Fudan University and Shaoxing signed a strategic cooperation agreement in July regarding the building of a high-level innovation platform that would enhance scientific and technological achievements, talent exchanges and training.

In the five months since the signing of the agreement, the university has promoted the construction of laboratories and the Health Valley in Shaoxing. The first batch of Fudan University talent will also soon arrive in Shaoxing.

The university said it is looking forward to working more closely with local governments to carry out City Week activities next year. The university will also look to share development opportunities and seek high-quality development through personnel interaction, according to sources from the campus cooperation office of Fudan University.
