Professor Chu introduced the history, geographical location and profile of the University of Cambridge, and elaborated initiatives from the perspective of Cambridge Department of Engineering on promoting the transformation of scientific and technological achievements including inter-disciplinary integration, school-enterprise cooperation, etc. He introduced that the polytechnic of Cambridge is divided into five main parts, of which engineering boasts a long history and many major achievements. Cambridge's engineering research pursues the goal of facing the society, aiming at social needs, and insisting on innovation while giving people dependence and trust. Chu said that it is this purpose and goal that makes Cambridge an ideal platform for innovation and entrepreneurship. He said that the close relationship between Cambridge and enterprises lets engineering research meet the needs of the enterprise more quickly, so that the research can be quickly invested in the enterprise and the cost can be greatly saved. In order to help the teachers and students to understand the development of the school-enterprise cooperation of Cambridge, by further elaborating the research process of photonics and electronic technology and their penetration in people's daily life, Chu used photonics and electronic technology as an example to further elaborate the importance and advantages of innovation and entrepreneurship activities based on school-enterprise cooperation. Finally, he introduced the operating forms and objectives of Cambridge companies. Through the cooperation between schools and enterprises, the research is commercialized, and the value brought by commercialization can be returned to school research.
