A*PECSS is a volunteer society of A*STAR postdocs/scientists who focus on expanding the career development opportunities for A*STAR early career researchers (ECRs). This A*PECSS Tech Talk Series serves as a networking platform for our ECRs to obtain a better understanding of local market needs and economic directions from the industry. This also provides an opportunity for the ECRs to share with the SMEs and Start-up companies about A*STAR technological advances and product development. It is hoped that with these interactions, possible collaborations could be established in the future.

The information given at these sessions shall be as a matter of guidance and comfort only and is not intended to replace, substitute or supplement legal advice and legal action that may be needed.
