SINGAPORE: The National Research Foundation (NRF) has awarded 12 projects grants of up to S$250,000 each under the proof-of-concept scheme. Seven of the projects are from Nanyang Technological University, four from the National University of Singapore and one came from the Institute of Mental Health. These projects include an interactive web-based game to help children and adolescents with anger problems and a super-capacitor that can store 100 times more energy than normal batteries for electric vehicles and consumer electronic devices. The winning projects were picked by an Expert Evaluation Panel comprising entrepreneurs, business people and venture capitalists who consider the commercial viability of the proposals in addition to their scientific merit. Together with these 12 projects, NRF has awarded a total of 63 projects under the proof-of-concept scheme since 2008.
