International excellence

The Educational Partnership of the Year award recognises the outstanding collaboration between our institutions and underscores our commitment to global education and scientific research excellence.

Ambition and Innovation

Established in 2016, ZJE is the University of Edinburgh’s flagship overseas institution for education and scientific research and is based in Haining, Zhejiang Province in China: a £1 billion investment providing purpose-built, state-of-the-art research, teaching, accommodation, and recreation facilities.

The partnership facilitates an ambitious global biomedical research agenda between two well-matched world-leading universities, with a common vision to develop the next generation of biomedical scientists and support biomedical innovation.

This award is testament to the outstanding staff and students in both Edinburgh and China who have worked together to develop a transformative partnership between our Institutions that leads the way for UK-China Joint Institutes by harnessing the very best of transnational Research-led Education
