Shanghai's Tongji University has expanded and deepened cooperation with Germany through a series of recently-launched joint projects.

The university has established relationships with a number of German universities, institutions, and enterprises with support from the governments of both China and Germany. It is now expanding cooperation areas with its German partners.

Dietmar Harhoff, director of the German Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, was hired as an honorary professor by Tongji University on Oct 22.

"Harhoff's participation will help improve our education on intellectual property," said a spokesperson for the university's International College of Intellectual Property.

On Oct 18, the university unveiled a Sino-German automobile R&D center, which will research things like electric power, intelligent driving, and car platforms for the automotive industry.

The university will also enhance academic exchange, talent cultivation, and university-enterprise cooperation in mechanical engineering with its German partners through a joint program launched that same day.

On Oct 16, the university established a Sino-German institute of economics and management, which will train economic management personnel for Sino-German economic and technical cooperation and carry out research on finance, project management, industrial engineering, urban management, innovation, and entrepreneurship.

That same day, a Sino-German research center for intelligent science and technology was established. It includes five different branches focusing on control, computers, microelectronics, information and communications, and electric science, respectively.

The university will work with German universities and scientific research institutions to promote the application of the latest technological achievements and build an international joint laboratory to undertake national technology projects, major Shanghai projects, and international cooperation projects.

A Sino-German maker space was also set up to support university entrepreneurs and technical startups.
