Hubs of Asian science
Science is booming in many parts of Asia — but it is too easy to focus only on the giant economies and overlook other research powers. This special shines the spotlight on five strong science centres in East Asia: Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan. This group is incredibly diverse in priorities and approaches, but all see science and technology as keys to their future. With their substantial investments and strengths, these five research centres are working to secure their future as major forces in the global science landscape.
