DRAGON-STARPLUS follows its predecessor (DRAGONSTAR), in its important mandate to provide support services to European and Chinese researchers and policy makers, and to offer a flexible platform to facilitate policy discussions between European and Chinese stakeholders. Dragon-STARPLUS aims at significantly contributing to the ongoing bilateral collaboration activities and policy dialogues. The project will have a positive effect on policy drafting and implementation, on-going research collaboration, reciprocity, member & associated states cooperation (funding agencies), addressing societal challenges, innovation, social-economy and technology.
China Hi-Tech Fair 2016 (CHTF) is the largest and the most influential scientific and technological fair in China. It has played an important role in commercialization, industrialization and internationalization of high-tech achievements as well as promotion of economic and technological cooperation between China and other countries. Being part of CHTF, the China High-tech Forum has won an extraordinary reputation by its high-profile speakers since 1999.
