Welcome to the first event in our two-part China-UK Science Innovation Series! In 2016 alone, China invested USD236 billion in Research and Development, making it the second largest investor in innovation globally.
Given this, as well as China’s rapid economic growth, Science Innovation Union (SIU) and the Oxford Chinese Life Sciences Society (OCLSS) have decided to team up to hold an outstanding two-session event on this exciting area of development.Attendees will hear from a distinguished group of high profile speakers coming from the government, academic and private sectors. Our audience will have the chance to learn about how China and the UK have been working together to boost innovation and funding opportunities, as well as to get an update on some of the latest cutting-edge research.
