The forum has been designed to support UK and Chinese universities to develop their understanding of each other’s technology transfer and scientific innovation landscapes, share international best practice, and learn from successful case studies. The forum will provide an opportunity for UK universities to discuss collaboration opportunities with senior leadership and Chinese academics from Chinese universities leading in scientific innovation and technology transfer. The forum is open to leading faculty in relevant fields of teaching and research and university senior leadership.

The Chinese Education Association for International Exchange is bringing over a select delegation of Chinese universities, leading in the fields of technology transfer and scientific innovation, to participate in the forum. The forum is part of a wider visit designed to support these institutions’ development in high priority areas and further their international collaboration opportunities.
