Prof. Zhang Jie, President of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) led a 15-member delegation to visit the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and met with Prof. Joseph Sung, Vice-Chancellor of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).  The two presidents co-chaired the second meeting of Partnership Steering Committee on June 20.  More than 30 representatives from the two universities joined the meeting to update one another on joint projects and discussed future plans and directions.  Participating CUHK members included Prof. Fok Tai-fai and Prof. Poon Wai Yin Isabella, Pro-Vice-Chancellors of CUHK; Prof. Wong Suk-ying, Associate Vice-President; Prof. Wong Kam-fai, Associate Dean of Engineering; and Dr. Andy Wong, Assistant Dean of Business Administration.

 

Fields of collaboration between CUHK and SJTU include robots, energy engineering, reproductive disease, diabetes, Asian business programme and academic Chinese.  Apart from reports on project progress in the previous year, discussions were held on respective challenges and the opportunities to expand the scope of collaboration.  President Sung and Presient Zhang put forward their opinions on the progress and hoped the teams will grasp the opportunities arisen from the nation's strategic development plan.  Project representatives continued to have individual visits and meetings for further exploration.

 

SJTU has been a close partner of CUHK since the establishment of partnership in 1990.  Collaboration projects between the two universities range from academic exchange, joint programmes, student activities and research collaboration.  The Partnership Steering Committee was set up by the two universities in 2015 to oversee and monitor the collaboration with comprehensive planning and direction.  The first meeting was held at SJTU.
