In late 2019 and early 2020, UTS set up a research and innovation institute in Shenzhen (UTS Shenzhen), which aims to bring together world-leading researchers from UTS and partner institutions to collaborate with industry and government partners in China’s Greater Bay Area and beyond, emphasising research commercialization projects across a range of disciplines.
