ABSTRACT

Recent comparative studies on so-called the East Asian Little Dragons (e.g. South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore) showed that Singapore has been outstanding in adjusting herself to changing environments with the rise of China and also in maintaining strategic balance at the same time. Therefore, this study focuses on Singapore but further narrows down the focus to a micro-level actor, SUTD (Singapore University of Technology and Design). SUTD, the 4th Singaporean national university founded in 2012, deserves an in-depth study because it might represent the Singaporean national pursuit in a new era. This study analyzes the collaborative research networks that SUTD have formed with its two strategic international collaborators, i.e. MIT in USA and Zhejiang University in China. This study tries to figure out how SUTD has utilized heterogenous resources in USA and China through the strategic alliances and how SUTD has positioned itself within the international network for its best interest. Policy implications from the research findings are also discussed.
