SINGAPORE (Sept 25): Japan-listed NEC Corporation today announced the opening of the NEC Open Innovation Centre (OIC) in Singapore.

This forms a part of the wider NEC Innovation ecosystem and reaffirms the company’s commitment to foster open innovation and partnerships with private and public sectors.

Located in Biopolis, the OIC is supported by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) and is part of NEC’s $100 million investment over the five years from 2017 in research and innovation in the Asia Pacific region.

Operated by the Global Safety Division, the centre is NEC’s first of its kind facility outside of Japan that infuses NEC technology and a deep partner ecosystem to offer solutions in areas such as public safety, transportation and aviation.

The centre houses various revolutionary thematic zones which allow an immersive experience in AI and biometric solutions within the context of daily life, allowing solutions to be translated into realistic and relatable use cases.

NEC is also at the forefront of advanced ICT solutions for safety, security and efficiency in air travel. Its One ID-Single token technology provides integrated identity management across the travel process that allows passengers to authenticate their identity online or in person for all stakeholders, ensuring an efficient flow within the airport.

Lily Phua, director of new businesses, EDB, says, “Singapore’s strong base of enterprises, partners and digital talent offer NEC an ideal location to forge collaborations and translate its strong biometric identification technology into new applications for public safety and commercial domains for Singapore and beyond.”
