First UK-China collaboration program ICUK launched
The first UK-China collaboration program -- Innovation China UK (ICUK) was launched here Tuesday to promote joint innovation and knowledge transfer between the two countries.
ICUK, involving five British and more than 10 Chinese higher education institutions (HEIs), supports academic and business partners in forging collaborations, funding proof-of-concept research, and commercializing joint intellectual property across the UK and China.
ICUK will focus its main activities on energy, climate change and sustainable environment, infectious diseases, biomedicine and drug discovery (including traditional Chinese medicine), nanotechnology and material science, and space technology. These knowledge bases are prioritized as key collaboration areas by the UK and China.
