PolyU and Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology collaborate to nurture PhD students and postdoctoral fellows
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.
