Sino-UK Geospatial Engineering Centre

 
The Sino-UK Geospatial Engineering Centre (SUGEC) is a leading centre for implementing effective knowledge transfer between China and the UK in geospatial fields. The centre is a joint venture established by The University of Nottingham and the Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping, the research arm of China's National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation (NASG). The Sino-UK Geospatial Engineering Centre operates in both China and the UK. The Chinese arm of the centre was launched in December 2011 in Beijing. The UK part in Nottingham was launched in July 2012.

The centre will continue executive training for Chinese leaders working in surveying and mapping companies, in areas such as technology, management and business. The centre also aims to support long-term collaboration by integrating resources. It will act as a world-leading incubation centre to realise the results of research and development, production and commercialisation.
