About the Smart Industry Academy Nanjing

The Smart Industry Academy is located in Chi-Lin Innovation Park (CLIP), a new, fully integrated science and technology community for research, development, and business. It is part of the economic zone of the Yangtze River Delta, including major economic centres such as the cities of Shanghai, Suzhou, and Hangzhou, which account for 20% of China’s gross domestic product and a third of its imports and exports. We are looking for companies and lateral thinkers with innovative visions and passion for the maxim “Creating a better world”. The focus should be on renewable energies, intelligent and low-carbon technologies, new materials, and biotechnologies. The Smart Industry Academy is operated by the Nanjing Robot Research Institute (NRRI), which was founded in January 2015 in cooperation with the Nanjing Chilin High-Tech Industrial Zone of Nanjing Science and Technology University, PHOENIX CONTACT, and the Jiangsu JINGXIN Research Institute for Intelligent Manufacturing. The Nanjing Robot Research Institute aims to become a leader in the robotics industry by developing key robotic technologies and building an innovation platform that integrates scientific research, agglomeration and cultivation of talent, public technology services, and product incubation and industrialization.

The Smart Industry Academy’s approach is to work together with the network from Germany and partners in the industrial metropolises to promote the transfer of knowledge in many areas of state-of-the-art production technologies.
