City ‘Silicon Valley’ and Berkeley join up

An innovation center developed by the operator of Zhangjiang High-Tech Park — often regarded as Shanghai’s Silicon Valley — and University of California Berkeley College of Engineering, opened yesterday.

The Shanghai Zhangjiang Berkeley Engineering Innovation Center in the Pudong New Area aims to become an innovation platform for high-tech research and advanced education in engineering.

Zhangjiang Group’s collaboration with the global top-tier university is  part of the city’s attempt to transform its economy to more innovation-oriented, industry figures said.

The center — also called Z-BEI Center — is a bridge connecting top academic research and various industry applications, covering segments such as biomedicine, semiconductors, new materials and environment protection, said Connie Chang, director of Berkeley’s China Partnerships initiative.

The college has links with Chinese firms Huawei Technologies, the country’s biggest telecommunications equipment maker, and Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp, the Chinese mainland’s top made-to-order chip maker.
