With the support of

Department of International Cooperation, Ministry of Science and Technology of China (MOST)

In collaboration with

National Office for Science and Technology Awards ( NOSTA)


Background and Objective of the Symposium

Science marketing and technology transfer is widely recognized as a major driver of economic development. Both China and EU are attaching importance to science marketing and technology transfer in order to promote innovation, economic development and social welfare in general.  In China, the development of technology innovation system is highlighted in the Outline of the National Medium and Long-term Science and Technology Development Plan (2006-2020). The system, featured by integration of enterprises, universities and academia, with enterprises as the main player, is a key approach to promotion of technology innovation and transfer. In Europe, there are many governmental agencies and specialized organizations involved in the work of facilitation of innovation, research results diffusion and technology transfer. The importance of innovation, science and new technology exploitation is also spotlighted in the Seventh Framework Programme (2007 to 20013).


On the occasion of the China-EU Science and Technology Year, NOSTA and AMSTAC will jointly organize the China-EU Symposium on Innovative Management of Technology Transfer on September 26-28 in Beijing, China. The objective of the symposium is to provide a platform for the delegates from both China and EU to explore new approach for managing a successful and more effective research marketing and technology transfer by exchange of good practice, new ideas and sharing of experience, etc..


The symposium has been registered as an official project of the China-EU Science and Technology Year.
