International cooperation is imperative under the context of globalization. Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering adheres to the concept of open scientific research and global cooperation, develops all-round international cooperation with abundant channels and multi levels, combines international cooperation with its own construction and development, the talents introduction, and also the demands of local industries, further strides forward towards an international development path.
Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering has actively carried out cooperation and exchanges to realize the industrialization of scientific research achievements since its foundation. It has established a joint research center with Medtronic, a Global 500 company and the largest manufacturer of implanted medical devices. It also develops extensive and long-term cooperation with internationally renowned universities and research institutions such as Harvard Medical School, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Australian Government and International School for Advanced Studies, Italy, etc, aiming to boost the development of disciplines and improve the research level. Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering also undertakes a number of national, provincial, and municipal international scientific and technological cooperative projects. Meanwhile it greatly encourages scientific researchers to go abroad to participate in academic activities and hold positions in international academic organizations. It has carried out long-term international cooperation and exchanges with more than 15 countries including America，Germany, Sweden, Australia, Spain, Italy, Japan, Singapore, Romania, Pakistan, Canada, Ireland, Bulgaria, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates, etc, especially in the field of biomaterials and technology, with related research results published in international journals such as Adv Mater，Biomaterials，ACS Nano，Chem Soc Rev，Small，Ultrasonics-Sonochemistry ，Journal of Thermal Spray Technology，Additive Manufacturing，IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (TMI), Diabetologia, American Journal of Ophthalmology, Theranostics, IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering (TBME)，Medical Physics, etc. Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering attaches great importance to the cultivation of international talents, and has introduced 2 international full-time professors / research fellows, 2 post-doctoral fellows, 1 graduated postgraduate, and 7 postgraduate students. furthermore, it also actively transports talents to universities and research institutions worldwide, including the United States (Harvard University, National Institutes of Health), the United Kingdom (Imperial College London), Sweden (Karolinska Institute), Germany (Free University Berlin, University of Koeln, University of Bremen, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, University of Goettingen), Singapore (National University of Singapore), Belgium (KU Leuven, Catholic University of Leuven), Netherlands (University of Amsterdam, University of Groningen), Finland (University of Turku), France (ESPCI Paris), and Italy (International School for Advanced Studies), etc. The broad and close international cooperation and exchanges not only promoted the development of Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering, but also enriched the atmosphere of cultural life.
In the future, Cixi Institute of Biomedical Engineering will further promote international cooperation. We will, as always, open our minds and sincerely welcome colleagues and friends who intend to cooperate with us. And we are willing to work together with all talents for mutual glory.
