2020 Singapore IDEX - We need your IDEAS!


2020 IDEX

Location: Singapore

Exhibition Date: 29th of March - 4th of April 2020



As the world becomes ever more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, the tenacity of our students to find opportunities within adversity and the ability to work within tight constraints to innovate and create new value is ever more important.

Innovation is not just about inventing new products. It requires empathetic skills to understand the needs of people and the heart to use one’s cognitive and inventive capabilities to benefit the greater community through sound design and engineering principles. It is with this intent that the theme for IDEX 2020 is set as “Technology for Humanity”.
