China Visit 2015

Lancaster Health Hub is well positioned to engage internationally on behalf of all the Partners


Over the past 18 months we have been exploring potential overseas links, including applications for EU funding under the Horizon2020 Framework Programme. 

Building on relationships already established at the University, the Hub has also developed potential health links with China, in collaboration with the University's Confucius Institute.  Lancaster University hosted a very successful visit from Guangdong Health and Family Planning Commission in September 2015.

During the exploratory visit, three specific areas of mutual interest were identified as potential areas for future collaboration:

  • training and developing future healthcare leaders
  • digital health, informatics and health technologies
  • prevention and statistical modelling of infectious disease and dengue fever
