PolyU Shenzhen Base, established in 2011, renders assistance to PolyU’s academics to undertake research projects at national, provincial and municipal levels through collaborating with universities and industries of the Pearl River Delta region. Leveraging on the opportunities of the Greater Bay Area, and tapping into the resources and policies of the Shenzhen government, PolyU has set up national key laboratories (partner laboratories), Shenzhen government key laboratories and various joint research centres. With the support of the Shenzhen Virtual University Park, PolyU recruits postdoctoral researchers to give strength to its research work. The facilities of Shenzhen Base are made available to enhance Hong Kong experts’ collaboration with their counterparts in the Pearl River Delta region and are there to bridge up geographical gaps, gradually realizing the integration of technologies and research talents in the region.
