International Grant Calls offer grants for AI research through partnerships between Singapore and other countries, as agreed at the national level. The goal of these calls is to foster collaboration between research communities in Singapore and overseas, leading to significant advancements in AI that benefit both parties. Proposals that receive funding must showcase strong partnerships, from the initial planning stages all the way through to execution, and must align with the shared research interests of both parties.
