Over the past three decades, UC Berkeley and Tsinghua have seen many extensive exchanges between individual professors. It is felt that a synergistic, transdisciplinary and coherent effort is critical to enable concerted research initiatives to confront major societal and economic challenges we face in China and the United States, as well as those that are global in scale. We particularly appreciate the strong support of Shenzhen Municipality.Our vision is to build a world-class partnership to fuel economic growth with accelerated innovation through transformative, transdisciplinary and translational research and education. We envision building a bridge across disciplines, cultures and countries, academia and industry, and an unprecedented platform for international collaboration.
