Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Integration Technology (SIAIT) was established under the joint efforts of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), and the Shenzhen Municipal Government in 2006. We strive for excellence in research and development in the quest of establishing itself as a center in the areas of integration technologies. It is the core research unit of Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) for research, innovative technology development，as well as system integration.
SIAIT is dedicated to integration technology related fundamental, visionary and strategic research, emphasizing on multi-discipline research and focusing mainly on development of system integration to establish a solid base for the integration technology and engineering researches. The researches undertaken in SIAIT are application-driven and serve the advanced manufacturing and modern service industry.
In the scope of modern equipment manufacturing, SIAIT innovatively sets up research areas combining intelligent systems and advanced equipment, featuring integration technology with robotics and intelligent systems, advanced equipment manufacturing, as well as automotive electronics and energy saving technology.
At present, SIAIT has set up 13 research units (7 research centers and 6 research laboratories) and the majority of academic staff are from renowned universities worldwide. The average age of the academic staff is under 35 years old in SIAIT. All directors of the research units have experience in serving in world-class universities/institutions or international corporations as professors or senior researchers. They have extensive experience in personnel training, scientific research team-building and scientific knowledge transfer.
In order to improve international competitiveness of China by providing advanced manufacturing services, SIAIT will keep attracting and fostering top-notch and world-class scientists for continuously contribution to fundamental, visionary and innovative researches. Within the next three to five years, SIAIT will make great efforts to gain international reputation, and take a leading position in the National Innovation System, and have a significant impact on the advanced manufacturing enterprises in Shenzhen-Hong Kong and Guangdong. By this way, SIAIT may help China become the world's manufacturing center.
