The lead expert of the STF programme and the S&T counselor of the Italian Embassy, Prof. Plinio Innocenzi met with the founding president SUSTC, Dr. Zhu Qingshi and Deputy Director Ms. Han Wei on 16 March at the temporary campus in Shenzhen. Though only having opened in April 2011, and with only 43 students currently enrolled, the plan is to enroll a further 150 undergraduates, a number of PhD students and post docs for the next academic year. Dr. Zhu said that he was confident that the university would provide the city of Shenzhen and the region with a top-notch research facility.

He hopes that the university will attract high level researchers (he will be able to pay the same salary as professors at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology), and that collaborations with European research institutions will also happen in the future. Prof. Innocenzi mentioned that he would be happy to introduce SUSTC to Italian research institutions. It was a successful visit, and we look forward to see SUSTC grow quickly in the years to come, so that it will provide key people to companies in the Shenzhen region.
