Singapore and Finland collaborate to fight COVID-19 digitally

A partnership between the national research and education networks of Singapore and Finland will strengthen the use of supercomputers to find treatments and monitor how the COVID-19 pandemic spreads.

“The crisis has underscored the importance of international cooperation in the fight against the virus across the world,” said Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Foreign Affairs, Singapore, at the announcement of a memorandum of understanding between SingAREN (the NREN of Singapore) and CSC (the NREN of Finland).

“The memorandum signals our intent to accelerate cross-border collaborations, which will benefit the research communities far beyond our shores,” Dr. Balakrishnan added.
