MIT in China lead opportunities include:

Hundreds of cutting-edge student opportunities

A few of the possibilities:
  • Introduce MIT-OpenCourseWare and remote access iLabs educational technologies at 10 Chinese universities through the MIT-China Educational Technology Initiative (CETI).
  • Create property maps of Shanghai, indicating the rate of housing and office development at Credit Lyonnais Securities Asia, Shanghai
  • Research the effects of Baclofen on stroke recovery at Zhongshan Hospital, Department of Neurology, Shanghai
  • Build a bilingual Mandarin-English spoken-query information-retrieval system for Microsoft Research, Beijing
  • Conduct experiments to further understand the use of gene therapy to treat lung cancer at Sun Yat-sen University Medical Center, Guangzhou

In more detail CETI:

 CETI's original objective was to help connect a few Chinese high schools to the Internet and introduce basic web design techniques (See publication on original CETI projects). Since then, the swift global progress of Internet technologies has enabled CETI to grow above and beyond its original mission. In 2002 CETI sent a special development team to four rural towns in China to reach out to students who have had less exposure to educational technologies and virtually no previous opportunity for cultural exchanges. In addition to working with high schools in China, CETI is now also collaborating with MIT OpenCourseWare and MIT iLabs to introduce MIT educational technologies and course content at Dalian University of Technology, Kunming University of Science & Technology, Qinghai University, Tsinghua University, Sichuan University, Xi'an Jiaotong University, Yunnan University, Zhejiang University, Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Fuzhou University, Yulin University (Shaanxi), and YuanZe University (Taiwan). And since 2005 CETI has spearheaded MIT D-Labs' China activities with innovative applications in Qinghai Province.

co-blog Legatum change the world conference has been announced for 10 May 
MIT remains the most revolutionary space youth can study in usa- it celebrates open education; it houses the father of the web tim berners lee; a square mile walk from kendall metro is the most futuristic imagination tour I know of in the west (though I would love to join in celebrating any square mile tour you recommend for changing the world) 

and through Legatum it hosts annual conferences by the digital wizards who first brought mobile telecoms to the world poorest village mothers and their communities with the greatest sustainability crises; I guess but I dont know that the most futuristic square mile tour in the middle east is located in Dubai (the twin capital of Legatum with Boston)

hottest youth-spring question of our life and times-can online education end youth unemployment for ever ? yes but only if you help map how!
