PolyU-DRRC Novel Material Science and Technology Innovation Centre opens in Guangzhou
An inauguration ceremony for the PolyU-DRRC Novel Material Science and Technology Innovation Centre was held in Guangzhou in March. The Centre is a partnership effort between PolyU’s Institute of Textiles and Clothing (ITC) and the Dehaa Rossun Research Centre (DRRC).
Officiating at the ceremony, Professor Daniel Shek, Interim Vice President (Research and Innovation) of PolyU, said, “I am delighted to witness the establishment of the Centre. ITC has developed into a world-renowned institution in fashion and textiles education, as well as research and technology transfer since its inception in 1957. Over the years, ITC has excelled in research and scholarship by taking full advantage of technology and innovation initiatives in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area. The partnership between DRRC and ITC will definitely lead to more impactful and innovative discoveries for sustainable industrial development.”
Professor Jintu Fan, Centre Director and Head and Chair Professor of ITC, said, “The objectives of the Centre are to conduct research and develop cutting-edge technologies and related products for novel materials, health care products, functional care products and smart wearable products.” He added, “We also aim to fast track the initiation of industry technology standards and transfer the developed technologies to the industries and benefit society.”
