Why was the THUAAIT formed?

Italy (Milan especially) is an important location for Tsinghua’s activities abroad due to the strong cooperation between Tsinghua University and Politecnico di Milano University.

On 22 February 2018, the President of Tsinghua University, Qiu Yong, and the President of the Politecnico di Milano, Ferruccio Resta, signed an agreement in the Great Hall of the People to establish the Sino-Italian Design Innovation Hub in Milan. The signed agreement was witnessed by Chinese President, Xi Jinping, and Italian President, Sergio Mattarella. It is the first education and research base set up by Tsinghua University in Europe, indicating the comprehensive implementation of Tsinghua University’s global strategy.

THUAAIT is a nonprofit Association with the aim of establishing Tsinghua in Italy, developing cultural activities between Tsinghua and Italian Institutions and supporting the Tsinghua Alumni network.
