Our strategic partnership with Xiamen University supports joint academic programmes, a PhD scholarship scheme and student and staff exchanges.

Cardiff was the first city in the UK to twin with a city in China when it partnered with Xiamen over thirty years ago.

Our partnership agreement with Xiamen University, signed on 18 November 2016, extends our long-standing relationship and existing collaborations on fields of mutual interest, including catalysis research.

We share Cardiff’s international ambition and look forward to collaborating on new and innovative projects that can deliver benefits for both China and Wales.

Initiatives of the new agreement include the development of collaborative training of researchers through co-supervision of doctoral students, as well as a joint fund to provide £1.2m of seed corn funding for collaborative research projects to attract external funding and create new trade links for Wales.
