This panel session focused on how institutions can develop strategic relationships with partner institutions of scale and significance to enhance their educational offer in teaching and learning; how international academic partnerships can support and advance the paradigm shift in research and address major global challenges; how can universities ensure maximum mutual benefit that supports their individual long-term strategy.

Professor JIN analyzed the features of SUSTech's internationalization, its experience of building an interdisciplinary international platform, and the opportunities and prospects for cooperation with other countries under China's carbon neutrality Roadmap. JIN stressed the need to seek common ground and opportunities and persist in collaboration among global academia, although the current situation presents certain challenges to international exchanges and cooperation in various fields.
