CAREC Innovation Decoded The PRC Episode: Create an Integrative Innovation Ecosystem to Promote Technology Transfer

3 - 4:30 pm Beijing Time, 20 Jul 2023 Online

There is a significant digital divide among the countries of the CAREC region. To foster collaboration among the countries the exchange of knowledge, skills, and best practices within the CAREC region is necessary to reduce the gap and create an enabling environment.

“CAREC Innovation Decoded” is proposed as a cooperation and learning platform for the CAREC startup ecosystem to tackle the challenges through sharing information, resources, and network. The People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be the first country to host the program as the PRC has a highly developed startup ecosystem in the world and has accumulated a lot of experience and knowledge to share.
