Shanghai Jiao Tong University-University of Michigan cooperative program

Shanghai Jiao Tong University-University of Michigan cooperative program

In 2010, the University of Michigan (U-M) and ​Shanghai Jiao Tong University (link is external) (SJTU) joined forces on a program that provides seed funding for collaborative research to develop new technologies. Initially, the program focused on research involving reduction in global carbon emissions and climate impact, as well as development of biomedical technologies to promote human health. Later, the program expanded to include nanotechnologies in all areas.

Projects involve co-investigators from SJTU and U-M. The universities each have committed to spending up to $3 million on their part of the collaborative research over the initial five-year period. Review panels identify projects that have commercial potential and are likely to attract follow-on research funding from the U.S. and Chinese governments, as well as from industry.
