Future Cities Catapult is pleased to announce the launch of the Chinese language version of our UK Future Cities Business Portfolio for China. The portfolio contains profiles of 38 advanced urban services companies from the UK that are looking to build partnerships with China. It also introduces Future Cities Catapult’s project model and explains and how Chinese cities can work through us to access a range of UK-based commercial and academic expertise.
In publishing this portfolio, our aim is to help UK companies not only apply their urban innovations to cities in the UK, but also gain greater access to opportunities in high-growth overseas markets.
China has more than twice as many people living in cities than any other country, and a strong drive to leverage technology to tackle urban challenges. This makes it an important partner country for Future Cities Catapult’s international work.
The launch of this Chinese language portfolio coincides with the visit to Beijing of Sir Michael Bear, the Vice Chair of Future Cities Catapult’s Board, where he will be sharing the portfolio with senior Chinese stakeholders working on future cities-related projects.
If you would like to find out more about the portfolio, and how you can be involved in similar opportunities in the future, please contact our International Partnerships Manager for China Peter Young.
