The Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) has had three provincial-level international joint research centers newly approved in the fields of human-computer interaction technology and rehabilitation systems, robotics and smart construction, and synthetic genomics.

The International Joint Research Center for Human-Computer Interaction Technology and Rehabilitation Systems carries out collaboration with a number of institutions, including the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the University of Macau, the Pakistan Institute of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the University of Electro-Communications in Japan, United Arab Emirates University, Macquarie University in Australia, and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. They work on the frontier fields of interactive technology and rehabilitation systems, focusing on human-computer intelligent collaboration and application of upper limb rehabilitation systems, and lower limb rehabilitation systems based on bionic self-adjustment mechanisms. The center strives to promote the innovation and transformation of human-computer interaction and rehabilitation technology and facilitate development of the assistive device industry.

The International Joint Research Center for Robotics and Smart Construction has established research cooperation with Hanyang University in South Korea, the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, the Maebashi Institute of Technology, Japan, and the Chinese University of Hong Kong, in cutting-edge research such as construction robots, mixed reality, and digital twin technology. The center highlights talents and technical resources and endeavors to create an international cooperation model in the sector in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The International Joint Research Center for Synthetic Genomics works with the University of Manchester, the United Kingdom, Macquarie University in Australia, New York University in the United States, the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan, and the University of Minnesota in the United States to study the theoretical frontiers of genome design and synthesis, overcome key technical bottlenecks, and promote the practical transformation of research results as well as the implementation of international cooperation plans.
