects
  • 3-year Research Projects
