Presented by SGInnovate

According to the second State of Science Index survey conducted by global science firm 3M, 32% of Singaporeans polled did not pursue a career in science because they thought they were not smart enough while 38% of Singaporean parents polled confessed to discouraging their children in pursuing a STEM career. However, there seems to be a contradiction as at least 90% of Singaporeans polled believed that science is needed to solve the world's problems. Why is there this discrepancy between the belief in science to benefit our economy and society, and a lack of entrepreneurial STEM talents and encouragement to take the STEM route?

Join us as our panel discusses the impact of scientific research in our future economy, the journey to be a STEM scientist and talent, how scientific research could be brought from lab to market better, and what can be done to change mindsets in Singapore.
