JCU新加坡与多机构合作,共筑新加坡水产养殖业未来

今年年初,新加坡发布了全民瞩目的 2019 财政预算案,这是政府新一年甚至更长期的工作重点和计划。在这样一个可以说定调基本国策的预算案中,水产养殖这个看似冷门的专业被点名表扬

根据农业食品和兽医局 AVA 提供的数据,新加坡虽然三面环海,但是只有 9% 的鱼类是在新加坡养殖的,其余的 91% 全部靠进口。新加坡政府将在农业与食物生产行业转型方面投资,重点关注水产养殖。

詹姆斯库克大学在为新加坡水产养殖的研究与创新中扮演了重要角色,我们通过以下两则快讯了解一下。

01

大学支持启动水产养殖创新中心

水产养殖创新中心 (Aquaculture Innovation Centre,简称 AIC ) 将通过研发以及共同创新的合作伙伴关系,为新加坡不断发展的水产养殖业助力。

2019 年 6 月 26 日,AIC 在淡马锡理工学院揭幕。该设施是第一个通过联合模式将不同合作伙伴 (高等院校和政府机构) 的丰富知识和经验汇集在一起的创新中心,这将使新加坡的水产养殖业受益。詹姆斯库克大学新加坡校区很自豪的成为了支持该中心的一支重要力量。其他合作伙伴包括淡马锡理工学院、南洋理工学院、义安理工学院、共和理工学院、新加坡国立大学、南洋理工大学、新加坡科技研究局 (A*STAR) 以及新加坡食品局。

新加坡企业发展局副执行长 Ted Tan 表示,“就个人而言,水产养殖创新中心的各位合作伙伴们已经在提升中小企业在该领域的能力方面做得很好。现在通过将它们结合在一起,它们可以利用互补优势加速可持续水产养殖解决方案的开发,为国内和出口市场提供服务。AIC 的成立证明我们致力于使新加坡成为水产养殖中心。”

鉴于詹姆斯库克大学在水产养殖研发、培训和咨询服务方面的优势得到全球认可,这一机会将使大学能够分享在水产养殖领域的专业知识,同时也能借助合作伙伴们的资源对新加坡的整个水产养殖业进行提升。詹姆斯库克大学新加坡校区研究院院长 Professor Dean Jerry 讲道,“大学通过近期成立的热带未来研究所,正在与水产养殖业和其他研发提供商合作,从而帮助新加坡实现粮食安全战略,并创造新的技术和知识,促成下一代水产养殖创新。我们致力于与所有相关方合作,来帮助新加坡成为在创新领域位于最前沿的水产养殖技术中心,而 AIC 就是我们实现这一目标的工具。”

除了推动研发和达成共同创新的合作伙伴关系之外,AIC 还将在以下三个关键领域提供培训和发展机会:

营养、饲料、添加剂和饲养管理:提高对不同鱼类和相应生长阶段的营养需求的知识基础。

健康和疾病管理:为适当的水产养殖抗生素和疫苗提供指导。

遗传、育种和种子生产:增加优质种鱼 (用于育种的成熟鱼类) 和种畜的国内供应。

此外,AIC 旨在通过产品测试、认证和质量标准开发来提高行业标准。下一代新加坡水产养殖人才可能来自 AIC 提供的培训,其中包括会议、研讨会和联合研发工作。

James Cook University supports launch of Aquaculture Innovation Centre

The Aquaculture Innovation Centre (AIC) was unveiled today at Temasek Polytechnic (TP). This facility is the first Centre of Innovation (COI) to bring the vast knowledge and experience from different partners – tertiary institutes and government agencies – together through a consortium model to benefit the aquaculture sector in Singapore.

James Cook University in Singapore is proud to be an important part of the institutions supporting the AIC. Other partners include Temasek Polytechnic, Nanyang Polytechnic, Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), and the Singapore Food Agency (SFA).

“Individually, the various AIC partners are already doing great work to uplift the capabilities of our SMEs in the sector,” said Ted Tan, Deputy Chief Executive Officer at Enterprise Singapore. “By bringing them together, they can now tap complementary strengths and accelerate the development of sustainable aquaculture solutions to serve both the domestic and export markets.

He adds, “The centre is a testament to our commitment to making Singapore an aquaculture hub.”

Given that James Cook University is globally recognised for its strengths in aquaculture R&D, training and advisory services1, this opportunity will allow James Cook University in Singapore to share our extensive expertise in the field of aquaculture, while leveraging and value-adding on the resources of fellow partners to elevate the aquaculture sector in Singapore.

“James Cook University, through its recently launched Tropical Futures Institute, is working in multiple areas with the aquaculture industry and other R&D providers to help Singapore achieve its food security strategy, as well as create new technologies and knowledge that will comprise the next generation of aquaculture innovation,” said Professor Dean Jerry, Dean of Research for James Cook University’s Singapore campus. “We are very committed to working with all stakeholders in tandem with the country’s goal of becoming an aquaculture technology hub at the cutting edge of innovation, and the AIC is one such vehicle to deliver our intent.”

In addition to driving research and development, and co-innovation partnerships, the AIC will also offer training and development opportunities in three key areas:

Nutrition, feeds, additives and feeding management: To improve knowledge base on nutritional requirements of the different fish species and corresponding growth stages.

Health and disease management: To provide guidance on appropriate aquaculture antibiotics and vaccines.

Genetics, breeding, and seed production: To increase domestic supply for quality broodstock (mature fishes used for breeding) and seedstock for farming.

What’s more, the AIC aims to raise industry standards through product testing, certifications, and quality standards development. The next generation of Singapore’s aquaculture talent may be born from the training AIC provides, which includes conferences, workshops, and joint research and development efforts.

TFI 所作为詹姆斯库克大学新加坡校区的研究机构,始终专注于热带水产养殖的研究与培训,特别是在水产养殖品种的可持续生产方面。这些努力在解决世界范围内热带地区所面临的问题是至关重要的,包括可持续发展、食品生产以及气候变化所带来的影响。

詹姆斯库克大学教务长 Professor Chris Cocklin 指出:“ TFI 是大学在新加坡重要的研究与发展机构。我们也特别开心可以提供水产养殖领域世界领先的研究,这可以提高新加坡的食品安全。” 在与 NUS 签署 3 年的合作备忘录之后,TFI 将与 NUS 共同讨论和发展农业技术领域的研究合作和水产养殖技术的创新,以及其他新的合作机会。

詹姆斯库克大学常务副校长兼新加坡校区校长 Professor Chris Rudd OBE 说到:“与 NUS 新的合作关系汇集了世界一流的工程师、数据工程师和海洋科学家,他们可以提供一些非常独特的东西,并且承诺在新加坡可持续发展和高质量的蛋白质能力方面迈出一大步。詹姆斯库克大学能够与另一个高知名度合作项目,并且该项目使用了大学的创新科技来造福社会,我感到很骄傲。”

TFI 将会提供其在水产养殖领域的大量专业知识,进一步推进农业技术和水产养殖技术的创新,同时为 NUS 提供有关农业和水产养殖创新创业空间的设计建议。

对于詹姆斯库克大学的合作努力,詹姆斯库克大学新加坡校区研究院长 Professor Dean Jerry 说到:“我们正在与越来越多的新加坡机构进行合作,努力帮助新加坡实现其粮食安全和水产养殖的愿望。我们也非常愿意与 NUS 这样的高等教育机构合作,发展下一代水产养殖技术和创新,帮助行业成长,使未来变得更加可持续和富有成效。”

NUS 常务副校长 (创新与企业) Professor Freddy Boey 支持以上概念:“这份合作备忘录将会为两所大学最好的研究人员在农业科技领域的协同合作铺平道路,这将是一个对新加坡日益重要的领域。”

Furthering aquaculture innovations and technologies in Singapore

The Tropical Futures Institute (TFI) at the Singapore campus of James Cook University (JCU) will work with the National University of Singapore (NUS) to expand collaboration in the field of aquaculture technology.

As a research institute established in Singapore by James Cook University, TFI is focused on research and training in tropical aquaculture, particularly the sustainable production of aquaculture species.

These efforts are crucial in addressing the challenges faced by the world’s tropics, which include sustainable development and food production, as well as the impacts of climate change.

“The TFI is enabling JCU to further realise its ambitions as a major research and development institution in Singapore and we are particularly pleased to be able to deliver world-leading research in aquaculture, which will assist Singapore in achieving greater food security,” said Professor Chris Cocklin, Provost of James Cook University.

Under a memorandum of understanding (MOU) that spans three years, TFI and NUS will work together to discuss and develop a research collaboration in the area of agriculture technology and aquaculture technology innovation, and to identify other new opportunities for collaboration.

Professor Chris Rudd OBE, Deputy Vice Chancellor and Head of Campus, Singapore for James Cook University, commented, “The new partnership with NUS brings together world class engineers, data scientists and marine scientists to deliver something quite unique, that promises to deliver a step change in Singapore’s capacity for sustainable, high-quality protein. JCU is proud to be associated with yet another high profile collaboration that applies our innovative science to benefit society.”

TFI will also lend its considerable expertise in the domain of aquaculture to further agriculture technology and aquaculture technology innovation, as well as advise NUS on the design of an agriculture and aquaculture innovation relevant start-up space.

Commenting on James Cook University’s collaboration efforts, Professor Dean Jerry, Dean of Research for the Singapore campus of James Cook University, said, “We’re partnering with institutions in Singapore, trying to help Singapore achieve its food security and aspirations around aquaculture.”

He adds, “We’re also very keen to partner with institutions like NUS, to develop the next generation of aquaculture technologies and innovations, to help the industry grow, and be more sustainable and productive in the future.”

Professor Freddy Boey, Deputy President (Innovation and Enterprise) of NUS, supports this notion as he said, “This MOU will pave the way to bring the best researchers from both universities to collaborate synergistically in Agritech, an area of growing critical importance to Singapore.”
