This project started with a desire to commemorate A*STAR’s 20th anniversary with the publication of a coffee-table book, with glossy photographs that would make for easy browsing. After some preliminary deliberation, we recognized that we needed to delve deeper as there was more to A*STAR’s history than meets the eye. A photograph or two of Biopolis or Fusionopolis, for example, would not fully convey the strategic intent behind our investment in R&D; the exciting growth of our research institutes; or more significantly, the many committed people who have worked very hard to bring A*STAR to where it is today. More than a collection of vignettes and anecdotes, it was hoped that this commemorative publication would document the history of A*STAR which dates back to its early days as the National Science and Technology Board (NSTB). The definitive milestone that would open our book, it was initially assumed, would be the launch of the first National Technology Plan (NTP) in 1991.
