Nankai University

Since its founding in 1919, Nankai University has forged a strong academic reputation. Known as the ‘North Star’ among China’s higher education institutions, it has gathered many academic leaders over the years, and inspired generations of students, building a model for higher education in China. Aimed at making an impact on society, the university has produced many results that have brought significant socio-economic benefits.

NKU is involved in the Agriloop project building up a pilot plant with the University of Verona. The main objective is to produce a large amount (kilos) of natural polyester (PHA) produced by specific bacterias.

This natural polyester will be used for the production of end-products for different sectors including agriculture.
