SINGAPORE: Consumer products maker, Procter and Gamble (P&G), has begun construction of a S$250 million innovation centre at the Biopolis. The US-based firm said the centre will develop designed-in-Singapore products for regional and global markets. The centre, which is slated for completion in 2013, will become the largest private tenant at the Biopolis, taking up some 32,000 square metres of floor space. P&G also said it will continue to expand its existing research collaborations in Singapore, including its Master Research Collaboration Agreement signed recently with A*STAR. It also recently announced early phase research on product design and development for senior consumers (those aged 50 and above) in Asia in collaboration with the University of Cincinnati and the Singapore Polytechnic.
