Welcome to Join Us

The Joint SDU-NTU Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research (C-FAIR) was launched on July 5, 2019. It was jointly established by Shandong University (SDU, China) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU, Singapore). Synergizing the strong research and education capabilities of both universities, C-FAIR focuses on the research areas of artificial intelligence fundamentals, AI+ health and aging, crowd science and smart government, block chain intelligence, cross-media intelligence, smart service applications, etc. By utilizing the "2+X" mode, C-FAIR brings together the R&D strengths of the relevant disciplines at SDU and NTU, while also involving other leading universities and top researchers from all over the world. This joint research centre aims to become a world-class platform for fundamental and translational research, lifelong education, talent development, and R&D commercialization.

In order to achieve the strategic goal of building a world-class research institute, C-FAIR has formulated a series of high-level talent recruitment plans with prestigious packages and funding support.
