Showcasing new opportunities for growing your business in China

Friday 05 October 2012, 0930-1500
LEC Training Rooms 1 And 2

Southern China has become one of the country's key regions for economic development and this has created exciting opportunities for the UK's environmental technology industries.

We are hosting an event on Friday 5th October to highlight opportunities and gateways available to businesses that are interested in growth opportunities through working in China.

In partnership with our new International Research and Innovation Centre for the Environment (IRICE)- a collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences - we are able to offer unique gateways that support the ability to have a local presence in Southern China at a designated incubator facility for international technology-related business. The Centre for Global Eco-Innovation also supports business growth and mentoring for positive environmental benefits via the international commercialisation consultancy Inventya Ltd.

Short presentations will be made by UKTI,China-Britain Business Council, Inventya Ltd, Lancaster Environment Centre, International Research and Innovation Centre for the Environment (IRICE) and Lancaster University Confucius Institute.

A limited number of individual appointments with Inventya Ltd will be available after lunch at 2pm.

If you'd like to find out more about more about what's on offer and meet like-minded business professionals, please register online to attend this event.
