Now open for business
UniServices has established a new Innovation Institute in the Chinese city of Hangzhou. The Institute occupies a 2800m² physical space in the Hangzhou Economic and Technological Development Area (HEDA) and will quickly become a world-class centre for research and innovation.
“Both Auckland UniServices and the University of Auckland have extensive relationships and collaborations in China, and we see ample opportunity to expand on them in the future. To help make that possible, we recognised that it was time to show our commitment to China by opening the University of Auckland Innovation Institute China. We have been extremely pleased with the support we have received from our Chinese colleagues in establishing the Institute and we look forward to the outstanding research and commercialisation work we will do together.”
Dr Andy Shenk, CEO UniServices
