The Department of Chemistry of CUHK has established very close collaborations with the School of Chemistry of Lanzhou University on teaching and research for a very long time. To strengthen our collaboration, and allow our undergraduate and postgraduate students to know more about the current developments of chemical research and chemistry-related industries in the Gansu Province, we have organized four short exchange trips to Lanzhou University in the summers of 2015 to 2017 and 2019. A total of 86 students and teachers of the Department of Chemistry, CUHK had joined these trips to Lanzhou.
Starting from 2017, the exchange has expanded to a two-way one, in which the students from Lanzhou University visit the Chinese University of Hong Kong as well. In 2017 and 2019, 40 students from Lanzhou University visited our Department. It is anticipated that similar summer research trips will be organized again. The teachers and students will:
- Visit Lanzhou University and the Chemistry Research Facilities
- Attend scientific research seminars
- Visit the R&D and metal refinery facilities in several different regions in Gansu Province
- Visit some historical places in Gansu Province to know more about the history and culture of the Western China
