The collaboration is based at Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP)..., which is one of the largest innovation precincts in China and recognised as one of the world's most dynamic places for converting clever research into valuable industrial processes and products. It is a hub for more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, 480 R&D organisations, as well as 10 national and 28 international higher education institutions.
To facilitate the collaboration Monash established the Monash Suzhou Science and Technology Research Institute (Monash Suzhou Research Institute (MSRI) in short), a not for profit research institute in SIP. MSRI aims to provide a wide range of R&D support to Monash in China in five priority research areas including:
· Advanced computation in science and engineering;
· Advanced materials and manufacturing;
· Energy and environment;
· Future cities; and
· Life sciences
MSRI aims to attract outstanding researchers and high calibre research students. Research in the long term will not be limited only to the above themes; based on the research strengths of SEU and Monash, research in other areas will also be developed and promoted in time. It is the intention to build up a critical mass of researchers at the MSRI and JRI and strengthen relationships in R&D with local and international industries and other institutions in China.
