Kunming University of Science and Technology is designated low risk for its low levels of defence research. However, this may change in the future.
Kunming University of Science and Technology appears to engage in low levels of defence research, but its involvement in defence research is likely to grow. In 2017, Kunming University of Science and Technology signed an agreement with Yunnan’s defence technology bureau to deepen military-civil fusion.https://web.archive.org/web/20190805063855/http://www.zgjgrc.com/view.php?id=2758 In 2018, the Yunnan Provincial Government and defence industry agency SASTIND signed an agreement to jointly construct KMUST.https://web.archive.org/web/20190805063838/http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:SRcjmqDKCKMJ:www.ynetc.gov.cn/gzdt/gzjx/content_15073+&cd=6&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us The agreement is designed to increase the university’s involvement in defence research.
