The research project is just one example of the "cross-cutting, interdisciplinary research going on at A*STAR," says Charles Zukoski, chair of A*STAR's Scientific Engineering Research Council (SERC).
Indeed, at a time when the term "interdisciplinary research" has become the mantra of good science policy, A*STAR is embracing the idea with gusto. Photo of Charles Zukoski Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Singapore Charles Zukoski, of A*STAR's Scientific Engineering Research Council (SERC) "It is the ability to focus and plan for the future," says Zukoski. Singapore has set up a mechanism to bring in talent from around the world and send local talent abroad to get educated, he explains. "We sit between universities and industries," Zukoski explains. Such expertise is normally scattered across research institutes, says Zukoski; Fusionopolis brings all that expertise together in one place. "There aren't models like this in the United States," says Zukoski, who was head of the Department of Chemical Engineering and vice chancellor of research at the University of Illinois until October 2008, when he moved to Singapore to head SERC. "One of the attractions here was to work under this type of system," he adds. Other scientists have been lured to A*STAR for similar reasons. "We are truly idea-limited, not money-limited," says Zukoski. "Here you have the capacity to do really bold things. The management's challenge is to get talented staff to think that way." Part of the solution, says Zukoski, is to reinvent management structure. Right now SERC leaders are spending a lot of time thinking through how the institute can best integrate research programs to foster collaboration and innovation, he says. Interdisciplinary research has been the focus of many universities. But the SERC model will be more efficient. Unlike universities that have a primary mission of educating, A*STAR's goal is economic. "In academia, we bemoan our lack of ability of do interdisciplinary research. But we certainly wouldn't consider changing the management structure of the university to enable interdisciplinary research," says Zukoski. "In SERC we are changing our structure.
