Built Environment Technology Alliance (BETA)

The Built Environment Technology Alliance, or BETA in short, is a programme office that works closely with government agencies, academia and industry stakeholders to co-create ideas, catalyse industry-led innovations for the built environment sector, and translate such innovations into economic value for both BE firms and Singapore.

Through the BETA Programme, we seek to enable a collaborative industry led by progressive alliances and supported by firms with specialised capabilities, in support of our industry transformation efforts for the Built Environment (BE) sector.

BE firms that are progressive and committed to work with their value-chain partners to pursue research and innovation endeavours may contact the officers below to kickstart such discussions, and explore suitable support.
