A high level delegation of Irish scientists are currently in Beijing to develop cutting edge research partnerships. The delegation has been invited by leading Chinese Universities and follows a highly successful “Connect to China” event held in Carton House in Ireland which established links between Irish research and industry to access the Chinese market.
A showcase event will be hosted by Peking University from 6-7 December 2013, allowing Irish and Chinese research leaders to explore how to work together for high impact science. Although the Irish team will be led by NUI Maynooth, it represents a highly integrated partnership with scientists from DCU, RCSI, TCD and DIT, all focused on the Scientific breakthroughs needed to develop new Biomedical technologies. This delegation is also part of a larger research effort that has been made possible by a Science Foundation Ireland International Strategic Collaboration (ISCA) Award to develop and strengthen existing partnerships with leading Chinese institutions in the research areas of ICT, biomedical science and nanotechnology.
