Eco-technology, low-carbon intelligence, and internationalization as the primary driving forces are exerting a notably positive impact on the development concept----“Ecology Comes First”, implemented by Singapore-Nanjing Eco Hi-Tech Island, a “Bright Pearl in the Yangtze River” which will integrate various aspects of the water industry’s development and leading water S&T and showcase the best of Sino-Singapore collaboration, whilst creating a model city that promotes low-carbon renovation and a green upgrade of the water S&T industry. Driven by new thoughts, concepts and visions of innovation, high quality and green living, the island aims to construct a first-class international and domestic highland for gathering water S&T industry clusters.
To realize this goal, and based on the industry positioning with water environment construction as the core of constructing Singapore-Nanjing Eco Hi-Tech Island as a low-carbon eco-city, the “Yangtze Water Award” Global WaterTech Challenge has emerged as the times require, and is looking for innovations in water science and technology.
