Event description

Description

Context

Vrije Universiteit Brussel studies and puts into practice the establishment of Belgium-China collaborations on technologies, knowledge, and innovation. Looking back at past experiences and through deduction of best practices, lessons learned, and collaboration models, this workshop aims at setting the ground for future approaches towards knowlegde and technology collaborations with China. In doing so, we take into account different perspectives of Belgian and Chinese stakeholders.

This workshop is particularly suitable for university researchers, management and technology transfer offices, policy makers, EU-China intermedaries, and start-ups and SMEs interesting in exploring the Chinese market. Both stakeholders from European side and Chinese side are welcomed.
