Ripple advances in Singapore: Details
Ripple, together with the School of Computing Technology at the National University of Singapore (NUS Computing), has set up a financial technology laboratory. The goal of the laboratory, related to the Ripple UBRI University Initiative, is to train talent and develop the Singapore financial and technological sector. A joint project between Ripple and NUS Computing is expected to bring together academia and industry to develop talent in this sector.
The lab, supported by Ripple, is led by an industry team consisting of representatives from business and financial institutions, government agencies and designated teachers from NUS Computing. They will use their experience to work on promising projects in this area. In addition, Ripple-sponsored labs will train future business leaders, entrepreneurs, computer professionals, and developers of various innovations.
Students in this project will be able to show their new products, and industry players will learn how to make technological achievements not just interesting ideas, but what will be competitive. Ripple Senior Vice President Global Operations Eric van Miltenburg emphasized that the lab will prepare students for career opportunities brought about by the endless modernization of finance. A joint laboratory between Ripple and NUS Computing is also intended to facilitate understanding of the essence of such technologies. Digital transformation will be as accessible as possible for everyone.
In addition, the joint project of Ripple and NUS Computing should serve as a neutral space for scientific discussions and interesting innovations that will make it easy to put the educational programs of the university into practice. The laboratory will be open for participation from November 26, 2019. This is the latest development within the framework of an extremely wide partnership between NUS and the Ripple University initiative, which should become extremely successful and significant.
