Corning Inc. and Shanghai Institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SICCAS) recently announced the opening of a joint research facility on the Chinese mainland. The SICCAS-Corning facility is located in SICCAS’ Research and Development Center in Jiading, Shanghai.

The facility will reportedly provide Corning with a research platform to gain access to SICCAS’ complementary expertise. It’s expected that related SICCAS technologies will be applied in new product development opportunities through collaboration with Corning at this new laboratory.

Combining the knowledge and research capabilities of SICCAS and Corning, the joint research facility will explore technologies to support the development of future Corning products that will address needs in China and worldwide. Through research in thermoelectric technologies, the SICCAS-Corning facility is exploring new high-performance materials that can aid in the electrification of vehicles, enabling better vehicle fuel efficiency and lower vehicle emissions.

“We are committed to working with local technology leaders to create knowledge for future products for use in China and other regions of the world,” said Mark Newhouse, Ph.D., Corning’s chief technology officer, Asia. “Corning’s continued success in China will be supported by our sustained investment in research and development. That investment is enhanced by partnerships such as the one we are announcing today with SICCAS.”
