In order to meet the demands of both academic research and the strategic development in emerging industries of the nation, we will strengthen the innovation system of industry, academics and research, and participate in the construction of an innovation circle involving Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao and build a number of world-class innovation platforms.
The university has established a number of innovative platforms, including the Robot Institute of CUHK(SZ), the Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data, the National-local joint Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing, the Shenzhen Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing, the Shenzhen key laboratory of Semiconductor laser, and the Shenzhen Finance Institute, and the Innovation and entrepreneurship base for Galaxy World & CUHK(SZ).
1）Robot Institute of CUHKSZ
The institute, jointly with Shenzhen Ganglong robotic and intelligent manufacturing technology corporation, will implement the scientific research achievements transformation and industrialization, preferential invest the latest scientific research achievements of hatching institute, create a national science and technology business incubators and accelerator, boost the rapid development of the innovative entrepreneurial teams, create a national important demonstration foundation of robotic and intelligent manufacturing.
2）Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data
Shenzhen Research Institute of Big Data (SRIBD) is a public service platform supported by Shenzhen Governments and National Supercomputing Center in Shenzhen (Shenzhen Cloud Computing Center). SRIBD has an ultimate goal of constructing a world-class “Big Data Processing and Analyzing R&D Base”, which will be an innovative scientific research institution with critical technology advantages in Smart Healthcare, Intelligent Communications and Transportation Management. Additionally, SRIBD is keen on personnel training, technical services and communication in smart management area, and devotes to provide decision-making basis for urban managements to governments, making contributions to local and national scientific research and industrial development in Big Data.
3) National-local joint Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing
The National-local joint Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing, leading by Prof. Yangsheng Xu (an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering), has set up a strong scientific research team. From the scientific research rank, this team is one of the most active robot research teams in the world. It takes on a large number of national scientific research programs and has successfully developed more than 30 robots and intelligent systems in the field of space robots, industrial robots, service robots, special robots, medical robots and intelligent car robots.
4）Shenzhen Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing
The Shenzhen Engineering Laboratory of Robot and Intelligent Manufacturing is dedicated to the robot study field (space robot, special robot on security safeguard, intelligent community service robot, and industry robot & automation equipment, etc.). It is expected to make great contribution to the development of the intelligent technology in the Pearl River Delta Area.
5）Shenzhen key laboratory of Semiconductor laser
The laboratory of the Shenzhen key laboratory of Semiconductor laser covers area of 500 square meters. The team has nine overseas returnees with PhD degrees (one academician, one expert of the Thousand Talents Plan, one expert of 1000 Plan’s Program for Young Talents, six professors, two backbone members of partner companies), accounting for 36% of the total number of the team. Project Leader and core backbone scientific research members have long-term photonics research experience, and lead the completion of a number of US or Hong Kong research projects.
6）Shenzhen Finance Institute
Partially funded by the Shenzhen municipal government, Shenzhen Finance Institute (‘SFI’, in preparation) is an independent affiliate of CUHK(SZ) focusing on graduate and doctoral education and researches in the finance and economy related domains. As a member of Shenzhen’s financial community, it will also strive to contribute to the development of the financial center by acting as a world class think tank both locally and nationally as well as providing high-end professional training for practitioners.
7）Innovation and entrepreneurship base for Galaxy World & CUHK(SZ)
Innovation and entrepreneurship base for Galaxy World & CUHK(SZ) was based on the cooperation between Galaxy World Group and CUHK(SZ) to encourage student entrepreneurship. Galaxy Group will provide office spaces and funds to be managed by the University Foundation in accordance with its financial Rules and Regulations. Center for Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship will provide innovative teaching courses for entrepreneurship teams, carry out project-based teaching and training, promote technology transfer, communication and cooperation.
