Fudan University in Shanghai is launching a Chinese hub of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in a significant and long-lasting partnership with the University of East Anglia. The new Tyndall Centre Fudan will unite the research and teaching strength of two world-leading institutions to explore potential answers to climate change.
Tyndall Centre Fudan and Tyndall Centre UK will together research the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from all sectors of the economy and how to adapt people and places to the impacts of climate change. This new initiative will embrace reciprocal teaching, joint research and knowledge transfer.
Professor Academician Yuliang Yang will be awarded an Honorary Degree by the University of East Anglia on May 4 in recognition of his intellectual leadership and of his academic esteem. An Agreement of Collaboration will be co-signed by the Vice Chancellor of UEA, Prof Edward Acton, and President Yang, officially marking the beginning of this new chapter in UK-China University Alliances.
