SDG 9: Innovation and Industry
To foster innovation and research excellence in audiology, Sivantos donated S$19.5 million towards establishing a postgraduate Audiology program at Singapore’s National University (NUS). The donation covers the first SMART classroom for Audiology in Southeast Asia.
In addition, it offers student sponsorships for tuition fees and monthly stipends. The program saw its first cohort in 2013 and aims to promote locally educated audiologists through incorporating local language specialties, translational research, and cultural intonations.
