“Talents are primary resources. SZU has attached great importance to talent work. The forum provides an opportunity for young individuals holding a Ph.D. degree to explore SZU, fostering a deeper understanding of the university and the city through exchanges. Our primary goal is to welcome more young talents to join us," Mao Junfa, president of SZU, said.
In recent years, SZU has implemented a series of measures to attract and support talents, offering financial assistance for research projects.
Mao highlighted two aspects that make SZU appealing to young scientists. First is Shenzhen’s geographical advantages, vibrant atmosphere, abundant opportunities, and people-centric environment. Second is SZU’s integral role in the city’s higher education system, marked by rapid development and robust talent support.
