Inviting applications

7th – 13th July 2019

Tianjin and Guangzhou, China

The University of Bradford has been commissioned by iBridge TT International Limited 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 7th and 13th July 2019, in Tianjin and Guangzhou, on the theme of ‘Technology for Wellness and Healthy Ageing’.

These workshops provide a unique 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.
