Russian scientists and Chinese business collaboration development

March 17, 2017

On March 16, 2017Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) signed an agreement with Chinese companies Inner Mongolia Carbon Valley Technology Co. with participation of Suzhou Dade Carbon Nanotechnology Co. (Dade Tech) on the joint project for creation of new composite materials based on aluminum and copper, reinforced with fullerenes (carbon compounds), which are used to develop new technologies in medicine and microelectronics and to manufacture accumulators and electric batteries.

The government of China is financing a large-scale national project for creation of Inner Mongolia Carbon Valley which will serve as a location for manufacturing and innovative centers which objective is to implement new materials based on carbon.

The largest companies in China focus on participating in this national project and attract world-class partners for the international collaboration. Due to the efforts of the Representative Office of SPbPU in Shanghai in December 2016 a technical task for the research project was prepared. The agreement was signed on the basis of this task.

Chinese partners invite Peter the Great Saint-Petersburg Polytechnic University to participate in the national high-tech project, funding cutting-edge research and providing the opportunity to carry out unique developments.

Vice-Rector for International Relations of SPbPU Dmitry Arseniev says: "This agreement is not just a contract for the implementation of standard services, in fact it represents the development of scientific frontier, which is very important for both Russia and China. The previous century was the silicon era; the 21st century will mark the onset of carbon and technology for its usage. Carbon is the future!"
