The Centre for Applied Research (CFAR) is the knowledge hub and incubation centre for research projects, initiatives and activities at the Singapore University of Social Sciences. It administers and facilitates research and related activities, maintains a repository of the knowledge output of all faculty, staff and students, and publishes research ideas and findings in its working paper series.
CFAR also undertakes high quality research work in collaboration with industry partners and public organisations on issues of direct relevance to the business community and the society at large. This is in line with its aim to contribute to the society in a tangible manner. CFAR also actively promotes and undertakes case writing for the purpose of deployment in the University's graduate and undergraduate programmes to ensure that as a tertiary institution we continue to offer holistic academic programmes with a good balance between academics and practice.
