1. Introduce of the Institute for Advanced Study

The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) has been established at Shenzhen University to provide both undergraduate and postgraduate education, focusing on interdisciplinary teaching and research. As a special platform at Shenzhen University, IAS seeks to build a team consisting of experienced professors with international vision and young teachers with great potential; adopt best-practice management methods used by overseas research universities to foster collaborations with world-class universities in Hong Kong and abroad; also create an academic atmosphere and training environment to meet with the international standards with the overall goal of attaining excellence in teaching, research and management. IAS fosters the training of innovative talents, cutting-edge scientific research and hi-tech development in the cross fields of marine resources and environment, functional materials, biotechnology, and financial technology. The research outcomes and newly-trained talents will promote the hi-tech industries in Shenzhen, particularly emerging industries of strategic importance such as biology, Internet, new energy sources, new materials and next-generation information and communication technology and facilitate the transformation and growth of Shenzhen’s economy.
