Smart education seminar seeks to boost university-level tech cooperation

A smart education seminar jointly organized by the Computer Academy of Guangdong (CAG) and the Macao Polytechnic Institute (IPM) was held in Macau last month, with the aim of exploring how to strengthen cooperation in the field of science and technology between universities in the Greater Bay Area.

According to IPM, which hosted the smart education seminar, 25 representatives from higher education institutions in the Greater Bay Area participated.

The representatives joined discussions on topics such as smart campus construction, university ‘informationization’, and resource and information sharing.

At the seminar, Im Sio Kei, President of IPM, welcomed experts and scholars from the fields of higher education information in Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau. He asked them to build a cooperation mechanism between the information technology departments of higher education institutions, so as to promote the exchange of technology.

Ji Fei, Director of the Information Network Engineering and Research Center of the South China University of Technology, and Wan Kam Meng, President of the Macau Computer Society, delivered speeches at the seminar. Representatives from Sun Yat-sen University, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, the University of Macau, and the Macao Polytechnic Institute gave keynote speeches.

During the seminar, the higher education institutions prepared for signing the “Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau University Smart Campus Alliance” agreement to build a smart campus alliance that would promote the sharing of resources and information for educational purposes.

The smart campus alliance is a professional alliance established under the framework of the Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau University Alliance. The establishment of the professional alliance has actively responded to the call for Greater Bay Area development, according to the participating entities. DB
