Event description

Description

China has undergone massive levels of industrialisation and urbanisation in the last 20 years; both have had a dramatic impact on the country’s environment, particularly its water and air quality. The Chinese government recognises that these issues are having an impact on the economy and are likely to reduce growth and prosperity in the future.

At this event, Mark Schneider will explore the innovative solutions being sought and the opportunities this presents for British companies.

Mark has been involved in innovation and knowledge transfer for more than 20 years. During that time he has managed a number of complex projects and services, involving multi-partners and stakeholders in the UK, Europe and China. He has worked in the UK university sector, undertaking business development and knowledge transfer activities, worked with UK businesses, helping them to transfer their technology to Europe and China and provided support and training to European universities interested in developing their commercial activities. He spent eight years in Luxembourg and Brussels delivering innovation and technology transfer support and training on behalf of the European Commission.

Since May 2013 he has been working with partners in China to help West Midlands organisations develop business, Research and Development and civic links with Chinese regions and cities. Much of this work has been financially supported by West Midlands local authorities and by the Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO).
