Nanjing Professorship of Technology and Innovation

22 April 2019

Following the publication of the Report of the General Board, dated 15 February 2019, on the establishment of certain Professorships (Reporter, 6538, 2018–19, p. 418), the establishment of the above Professorship for a single tenure was approved by Grace 2 of 13 March 2019. The General Board has since become aware that the Report should have stated that the Professorship was to be established in perpetuity, with the Department of Engineering underwriting the costs, not for a single tenure.

The Board also takes this opportunity to clarify the arrangements for the post of Academic Director of the Cambridge University—Nanjing Centre of Technology and Innovation based in Nanjing. The Academic Director will be appointed by the Head of the Department of Engineering and will spend a minimum of three months in any one year at the Centre, but this will not necessarily be outside Full Term, as stated in the Report. The first person appointed to the Nanjing Professorship of Technology and Innovation is expected to hold the post of Academic Director of the Centre concurrently, but the two positions are not linked.

The Council, on the recommendation of the General Board, is publishing a Grace (Grace 3, p. 489) to amend the tenure of the Professorship.
