The Kühne Foundation, a public-benefit organisation based in Switzerland, has announced it has partnered The Logistics Institute - Asia Pacific (TLI - Asia Pacific) of the National University of Singapore (NUS), to establish a joint education centre on Humanitarian Logistics. The Kühne Foundation - NUS Education Centre for Humanitarian Logistics Asia Pacific is a first for the region. In line with its guiding concept “from/by Asia for Asia”, the Centre housed under TLI - Asia Pacific will be a unique platform for raising awareness and fostering collaboration between regional academics, government agencies, non-profits, universities, students and the commercial sector in this area. The Centre will conduct standardised and advanced Supply Chain Management courses and research into best practices and advanced Supply Chain Management thinking in the Humanitarian context. Its activities will be conducted in Singapore and with university partners in Indonesia, Australia, Switzerland and Thailand as research and training satellites in order to extend its reach to where support is most needed.
