Second seminar: Building Bridges Between the UK and China: From Investment to Global Research Advances. Join us for part two of our China-UK Science Innovation Series!
Innovation is arguably one of the most important boosters of a country's economy and growth. In light of this and our passion for innovation, we are running a series of two events that will focus on what countries have been doing to amplify their own innovative capacities and also how interactions between countries can accelerate the translation of innovation. In this exciting series, we will use two of the most innovative countries, China and the UK, as models of successful investment in science, technology and innovation. Attendees will hear from a distinguished group of high profile speakers coming from the government, academic and private sectors. Our audience will also have the chance to learn about how China and the UK have been working together to boost innovation, funding opportunities and to get an update on the latest cutting-edge research. If you are also passionate about innovation and want to be up-to-date on the hottest global innovation topics, you should definitely join us!
