Thales in­au­gu­rates in­no­va­tion hub in Sin­ga­pore


Thales, a global tech­nol­ogy leader in the Aero­space, Trans­porta­tion and De­fence & Se­cu­rity, of­fi­cially in­au­gu­rated the Thales In­no­va­tion Hub Sin­ga­pore, which rep­re­sents the group’s first mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary in­no­va­tion cen­tre out­side of Europe. The Thales team will en­gage cus­tomers in user cen­tred in­no­va­tion, co-de­sign­ing, pro­to­typ­ing and test­ing new ideas and con­cepts across do­mains rang­ing from de­fence, mar­itime se­cu­rity to aero­space, air traf­fic man­age­ment and smart ci­ties.

The in­no­va­tion team has been trained by the De­sign Think­ing and In­no­va­tion Academy from the De­sign Sin­ga­pore Coun­cil in or­der to ap­ply the con­cept of De­sign Think­ing in­no­va­tion, a new, goal-ori­ented, prob­lem solv­ing ap­proach de­vel­oped to look at all po­ten­tial al­ter­na­tives of a par­tic­u­lar de­sign prob­lem.

Thales has world-class cre­den­tials in re­search and tech­nol­ogy, and in­vests 20 per cent of its an­nual turnover in re­search and de­vel­op­ment. The Sin­ga­pore team will there­fore draw from con­sid­er­able global support, in­clud­ing ac­cess to the in­ter­nal net­work of de­sign prac­ti­tion­ers, a global group of ex­perts from across all Thales’ do­mains, which fosters cross-col­lab­o­ra­tion in or­der to fine-tune de­sign and in­no­va­tion. The team will be fur­ther strength­ened by the part­ner­ship forged with the Sin­ga­pore Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy and De­sign through col­lab­o­ra­tion and in­tern­ship agree­ments.
