About Research Support Office

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) has in recent years grown rapidly in research funding, and now has some of the best laboratories and research centres in the world. NTU faculty has a host of opportunities for research funding in a vibrant multidisciplinary environment. To support and cultivate a culture of excellence in participating in competitive research grant calls and research grant management, the NTU Research Support Office (RSO) was set up with the purpose of facilitating and coordinating the numerous research programmes, initiatives and activities that are available locally and internationally.
