We are deeply saddened by the passing of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, the first Prime Minister and Founding Father of Singapore.
Mr Lee had dedicated his entire life to building Singapore. He successfully and impressively transformed Singapore into one of the most vibrant, prosperous as well as innovative countries in the world today with his vision, wisdom and far-sightedness. This includes also the exciting R&D landscape and innovation-promoting ecosystem we as an International Research Centre live in and highly appreciate.
As we grieve, let’s all never forget Mr Lee’s contributions and commitment.
We join the nation in mourning and would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the family of Mr Lee Kuan Yew and to all Singaporeans.
