NEC APAC Future Academy

The Living Innovation Dojo

Why NFA ?

NEC APAC Future Academy (NFA) was formed to be the local hub to build an immersive, cross domain knowledge base with the focus on 3 outcomes: Transformative Culture, Capability Development and Incubation Centre. To transform hypothesis into real world application, NEC will anchor Industry Innovation Dojo under NFA, where the organisation will bring together customers, industry partners and the broader community to ideate and develop future concepts in partnership with other NEC labs.

NFA will be one of the key enablers for NEC APAC to realise Society 5.0 as we co-create with the public sector, private enterprises and the community to solve current and future societal challenges.

Complex, societal challenges cannot be solved by one entity only, therefore, NFA will work closely with our innovation eco-system partners: NEC’s labs globally, Institutes of Higher Learning (IHLs), Interns/Talents, Customers & Partners, Investors and Innovators.
