The Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City (SSGKC) Software Collaboration initiative was launched on 30 June 2011 by Singbridge and its joint venture partner Guangzhou Development District (GDD) – to achieve SSGKC’s vision to become a vibrant, unique, world-class city that is highly attractive to knowledge-intensive enterprises and talent.
The aim of the SSGKC software collaboration initiative is to share Singapore’s experiences in areas such as social development and city management. Through various projects, Singapore’s systems and processes will be adapted, optimized and integrated to meet the evolving needs of the SSGKC, Guangzhou and China.
To-date, many software collaboration projects have been launched or are in progress, such as IP Hub, Sino-Singapore Knowledge Forum, Social Management Collaboration, Thye Hua Kwan Integrated Family Services Centers, Development Program, Sino-Singapore Talent Development Platform, Sino-Singapore Youth Exchange Program. Progressively, more software collaboration projects will be introduced to meet the development needs of the Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City.
The software collaboration projects that integrate both Guangdong and Singapore software will provide experience for Sino-Singapore Guangzhou Knowledge City’s (SSGKC) development.
SSGKC will gather a group of well-know domestic and foreign intellectual property agencies, including the Guangdong State Intellectual Property Office, Guangdong Intellectual Property Office, Guangzhou Arbitration Commission and etc. Singapore’s Intellectual Property Academy and other foreign professional bodies will collaborate with SSGKC to provide international intellectual property rights services, including training, development of knowledge and capabilities in the protection, exploitation and the management of intellectual property.
