UM Macao Centre for Testing of Chinese Medicine, CPTTM sign MOU

The Macao Centre for Testing of Chinese Medicine, University of Macau (MCTCM, UM), and the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Center (CPTTM) signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on the delivery service for lab test, with the aim of promoting Macao’s ‘1+4’ strategy for economic diversification and the development of the Chinese medicine industry.

In the presence of UM Vice Rector Xu Jian, MCTCM Director Li Shaoping and CPTTM Deputy Director General Chang Chak Io signed the MOU. Xu also gave the CPTTM delegation an overview of UM’s commercialisation of research results. She expressed hope that the industry will gain a better understanding of the university’s industry-academia collaboration through CPTTM. According to the MOU, Chinese medicine companies in Macao can send their samples to MCTCM for testing through CPTTM, and the testing costs will be subsidised.

After the signing ceremony, the CPTTM delegation visited MCTCM, and both parties had discussions on the development of the health and traditional Chinese medicine industry, the commercialisation of research results, technical training and other related areas of cooperation. Both parties agreed to strengthen cooperation in the future.
