Kent Ridge Park truly is the center of innovation in Singapore. Around and within it reside the impressive Singapore Science Park I & II and the National University of Singapore (NUS) Kent Ridge Park.

New minds, new technologies, innovations and transformation of the world we live in today and tomorrow's reality are constantly crafted here in a nurturing ecosystem of academia, research, business, government and of course people.

In the past few years, hundreds of millions of dollars in investment have gone into the scientific research, technology development and business creation ventures in the park resulting in a significant number of breakthroughs and successful stories.

TEDxKRP celebrates the spirit of innovation and change of the Park, its institution and people by showcasing current innovative initiatives in the Garag3 incubator, the different NUS faculties and special guests from the Science Park and from other parts of the world.

We embrace diversity, innovation and change, pushing towards development without forgetting our human nature and social responsibility. A special section on Social Innovation, Social Entrepreneurship and Relief efforts is part of our program.
