Event Report

2018年10月29日至11月2日, 由联合国教科文组织国际工程科技知识中心(IKCEST)和西安交通大学联合主办,IKCEST丝路培训基地承办的第44期丝路工程科技发展专项培训在西安交通大学举行,共有来自西安交通大学、西北工业大学、长安大学、西安电子科技大学的50余名国际留学生参加了培训,他们分别来自巴基斯坦、尼日利亚、哈萨克斯坦等十余个“一带一路”沿线国家。

The 44th IKCEST Training Programme for Silk Road Engineering Science and Technology Development was held in Xi’an Jiaotong University from Oct. 29th to Nov. 2nd. It was co-hosted by the International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (IKCEST) under the Auspices of UNESCO and Xi’an Jiaotong University, and organized by IKCEST Silk Road Training Base. More than 50 foreign students from Xi’an Jiaotong University, Northwestern Polytechnical University, Chang’an University, and Xidian University participated in this training programme. They were from over 10 Belt-road countries, such as Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, etc.

本次培训课程为期五天,由西安交大资深教授团队亲临授课,内容涵盖创新思维与交叉研究、组织工程与再生医学、聚羟基脂肪酸酯及其生物医药应用、“一带一路” 与中国文化、中国美食等内容。课上教师以授课为主,兼备师生互动为辅,同时开展线上线下交流互动。

The training programme lasted for five days, and the following lectures such as Innovative Through Interdisciplinary Research, Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Polyhydroxyalkanoate Nanoparticles and the Applications in Biotechnology and Biomedicine, The Chinese Culture and the Belt and Road were given by experienced professors in Xi’an Jiaotong University. The teachers gave clear, vivid examples to make the topics deep-going but easy to understand. The students benefited a lot from it and discussed with the teacher after the lectures.


Besides, in order to deepen the students’ understanding of Chinese culture and history, the training set up two outdoor activities, which are the visit to the Shaanxi History Museum and the attendance to the commemoration ceremony of 1000th China-Euro Express Train. On the afternoon of Oct. 30th, 35 foreign students attended the commemoration ceremony of 1000th China-Euro Express Train. Such event had a great social significance since it strengthened the cooperation between School of Continuing Education and International Trade & Logistic Park, deepened the Strategic Cooperation Framework Agreement on the Belt and Road, expanded the training base, and promoted the construction of the Belt and Road. On Nov. 1st, under the guidance of our staff, more than 40 foreign students visited the Shaanxi History Museum. Professor Wanxiang, Institute of Modern and Contemporary History of China, gave a full explanation on three exhibition halls, namely, the gestation, emergence and development of ancient civilization in Shaanxi Province. Foreign students showed great interests in exquisite bronzes, terra-cotta wares, and tricolor-glazed pottery of the Tang Dynasty. They spoke glowingly about the advanced handicraft of ancient China and the wisdom of Chinese ancestors when they saw exquisite gold and silver wares of the Tang Dynasty.


Till now, there have been 44 IKCEST Training Programmes for Silk Road Engineering Science and Technology Development. As an important mission of the IKCEST Silk Road Training Base, this training programme plays an important role in cultivating talents and promoting the Belt and Road Initiative. Meanwhile, it is also exploring the development direction for projects initiated by XJTU, such as University Alliance of the New Silk Road and Silk Road Academy and making important contributions to the economic and social development of European, Asian and African Belt-road countries and regions.


The International Knowledge Centre for Engineering Sciences and Technology (shortened as “IKCEST”) is a category II centre under the auspices of UNESCO. IKCEST was established on June 2, 2014. The Chinese Academy of Engineering is responsible for the operation and management of the IKCEST. IKCEST aims at providing knowledge-based services at a global scale in the form of consultancies, scientific research and education for policy-makers and engineering science and technology professionals in the world, with particular reference to the developing countries. In February 2017, based in Xi'an Jiaotong University, IKCEST Silk Road Training Base was established, which aims to train more engineering and technological talents for Belt-Road countries.
