Joint laboratory on space research

PolyU hosts First Knowledge Transfer Conference

Distinguished leaders graduated from PolyU business programmes


PolyU and the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) have recently announced the establishment of a Joint Laboratory in Precision Engineering for Space Applications.

Under the agreement, CAST will donate sophisticated equipment amounting to the value of RMB5 million for the new Laboratory. These include a vibration platform and vacuum/thermocycling chambers for shock, vibration and space flight condition simulated testing. In addition, both parties will jointly invest RMB10 million of research funding for the Lab in the next five years, and the research work will be carried out under the supervision of a Steering Committee.

With PolyU’s track record and strong links to space authorities at home and abroad, its researchers are now actively engaged in several projects ranging from the making of sophisticated space tools and moon maps to monitoring the health of astronauts under micro-gravity condition. PolyU will establish one or two special Research Institutes to support the further advancement of space research, and explore the possibility of turning its space technology for civilian use in the future.
