The International Campus of Zhejiang University (iZJU) was established in 2016 as the major internationalization initiative of Zhejiang University, one of China’s top universities. To date, iZJU has set up three leading institutes, namely the ZJU-UoE Institute (jointly with the University of Edinburgh), the ZJU-UIUC Institute (jointly with the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign), and the Zhejiang University International Business School (ZIBS). The Campus is now led by a team of high-profile academicians from different countries including China, Singapore, Australia, and the UK. Among more than 200 members of its full-time and adjunct faculty, over 40% are from outside China. With international and inter-disciplinary as the two overarching features, iZJU has set up eleven research centers who have built strong partnerships with over 30 top universities and research institutions across the world.
