The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and the Academy of Aerospace Propulsion Technology (AAPT) have signed an agreement to establish the “Joint Research Centre of Advanced Aerospace Propulsion Technology”. PolyU’s Department of Aeronautical and Aviation Engineering (AAE) of PolyU will take the lead.

The partnership aims to set up a highly competitive scientific research force and technical cooperation team in the field of advanced aerospace propulsion technology via a long-term and in-depth strategic partnership, aimed at further contributing to the development of China’s aerospace technology.

The field of advanced aerospace propulsion technology has a promising future with broad application prospects. PolyU and AAPT are developing an ongoing complementary partnership to establish the “Joint Research Centre of Advanced Aerospace Propulsion Technology”.

The five-year cooperation plan comprises several joint research and development projects. In line with the global future development direction of aerospace propulsion technology, the projects will focus on the research and development of key technologies, and enhance the engineering research and production capabilities in the field.

The signing ceremony for the cooperation agreement was held on 4 July 2022. The document of cooperation was signed by the Vice President (Research and Innovation) of PolyU and the Associate Dean of AAPT.

PolyU’s President stated the new collaboration will further support the development and modernisation of the Nation’s civil aerospace industry, manned spaceflight and space exploration.

Meanwhile, the Dean of AAPT stated that PolyU’s AAE has a world-leading research foundation, as well as design experience in aerospace and aeronautical propulsion technology. With PolyU’s comprehensive professional facilities and intelligence resources, the Joint Research Centre for Advanced Aerospace Propulsion Technology can become an influential platform for knowledge exchange. It will be of great benefit to the promotion of research and technological development in the field.

In addition to several joint research projects, this collaboration is also committed to cultivating a group of high-level interdisciplinary experts for future applications.

The Vice President (Research and Innovation) of PolyU stated that the collaboration will enable academic exchange and resource sharing, and help researchers conduct various academic seminars more efficiently. Simultaneously, high-tech talents, like research doctoral students and visiting scholars, will be nurtured. The joint research team will additionally be involved in a wide range of joint research programmes to foster major projects.

The Associate Dean of AAPT the Joint Research Centre will drive the cooperation between PolyU and CASC. This longer-term and comprehensive partnership will serve and support the country’s major needs and implementation of its technology projects.
