TusStar partners with NUS to boost tech innovation
TusStar, the chain of science parks affiliated to Tsinghua Holdings' subsidiary Tus-Holdings, signed a cooperation agreement with the National University of Singapore on Feb 26, 2017. The world-leading incubator network now has partners in ten different countries.
The deal, signed by TusStar President Zhang Jinsheng and Ong Choon Nam, director of NUS' environmental research institute, at TusStar's Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city, will see the two parties deepen exchanges and collaboration on research, start-up incubation and investment.

TusStar has been developing closer relations with Singapore since establishing a start-up incubator in the Sino-Singapore Tianjin Eco-city, a huge project co-developed by the governments of China and Singapore located in North China's Tianjin municipality, in 2015. The 2,000-square-meter center nurtures Chinese and Singaporean tech start-ups, with a focus on the culture, energy efficiency, environmental protection, intelligent manufacturing and smart city sectors.
The science park specialist will now work with NUS, the top Singapore university to turn its world-leading research into industry-leading companies.
The cooperation will enable NUS to benefit from TusStar's global innovation network, which already includes centers in US, Canada, Switzerland, Germany and Australia.
