British university closes research centers
The British Imperial College will close two research centers that received financial support from Chinese aerospace companies, according to a media report. The AVIC Center for Structural Design and Manufacturing reportedly received about £6 million from China's state-owned defense and aerospace company in the past to conduct aerospace materials research, the Guardian reported on Monday. Another facility had been operated jointly with the Beijing Institute of Aeronautical Materials (BIAM), it said. Both research centers will now be shut down by the end of the year, the British tech university announced, according to the report.
