IPI Chief Technology Officer, Dr Sze Tiam Lin, delivered a keynote speech on Creating Business Growth through Open Innovation at the BeNeLux Networking Event that brought together Singapore-based top executives from companies headquartered in Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

In today's increasingly competitive market and lean times where businesses are hard-pressed to accelerate the pace of innovation and time-to-market, Dr Sze shared that enterprises can benefit in many ways through Open Innovation — from tapping into partnerships with Singapore's vibrant innovation ecosystem and working with IPI to discover technology collaboration opportunities across different industries and technology domains. He encouraged the audience to leverage new ideas, technologies and talent from Singapore and address the growing opportunities in the nation and markets in Asia.

The BeNeLux Networking Event was organised by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), ADB-DutchCham (Dutch Chamber of Commerce Singapore) and the Belgium-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.
