Innovators interested in technology for wellness and healthy ageing are invited to apply to attend funded workshops in China in July.
The University of Bradford has been commissioned by the University of Bradford by iBridge TT International Ltd to organise two Open Innovation Workshops for UK health technology companies wishing to engage with partners in China to access development funding and to create commercial opportunities in the Chinese market.
The workshops will be held between 7 and 13 July 2019, in Tianjin and Guangzhou. They provide an opportunity to build partnerships in China and to secure up to £220.000 funding for arising projects as well as to identify investors and commercial partners. Substantial government and investor follow-on funding is available. The in-country costs of attending the workshop will be principally met by iBridge, who will also provide a travel grant of up to £800 per participating company towards Chinese visa and airfare costs.
The programme is open to small and medium-sized companies, to research and charitable institutions, as well as to clinicians and academics working in the field of wellness and/or ageing, with technology that is near commercialisation or already commercialised outside China.
All applications should be submitted by Friday 26 April.
