Alliance unites higher education along Silk Road route

A higher education alliance was founded at the opening ceremony of a conference

about education along the New Silk Road held in Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi

province.

About 200 participants, including delegates from both the Pakistani and British

Embassies in China, as well as universities from 19 countries and regions,

witnessed the foundation of the University Alliance of the New Silk Road.

Road at an educational expo in Xi'an, Shaanxi province.

Shaanxi, the starting point of the ancient Silk Road and an important hub in the

Chinese section of the new Eurasian land bridge, has geographical advantages and

rich educational resources to carry out education cooperation with countries

along the route of the Silk Road Economic Belt, said Zhang Maizeng, Party chief

of Xi'an Jiaotong University.

The province has 116 colleges and universities, educating about 1.5 million

students.

These institutions have established relationships with counterparts in 50

countries and regions, and helped to set up 10 Confucius Institutes overseas.

Shaanxi is also home to more than 1,000 research institutes and 65 academicians.

Today's economic globalization and wider application of information and Internet

technologies enable knowledge production and dissemination to break the limits

of space and time, Zhang said.

Frequent flow of capital, technologies and human resources also requires the

cross-department, cross-area and cross-border sharing of higher education

resources, he added.

The alliance also issued a Xi'an Declaration the same day, stating it aims "to

contribute to the common development of civilization and open collaboration in

higher education", based on "the spirit of the Silk Road - peace and

cooperation, openness and inclusiveness, mutual learning and mutual benefit".

Establishment of the alliance was first proposed by Wang Shuguo, president of

Xi'an Jiaotong University, at a related international forum in January. The

initiative then gained support from nearly 100 universities from 22 countries

and regions along the route, which have become members of the alliance.

They include The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Moscow Power Engineering

Institute, Al-Farabi Kazakh National University, University of Liverpool,

National University of Singapore and Tampere University of Technology.

"Many are world-class universities and hope to have more communications with

China in terms of cultural, science and human resources," Wang said.

Exchanges and collaborations among those universities will focus on joint

research and development, cultural communication, policy study, personnel

training, healthcare and medical services, he said.

Xi'an Jiaotong University has already signed cooperation agreements with many

member universities to jointly host academic activities, increase their number

of exchange students, share educational resources and establish joint labs. The

university and Italy's Polytechnic University of Milan, for example, will

jointly establish a school of design and an innovation center in China.

The alliance will be located in the West China Science and Technology Innovation

Zone in Shaanxi's Xixian New Area.

The zone will be home to 23 research institutes and integrate 20,000 to 30,000

professionals across the world, Wang said. Last year, 60 experts and scholars

were recruited for institutions within the zone.
