UK businesses can apply for a share of £5 Million to carry out projects in Jiangsu province and Shanghai municipality with the aim to stimulate economic growth in China through business-led innovation.
All projects must demonstrate the benefits of a balanced cooperation between both the UK and China, and draw on the capabilities of both countries to shape the industrial opportunities and challenges which will affect the markets of the future. Projects must also showcase innovation and prospects for business growth and productivity, and/or create export opportunities for the the industry partners involved in the project.
There are competition themes unique to each location, with Jiangsu focussing on infrastructure; particularly urban systems, energy and connected transport, and Shanghai concentrating more on innovations which lead to new products, processes and services.
The Enterprise Europe Network can assist you in finding partners for your R&D project. Contact us to see how we can help.
