Tsinghua's x-lab is a university-based education platform designed to foster student creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship. It brings together Tsinghua students, faculty, alumni, experienced entrepreneurs, investors and experts from across society.
'X' in the Platform's name Refers to the mission of Pursuing the Unknown at the intersection of Multiple Academic Disciplines and Needs. 'Lab' emphasizes the Experiential, Collaborative and Action-based Process That is Core to the x-Lab's Approach to learning. These form the basis of the three unique value propositions that the x-lab offers: linkages among multiple disciplines within Tsinghua, integration of resources within and outside the university, and new learning methods to develop individual and team capabilities to generate business model innovations and support social activism.
Officially launched in April 2013, the x-lab operates under the auspices of the School of Economics and Management and links 16 schools and departments across Tsinghua University. The Tsinghua Entrepreneur & Executive Club (TEEC) and Tsinghua Science Park (TusPark) are strategic founding partners.
