The design of new headquarters focuses on ecological and environmental protection, highlighting energy saving and other scientific and technological elements, and is designed on a sponge city model. One of the nine buildings is already in use as the administration headquarters of JITRI. The remaining eight are in the final stages of interior design and will variously house JITRI project managers, domestic and overseas cooperation partners, and supporting facilities such as short-term accommodation for visitors and a full-service cafeteria.
The center-piece of the campus is an exhibition of Jiangsu Province technology advancements that will highlight international cooperation. As a major catalyst of innovation in Jiangsu, JITRI will also provide space and supporting facilities for research leaders accepted into the JITRI Project Manager Program to develop new research institutes or key commercial projects, along with building their teams, for eventual landing in Jiangsu Province and the broader Yangtze Delta Region.
