Dean Hellmut Schütte is pleased to invite you to our alumni and friends event on Monday October 20, 2014 at Dartmouth House in London (The English Speaking Union), from 18:00 to 21:00. In addition to having an opportunity to network with friends of CEIBS and China, Dean Schütte will provide a brief School update, which will be followed by an interactive session entitled Innovation, China’s Next Advantage, led by Professor George Yip. This practical session is based on a three-year research programme conducted by the CEIBS Centre on China Innovation, and will highlight:

  • why China has both supply and demand innovation advantages
  • how foreign companies are not simply transferring technology from advanced countries to China, but are also creating new technologies in China—for China and the rest of the world 
  • challenges foreign companies face in developing innovation in China, along with some of surprising solutions 
  • Chinese company approaches to innovation 
  • insights into the most innovative Chinese companies
