Advancing Israeli Innovation in China

Written on |

A new agreement signed by Tel Aviv University and Tsinghua Shenzhen International Global School (TSIGS) will promote technological exchange between the two institutions

A ceremony marking a new cooperation agreement between Tsinghua Shenzhen International Global School (TSIGS), China, and Tel Aviv University was signed last week at TSIGS in the presence of Mr. Chen Rugui, Mayor of Shenzen; TAU President Joseph Klafter; TAU Rector Yaron Oz; and Advisor to the TAU President and Director of Asia Affairs, Ms. Orly Fromer; as well as leading TAU researchers. A second signing ceremony was held at TAU during the visit of a delegation from Shenzen to TAU headed by Mayor Chen Rugui.

The agreement aims to promote collaborative research, startup acceleration and incubation, and business relations between the two institutions. Bridging Tel Aviv and Shenzhen, the center will advance Israeli projects entering the Chinese market, and vice versa. It will serve as a gateway for startups emerging from Ramot, the technology transfer arm of Tel Aviv University and will attract investors for early stage technologies.

The cooperation agreement was first announced at the Third Annual China Israel Innovation Forum (CIIF), held in Shenzhen on November 30-December 1, 2018. The Forum was attended by the three co-chairs of CIIF: President of Tsinghua University and TAU Honorary Doctor Prof. Qiu Yong; Co-founder of Morningside, Chairman of Hang Lung Properties and TAU Honorary Doctor Mr. Ronnie C. Chan; and TAU President Joseph Klafter.  

CIIF is a platform for influential individuals from academia, government, and industry from China and Israel to explore the latest in technological developments and university-driven innovations.
