4th SUN-WIN-SIP Executive Council Meeting

Friday, July 3, 2015

Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) Executive Director, Arthur Carty, travelled to Soochow University 22-24 June 2015 to participated in the 4th Executive Council Meeting of the Soochow University Nanotechnology – Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology – Suzhou Industrial Park (SUN-WIN-SIP) Research Institute.

Discussions at the Executive Council Meeting focused on current and future SUN-WIN collaborations, facilitating technology transfer and commercialization, and planning a roadmap for expansion of the Joint Institute.

Over his three-day stay, Carty met with many SUN faculty members, toured facilities at the Soochow Institute for Functional Nano- and Soft Materials (FUNSOM) and Nanopolis (the Nanotech Commercialization Hub in China), and visited start-up companies initiated by the support of the SUN-WIN-SIP Research Institute. 

Carty also met with several bright and promising undergraduate students applying to the 3+1+1 BSc/MSc and 2+2 PhD joint education programs for the upcoming academic year.

Since founded in 2012, the SUN-WIN-SIP Joint Research Institute has several remarkable achievements:

  • 24 collaborative projects involving 50 WIN and SUN PI’s, totaling over 11 M RMB ($2.23 M CAD)
  • over 30* scientific articles published in peer-reviewed academic journals (*we need to check with Arthur which number counts towards this total – ie: Qinmin and Garry have several, but not necessarily from this project)
  • 33 Soochow students enrolled or graduated from joint educational (3+1+1 BSc/MSc and 2+2 PhD) and student exchange programs
  • 3 very successful workshops, two held in Soochow and 1 held at UW, with 150 participants generating new ideas and drafting new collaborative proposals

In total, the Soochow-WIN programs represent Waterloo’s most successful international collaboration.
