These areas are significant sector of opportunity for research and innovation funding for UK universities with overseas campuses in Singapore, e.g. Newcastle University overseas campus (NUiS). The market failure is the lack of a joint-agency/mechanism (like what the EU has) between both countries that could facilitate the funding of research projects in these areas universities. There is little/no drive from UK government to leverage the presence of university researchers based at overseas campuses (i.e. Singapore) to supply their capacity to engage with Singapore researchers to apply and receive direct funding. Three practical projects/initiatives that could be driven by academia, backed by the relevant industry, that which could be unlocked by Government to Government action are in electromobility, Net Zero urban farming, water. The main barrier relates to access to research funding for researchers based at overseas campuses in Singapore. The Singapore-based researchers do not have direct access to research funding in Singapore and in the UK. When funding agencies in Singapore and in the UK publish grant calls, they usually have standard terms and conditions with eligibility restrictions. Where the overseas campus operate as a private business, e.g. Newcastle University overseas campus, funding for private sector organisations is set at a fraction of the grant budget that is submitted.
