On January 11, 2017, Tianjin University and the Nanchang Government concluded a strategic cooperative agreement for establishing the Tianjin University-Nanchang Micro Technology Research Institute, with the aim of establishing a first-rate micro technology research and development platform and industrialization base. The research institute will give full play to the high standard of research at Tianjin University in microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS), and contribute to research and manufacture of key devices such as micro sensors, micro actuators, microelectronic chip devices applicable to mobile terminals, Internet, virtual reality, wearable devices, aerospace engineering, and biological engineering.
Tianjin University, with the support of Nanchang city, is required to set up a Tianjin University-Nanchang Micro Technology Research Institute in a high-tech zone in Nanchang city in accordance with the agreement, creating a national research and development platform. The two parties will plan and design an MEMS industrial park in the high-tech zone as an industrial base for the application of research and development and laying a foundation for an MEMS industrial cluster. Tianjin University intends to bring in thirty to fifty top talented people from home and abroad within three to five years and including them into its personnel quotas and salary system. Nanchang city will provide strong support to the institute by introduction of talented people, establishment and operation of the platform, and establishing an industrial special fund.
