These projects aim to form a strategic research layout and promote industry-academia collaboration and technology transfer. In terms of international partnerships, UM continuously expands its collaboration with mainland and overseas universities, offering dual and joint degree programmes and establishing joint laboratories and national-level research platforms, in order to enhance the university’s teaching quality and international competitiveness and promote diversification and sustainable development of higher education in Macao.
