The Academy of Advanced Interdisciplinary Research (AAIR) of Xidian University (hereinafter referred to as AAIR) was founded in 2018, targeting the global science and technology frontiers, striving to fulfil the significant needs of the country, benefiting people’s lives and well-being and serving the main economic battlefield. Taking “the constant exploration of new fields” as our guiding principle and according to the fundamental thought of “problem orientation”, we adopt the organizational structure of “Core + Periphery”, explore development paths actively, innovate institutional mechanisms, and build an innovative, specialized zone for conducting “Organized Scientific Research” in Xidian University. Persisting in solving substantive interdisciplinary problems and relying on the advantages of electronic information disciplines, AAIR will continue to develop frontier and interdisciplinary directions, promote the synthesis and integration of different disciplines, build multi-disciplinary culture, and enhance the in-depth development of interdisciplinary research. Combining “Red Genes” with “Open Mentality”, we dedicate to creating a frontier interdisciplinary “Special Talent Zone” to further advance the core competitiveness and international influence of Xidian University, strive to build Xidian as one of the world-class universities, and better serve our national needs, industries and regional economic and social development, making a unique and leading contribution with Xidian characteristics.
AAIR has established many cutting-edge research centers focused on a diverse range of research areas, including Quantum Information, XF International Joint Research, Advanced Remote Sensing, Extreme Sensing, Space Solar Power Station System, Flexible Electronics, Smart Sensor, AI and Security, Advanced Optics and Perception, Piezotronics, AI-based Big Medical Imaging Data, Intelligence-Aided Teaching, Language in Cybersecurity, Advanced Medical Theranostics, and Thin Films and Coatings for Device Applications etc..
