Details: 

China is home to the world’s largest radio telescope and the world’s two fastest supercomputers. It has doubled its R&D spending since 2010, and forecast to the world’s largest spender on R&D by 2022. It is pouring funding into supporting ‘mass innovation and entrepreneurship’ under its 13th Five Year Plan. Recent years have shown marked interest from China to collaborate with other countries on the development of early stage tech and commercialisation of research and this trend is expected to grow and mature over the coming years.

What makes China a science superpower? What are the benefits of conducting collaborative R&D with China? How can innovative businesses form partnerships and successfully sell products in China or jointly develop solutions for the China market as well as third party markets? And how far has China come in intellectual property protection? 

These are just a few of the questions we’ll be answering at our Roadshow events in London, Bristol, Manchester and Edinburgh.
