Meanwhile, XJTU would also like to take this opportunity to facilitate the communication and collaboration between the invited scholars and XJTU faculties, present XJTU’s talents recruitment schemes and attract interested distinguished scholars to join XJTU.
XJTU has already held the SRIS three times since 2015. In total, around 600 distinguished young scholars who came from more than 30 countries and regions have been invited to participate this extraordinary event.
SRIS comprises one Keynote Session and several Parallel Sessions. Presentations on the development strategies and current situation of academics, faculty, research and postgraduate education of XJTU will be given in the keynote Session. The parallel sessions consist of a series of activities hosted by related schools, including academic exchanges, lab tour, meetings with deans and members of faculty. Invited scholars can thus have a clear vision on working environment, research, infrastructure, positions, etc. of XJTU.
