MTS and SJTU intend to jointly develop annual training curriculum in the use of MTS equipment. Furthermore, the Demo Site will enable important international and domestic initiatives, including technical projects, joint papers, research, and development, to improve testing technology and methods, as well as providing suggestions for MTS systems' enhancements.
