Swedish Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and Chinese Tsinghua University launch a new cloud based internet service making it possible for students to attend lectures anytime at both universities no matter where in the world they reside. The project, C-Campus, is intended to improve research collaboration between the two universities as well.
“Using cloud services we can improve the quality of engineering education at both Tsinghua and KTH. Tsinghua University is one of China’s leading universities. Through our strategic partnership both universities become strong players in the increasing globalised world of education,” said Ramon Wyss, vice-headmaster at KTH.
The partnership between KTH and Tsinghua will generate new innovations, student projects can basically be running 24/7, and companies should be invited to test their latest technologies and services in C-Campus.
“Ericsson has expressed interest in collaboration and we discuss the possibility of creating a competition for the students involved,” said Ramon Wyss.
C-Campus will be launched today Wedensday 12 September 13:00 local Chinese time and Ewa Björling, the Swedish minister for trade, will be present at Tsinghua University for the ceremony.
