UNSW and China's prestigious Shanghai Jiao Tong University will establish a Joint Innovation Hub in Advanced Materials for the Space Age. Unveiled by NSW Premier Mike Baird at a special ceremony in Shanghai in November, the partnership builds on the successful $1 million Collaborative Investment Fund established by the two universities in 2013. The innovation Hub will be fully supported by the well-established partnership between the UNSW and SJTU technology transfer offices to ensure that the project outputs are connected to joint networks of industry partners and potential commercialisation partners in both Australia and China.
