Join Groove and Green Growth to China in November!

Groove and Green Growth organize a delegation visit to China.
Date: Sat 01.11.2014 - Sat 08.11.2014

Tekes Groove and Green Growth programmes organize a matchmaking visit to Shanghai, Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces in China from the 1st to 8th of November 2014. Finnish cleantech-, ICT- and healthcare companies have a great opportunity to meet potential partners, clients and investors and broaden their network in the Chinese market.

The visit also aims to build a platform for new Chinese-Finnish Research & Development projects that have previously been jointly funded by Tekes and the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) as well as the provinces. The main theme of the trip is to have one-to-one meetings between Finnish and Chinese companies. We aim to customize the programme according to the needs of the participating companies.

** CITTC 2014: the 4th China Jiangsu Conference for International Technology Transfer and Commercialization **

During the visit we will participate in the CITTC 2014 conference that will be held between the 6th and the 8th of November in Nanjing. The conference aims to offer a platform for the Chinese and international companies to meet each other and find potential business partners. The conference is free for the Tekes delegation participants.

The conference includes a common seminar, technology briefings and one-to-one meetings with the Chinese companies. Representatives of high-tech companies, innovation and industrial parks and government organizations from the Jiangsu Province will also participate in the event. Finnish companies have also the possibility to present their technologies and solutions in a Finnish seminar that is held during the conference. If you wish to present your company in the technology briefings, please inform Leena-Kaisa Piekkari as soon as possible.

By registering through the i-PIC portal of the event you get access to a list of other participants and you can find the most suitable business partners for your company already in advance. The portal works also as a platform for arranging the B2B meetings with the Chinese companies. The registration does not bind you to join the delegation visit.
