NESTA: Harnessing China’s Commercialisation Engine

November 23, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 pm

Free, booking required

The International Team at Nesta are launching their latest research report on China-UK innovation. 

The report, ‘Harnessing China’s Commercialisation Engine: Collaborating with China to help UK Small and Medium Enterprises win in the Global Market’, is co-authored with Cambridge’s Professor Peter Williamson – a world-leading expert on China’s ‘accelerated innovation’ capabilities. The report focuses on learning from the real experiences of UK firms who have looked to harness China’s ‘commercialisation engine’. It drills down in greater depth into one of the key issues for UK-Chinese innovation identified by Nesta’s major 2013 report: China’s Absorptive State.

The event will offer an opportunity to hear from the report authors on their findings, and to discuss some of the implications for firms and for the UK’s approach to supporting SME collaborations with China. It should appeal both to UK businesses operating in China or considering so, and those with an interest in how the UK supports UK-China collaborations for innovation.

Registration opens at 8:30am with the event starting promptly at 9:00am. The event will last until 10:30am.
