Centre for Applied Research

Driving research focused on applied work with industry relevance.

The Centre for Applied Research (CFAR) undertakes, administers and facilitates research and related activities. It also serves as an incubation centre for research programmes and projects. CFAR, being Singapore University of Social Sciences' knowledge hub, maintains a repository of the knowledge output of all faculty, staff and students.

The research focus is primarily on applied work with industry relevance. This is in line with its aim to contribute to the society in a tangible manner. In the same spirit, CFAR undertakes collaborative research with industry partners and public institutions on various issues of direct interest to the business community and to the society at large.

CFAR also actively promotes and undertakes case writing for the purpose of deployment in the University's graduate and undergraduate programmes to ensure that as a tertiary institution we continue to offer holistic academic programmes with a good balance between academics and practice.
