For example, Zhejiang Business Technology Institute invested 150 million yuan to build an industrial research base in Ninghai County, and Ningbo Polytechnic co-built the Digital Technology Park in cooperation with Beilun Economic and Technology Development Zone and Ningbo Information Industry Bureau. 
As a major municipal project for the "upgrading strategy", the rail transit construction needs a lot of technicians. To meet the demand, after rounds of negotiations, Ningbo Education Bureau and the Rail Transit Commanding Office started to open the "rail transit classes" in Ningbo Vocational Education Center and Yinzhou Vocational Education Center in 2010.
Some enterprises even moved their laboratories and production lines into schools. At the end of 2005, Haitian Group invested three million yuan to set up a CNC machine tool center in Ningbo Polytechnic and officially launched the "mold CAD/CAM teaching" program, and in 2006 the group invested ten million yuan to build the Haitian Department Building.
