Huawei New Funding Program for Universities


According to the Reuters report, Huawei is planning to donate around $300 million a year to universities in research funding after several major US institutions terminated their collaboration with the controversial Chinese company earlier this year.

The head of Huawei’s institute of strategic research William Xu mentioned that the funding would go to universities where links have been maintained.

In reaction to President Donald Trump signing the National Defense Authorization Act last August, many colleges such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California institutions and Britain’s Oxford University, terminated their collaboration with Huawei, ZTE and other Chinese telecoms.

Xu also mentioned that Huawei has already shipped more than 200,000 5G base stations to markets around the world, even when the US is trying to force its allies to avoid using this company’s next-generation wireless technology.
