Business in china

EMVIGR has been invited to attend a trade workshop designed to bring new and innovative business opportunities to the marketplace. The workshop will be held in  Guangzhou in November with EMVIGR one of a delegate of twelve UK companies.

This is a great opportunity and brings the possibility of bringing our technology and expertise to an international market. By collaborating with our Chinese colleagues we can bring sustainable digital healthcare solutions back to the NHS at greater value.

The workshop is organised by Yorkshire and Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN). Details pertaining to the workshop:

The workshop will take place across the w/c 17th November 2014 and will be delivered in partnership with the University of Bradford. It will foster collaborations between leading UK and Chinese companies and entrepreneurial scientists, in order to create funded proof of concept projects, with the ultimate aim of establishing innovative and jointly-owned UK-China new technologies and companies, and new market opportunities. Proof of concept projects receive up to £400,000 of funding from Chinese local government and partners and run for up to 2 years. Funds secured can be spent either in China or the UK, as best serves the requirements of a project.
