EEN members Steinbeis 2i GmbH and FORTH, alongside other partners within the ENRICH in China team, are offering the opportunity to support you as you build partnerships and expand your international potential in China, through their matchmaking and innovation tour to China this September. Focusing on science, technology and innovation based SME's from all sectors, this tour will support you as you explore the Chinese market, build connections and build your confidence in doing business and/or research with Chinese organisations.
As one of the largest EU-China platforms for investment, trade and technological cooperation, the EU-China Business & Technology Cooperation Fair offers an important platform for building closer relationships between the EU and China and will gather together around 1,500 participants from industry, government, clusters and academia. In the context of the Belt and Road initiative (B&R), the Beijing B&R International Co-Incubation Annual Meeting aims to drive Chinese incubation service providers to establish, develop and maintain commercial activities in relevant B&R markets, building a Beijing-based eco-system for international incubation.
Taking place in September and visiting key Chinese tech-based organisations, innovators and EU-friendly soft-landing zones, this tour also offers free access to the EU-China Business & Technology Cooperation Fair in Chengdu as well as the Beijing B&R International Co-Incubation Annual Meeting.
