In order to build a world-class base of scientific research innovation and a scientific exchange platform and develop SUSTech into an international high level research university, our leaders are planning to build several interdisciplinary (or inter-category) integration research centers and interdisciplinary science research Forums combining and major setup and centering on the marina professors.
The SUSTech Research Center is aims at the new interdisciplinary disciplines of great national demand. Equipped with first-class innovation talents and world-class research and development equipment, the research centers will conduct cutting-edge interdisciplinary studies to make the research centers platforms for talents In addition, during research and collision of different ideas new disciplines may emerge and will Develop new requirements. The research center should present that the researched subjects are edge leading and interdisciplinary.The research center would strive for sufficient scientific research funds and project support with the motivation to achieve influential scientific outcome and talents in interdiscipline. The research centers would do every effort to be the pioneer and leader in relevant fields in Asia, the center of high- Level innovation talents in order to drive SUSTech to become one of the international high-level research universities.
The leadership members in research centers are comprised of top Chinese and foreign famous colleges and universities. The training members in research departments. Technical support and service for relevant enterprises by intimate cooperation with domestic relevant enterprises to realize an industry-university-research cooperation and build a first-class pubic teaching platform and research and development technology platform. The establishment of the centers would also play an important role in high-technology industry development in the Pearl River Delta of Southern China (as well as with the Hong Kong and Macao regions ).
According to the subject planning of the university, over 20 interdisciplinary research centers (see table 1) will be established in incremental stages.
