The School-Enterprise Joint Training

Hi-Target has cooperated with the laboratory for many years. Based on the common aim, the two parties have initially built up the school-enterprise joint training. It will continue providing technical support, talent training and other assistance to college students in various countries and regions. It’s helpful to commercialize academic research results and technology. While broadening the horizons of international students, it also allows them to have a clear understanding of the industry development in their countries and regions. Simultaneously, it will provide ideas for their future career choices and personal development.

In the End

We are looking forward to the next year when attaining success in fighting against the pandemic. Therefore, students from all over the world would gather at the foot of Luojia Mountain to explore more together.
