Joint Projects - Overview

Innovate UK and the Research Councils UK, together with central and regional governments in China have recently opened up many new opportunities for UK and China’s research organisations and SMEs to develop partnerships. ICUK helps bring together academics and commercial partners to develop UK-China joint R&D projects. These projects aim to drive joint innovation and develop solutions to solve challenges that China are experiencing.
