Imperial and Zhejiang explore co-location opportunity at Imperial West


Imperial West

Imperial College London signed a Memorandum of Understanding on 15 May with Zhejiang University (ZJU), one of China's leading universities.

At the event in March to launch the vision for Imperial West, the College’s new campus in White City, President & Rector Sir Keith O’Nions set out a vision for an innovative approach to creating a university campus.

The College invited proposals from potential global partners in business, industry and academia to co-locate on the campus and collaborate with Imperial’s world-leading experts in science, technology, engineering, medicine and business. The early response has been strong.

ZJU and Imperial agreed this week to explore the possibility of ZJU co-investing in a future R&D facility at Imperial West, as well as enhancing the two universities’ academic links.
Sir Keith O’Nions said: “Our ambition for collaborating with other organisations at Imperial West – and certainly with ZJU – is to achieve a level of excellence together that would not be possible apart.
“We look forward to working with ZJU colleagues to establish how the two institutions will benefit from the potential partnerships.”
