The University of Auckland Innovation Institute China - Powered by UniServices

Open for business

UniServices has established an 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 be 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

Hangzhou, China

Hangzhou is one of China’s leading innovation and technology hubs and is home to the research and development centres of leading companies like Siemens, Abbott, Pfizer, Novartis, Bayer, Eli Lilly, Merck, Huawei and ABB.

Facilities for hire

The Institute offers meeting rooms, conference facilities and closed office areas which can be booked for client meetings, seminars, functions or as workspace. Bookings can be made on an ad-hoc basis or under a long term co-location agreement. Access to these facilities will enable research and commercial partners to have closer collaborations with Chinese universities, government agencies and businesses.
