On 12 July Bruegel together with China Europe International Business School (CEIBS) will organise a high-level conference about EU-China cooperation in technology and innovation. Through a series of sessions and keynotes the conference will look at innovation in Europe and China and the competition - as well as the possibilities for cooperation - between the them.
As we enter the era of Globalisation 4.0, the world is undergoing great changes. Against this backdrop, a rising tide of anti-globalisation, trade protectionism and unilateralism is generating global uncertainty and instability. When it comes to innovation-driven cooperation, there is huge scope for Sino-European partnership. As economic ties improve, how can China and Europe balance government policy and market forces to achieve sustainable technological innovation? How can SMEs in China and Europe leverage opportunities to expand into overseas markets?
This is an invitation-only event open only to Bruegel's members and selected experts.
