HUST and Birmingham work on plans for joint research institute

 华中科技大学和伯明翰大学计划成立联合研究中心

A delegation of senior leaders from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) has visited the University of Birmingham to explore setting up a joint research institute.

华中科技大学(HUST)高层领导代表团到访伯明翰大学,探讨成立联合研究中心。

Led by HUST Vice President Professor Jianguo CHEN, delegates from the Wuhan-based university visited Birmingham to discuss how a joint institute might benefit research collaboration in a broad range of subjects spanning from engineering and gravity research, to translational medicine and nursing.

华中科技大学位于武汉,其代表团一行由副校长陈建国教授带队,到访伯明翰大学,探讨联合研究中心将如何促进双方在工程和重力研究、转化医学和护理等一系列课题方面的研究合作。

University of Birmingham Provost and Vice-Principal Professor Tim Jones and Professor Chen signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to encourage education and research links between nursing departments at the two universities.

伯明翰大学教务长兼副校长蒂姆·琼斯教授与陈建国教授签订了《谅解备忘录》,鼓励两校的护理系互相建立教育和研究联系。

As well as research partnerships, the initiative could help to increase numbers of HUST undergraduate and postgraduate students studying at Birmingham on joint programmes and create opportunities for Birmingham students to study in Wuhan.

除研究合作外,该备忘录还有助于促进更多华中科技大学的本科学生和研究生参加伯明翰大学联合课程的学习,同时也能为伯明翰大学的学生创造到武汉学习的机会。

Professor Jon Frampton, Deputy Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Director of the University’s China Institute, said:  “The University of Birmingham already enjoys a close collaboration with HUST and we believe that establishing a joint institute could lead to even more high-quality research that has an impact around the world.

伯明翰大学执行副校长兼中国学院主任弗兰普顿教授表示:“伯明翰大学和华中科技大学已建立了密切的合作。我们相信,联合研究中心的成立将会促进更多高质量的研发活动,从而造福全世界。”

“Our two universities already work well together on joint teaching programmes.  Closer working will allow us to further improve education for students.  We look forward to progressing our partnership and providing another exciting opportunity for our students and researchers to collaborate with peers from across the globe.”

“双方在联合教学项目上已有良好的合作,加深合作将有助于提高学校的教育质量。我们希望进一步推动双方的合作进程,为广大学生和研究人员提供另一个与全球同仁携手合作的机会。”

The University’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences already has undergraduate teaching collaborations with HUST, which has a long-standing reputation for attracting high-quality students from across the world.  These involve Chinese students spending two years at each university.

伯明翰大学的工程和物理科学学院已经与华中科技大学开展了本科教学合作项目,长期以来吸引了大量来自全球各地的优秀生源,这包括了在两所学校各学习两年的中国学生。

Professor Jianguo CHEN also spoke highly of the partnership and friendship between the two institutions.  He emphasised that, apart from the existing collaboration in education programmes, there is an even bigger potential for research collaboration.

陈建国教授也高度赞扬了双方的合作和友谊。他强调,双方除了目前在教育项目的合作外,在研究方面的合作还有更大的潜能可挖。

He said: “This is the very first “HUST Day” in the University of Birmingham, which leaves us with a very deep impression in so many aspects.  It’s a milestone event in our collaboration – both faculty and student exchange activities have enjoyed great success in the past few years, and I think our research collaboration also demonstrates tremendous potential in the future for the two universities.”

陈教授表示:“这是第一个在伯明翰大学举行的“华中科技大日”,学校的方方面面都给我们留下了深刻的印象。此次访问是双方合作的里程碑事件。过去几年里双方的师生交换项目都取得了巨大的成功。我认为双方未来在研究方面的合作也有着巨大的潜力。”
