China is heavily investing in the innovation area, while looking for new growth and competitiveness, and this provides increasing amount of collaboration opportunities in several areas for Finnish companies. The areas selected for the Finland-China innovation cooperation reflect the new priorities mutually agreed between Finland and China in October 2023.

Come to hear the launch of the Finland-MOST joint innovation call 2024 and learn how it can boost your business in China on Wednesday 19 June 2024 at 9:00-10:30 (EEST) / 14:00-15:30 (CST). We will also shortly review the other available joint calls with Shanghai municipality as well as with Jiangsu and Zhejiang provinces launched earlier this year, and cover issues that are needed to take into consideration from legislative, IPR and other perspectives when preparing joint projects.
