The University of Maryland-China Research Park is the result of an agreement between the University of Maryland, College Park, and the Ministry of Science and Technology for the Peoples' Republic of China. The mission of the Research Park is to connect Maryland and Chinese companies for successful joint ventures through a targeted array of business services, state-of-the-art facilities, and world-class resources.

The idea is win-win. The Maryland economy benefits from companies thriving in the state through the Research Park. Maryland faculty and students benefit from intellectual and cultural exchange. Chinese companies benefit from successful partnerships with both Maryland companies and the university.

The University of Maryland-China Research Park is established to encourage collaboration in the following market segments:

  • Healthcare
  • Environment
  • Agriculture
  • Energy
  • Fire Protection

The Research Park is a launching point for successful ventures. Maryland companies can enter the park through a partnership with a Chinese company or investor, or by creating a subsidiary with similar relationships.

Chinese companies can move into the Research Park by relocating to the U.S., creating a subsidiary in the U.S., or by investing in or acquiring a U.S. company.

The Research Park provides partner companies with:

  • Hands-on business consulting, funding introductions, investment opportunities, and networking with both potential customers and partners.

  • Direct access to the world-class faculty, research facilities, students, training, and business resources offered at the University of Maryland.
