Robotics & Automation (R&A)

BCA and IMDA have launched the Call for Proposals (CFP) for Integrated Robotics and Automation solutions for the BE sector on 9 Sep 2021 during the International Built Environment Week (IBEW) 2021: CEOs in Conversation.

The aim is for solution providers to step forward with readily available R&A solutions to be funded through IMDA’s Advanced Digital Solutions (ADS) support that can meet the requirements of (1) reduce reliance of foreign labour and increase productivity and (2) increase safety. Successful BE SMEs and larger enterprises will be provided with up to 70% funding support for qualifying costs to adopt these integrated solutions.
