PolyU and the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have signed an agreement to offer a Collaborative PhD Training Programme. They also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a Collaborative Postdoctoral Training Programme.


Under the Collaborative PhD Training Programme, dual programmes for PhD students will be set up, enabling them to obtain a doctoral degree from PolyU and a certificate of completion from the partner institution, upon completion of the necessary programmes and graduation requirements of both institutions. In addition, the other agreement establishes a new postdoctoral training model between Mainland China and Hong Kong to maximise higher education resources to nurture young talents.
