The University of Western Australia's new EZONE engineering zone, the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and the 1600-hectare Farm Ridgefield are among the university's research facilities to be showcased at a special event in Shanghai this Friday.
UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Paul Johnson will host the showcase, which is expected to attract staff from Chinese university partners, industry representatives and prospective students.
Professor Johnson said the event aimed to focus on UWA's research strengths in science, engineering and law and demonstrate how innovative research was addressing issues of global significance.
"UWA has enjoyed close ties with China for several decades - ties that link us in friendship, scholarship and research," he said.
"China is our University's top source of international commencements and Mandarin is the second most widely spoken language in Australia after English.
"UWA's climb in several global rankings in recent times is recognition of the efforts we have made to attract world-class researchers and to accommodate them in world-class facilities.
"We hope that students from Chinese universities and institutions will come to UWA in even greater numbers in the near future to take advantage of these facilities and world-class mentors."
