This month BOXARR was delighted to confirm the first deployment of its platform in China. Our newly certified Alliance Partner in China, Shanghai CWOPTO Technology, wasted no time evangelising the benefits of BOXARR’s solutions and quickly secured the initial contract with Beihang University (BUAA). The BUAA was founded in 1952 with the merger of the aeronautical departments from eight top Chinese universities. Today it is one of China’s foremost research universities and home to the National Laboratory of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NLAA). As a powerhouse of research and innovation, Beihang has earned 1,264 awards for achievements including three First Prizes of National Science & Technology Progress Awards and six First Prizes of National Technological Innovation Awards. Beihang also has strong links with the industrial sector, which contributes to more than 50 percent of the University’s research projects.
“We can see enormous potential for BOXARR in China. Beihang’s rapid adoption of the BOXARR solution is a clear indicator of the platform’s credibility and value to users”

Beihang has grown to be a university of global outreach, with a recently inaugurated Europe Office in Brussels and visibility in several global consortia, including Top Industrial Managers for Europe (T.I.M.E). The University maintains partnerships with 185 universities, research institutions and companies in over 30 countries. The cooperation covers faculty and student exchanges, joint workshops and publications, joint research endeavours, and international educational projects. The Sino-French Engineer School (or, Ecole Centrale de Pekin), established by Beihang and the Groupe des Ecoles Centrales in 2005, has won international recognition for its excellence in international engineering education. Beihang is also home to the U.N. Regional Centre for Space Science and Technology Education in Asia and the Pacific (China) established in November 2014. “BOXARR’s Alliance Partner Program is a key element to our global commercial strategy." says BOXARR's CEO Alasdair Pettigrew, "Building strong alliances with Partners such as CWOPTO enables us to service international markets more effectively and to deliver innovative solutions and excellent support to our mutual customers around the world”
