SJTU – Université Shanghai Jiao Tong
Signed on the 120th anniversary of the founding of SJTU, one of China’s most prestigious and internationalized multidisciplinary research universities, the partnership agreement between PSL and Shanghai Jiao Tong University aims to develop strong research relationships between the two universities and increase joint opportunities in innovation, research, and student mobility.
The agreement seeks increased collaboration in fields such as technology, engineering, robotics, innovation and entrepreneurship, big data, the life sciences, sustainable development through social science, the arts, cultural management, and the protection of the common heritage of mankind.
Exchange programs for faculty and researchers from both institutions will spur new research and education projects in these fields, along with new conferences held by the faculty involved in these programs.
The agreement falls directly in line with existing relationships between PSL member institutions and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. For several years now, MINES ParisTech, Paris-Dauphine, ESPCI Paris, and Chimie ParisTech have enjoyed productive collaborative relationships with Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
SJTU is a top multidisciplinary international research university in China.
For the past 120 years, SJTU has played a key role in advancing China’s technological and economic achievements.
