Confucius Institute is the platform to demonstrate Chinese image and culture and the bridge to span the gap between different civilizations. Confucius Institute is the important pivot of NanjingTech's cultural orientation and global engagement strategies. NanjingTech and UZ have similar research strength in fields like chemistry and materials and, therefore, have considerable opportunities of collaboration.
