The EU-China Business Association is organizing a webinar to promote the EU-China cooperation in the field of innovation that is an important pillar of the bilateral relationship and a strategic action to support the economic recovery. The event will take place on July 15, 2021, at 10h00.

The EU and China are putting in place strategies to support economic recovery as a direct response to Covid-19. One of the ways to support economic recovery is by building stronger innovative eco-systems. But creating more innovative economies requires the implementation of more dynamic partnerships between the public, private and educational stakeholders. This webinar is looking at ways as to how China and the EU can work together to deliver more innovative economies – thus supporting more growth and better competitiveness.
