The Lab's Home: SUSTech and Shenzhen

Established in 2012, the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) is a public institution funded by the municipal government of Shenzhen, the epicentre of China’s economic miracle and ingenuity over the past 35 years. SUSTech has witnessed a rapid ascent onto the global stage and is widely known as a pioneer for higher education reform and innovation in China with a mission to reform Chinese tertiary education and become a top-notch international research university. Set on five hundred acres of wooded landscape of rolling hills and wandering creeks in the picturesque Nanshan (South Mountain) area, the campus offers an ideal environment for learning and research.

Modern, prosperous and multicultural, Shenzhen is an international metropolis situated immediately north to Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. As one of China's major gateways to the world, Shenzhen is the country's fastest-growing city in the past two decades with around 20 million residents. One of China’s wealthiest cities and a Special Economic Zone (SEZ), Shenzhen is the predominant epicenter of high-tech design and manufacturing in the world, home to the world's third-busiest container port, and the fourth-busiest airport on the Chinese mainland.  Named “the new Silicon Valley,” and the “maker’s dream city,” Shenzhen is the staging ground for Tech giants, global innovation leaders, designers, entrepreneurs and rising startups.  Shenzhen’s pleasant climate and picturesque coastal and mountain scenery have earned it a place on The New York Times’ list of the world's must-visit destinations. Shenzhen boasts close to 300Km of coastline serving up high-quality beaches, a vibrant metropolitan lifestyle, a thriving cultural scene, numerous entertainment attractions, golf clubs, shopping malls, food streets and nightlife districts.
