CHINA MISSION 2016

"Ambition determines our mission."

 

Aim of the visit

In October 2016, a delegation of Vrije Universiteit Brussel traveled to China in pursuit of educational, research and technology transfer initiatives. The UCIP team of the VUB was part of this delegation.

Activities of the visit

Meetings between the VUB's UCIP team and Chinese privileged partners (Northwestern Poly-technical university, Beihang University, and Sichuan University) were arranged to exchange ideas on recent technology transfer developments and to ensure continuation of existing technology transfer projects. Wherever possible not only the Chinese universities were visited, but also their industrial connections. We are very thankful for the friendly welcoming at all visited parties.

Results of the visit

The VUB's travel to China was perceived as very fruitful. Collaborations with Chinese partners will be extended into several new initiatives, projects, and domain. New collaborations were initiated between Vrije Universiteit Brussel and Renmin University of China.
