GE Collaborates with Shanghai Jiaotong University
A Jiaotong-GE automobile research center was officially established on March 4, 2008.
According to a plan, General Motor will invest USD 4 million in the Center in the coming 5
years, in an attempt to turn out more high caliber auto designers and developers in
collaboration with Shanghai Jiaotong University. Both parties agree to make the new
center a platform for auto research, technology sharing, and personnel training, taking full
advantage of the strength of both parties.
On the same day, both parties established a joint lab, the first of its kind created by GE in
China, or the 12th joint lab GE established in the world, to develop advanced technology for
auto making and light duty materials.
LI Jiancong, Deputy Director of S&T Development Center, part of Ministry of Education,
said that so far 26 Chinese universities and 7 national key labs have worked with GE under
112 joint projects.(CHINA SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY NEWSLETTER)
