Montreal, April 26, 2018 - Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) is proud to host the first Canada-China Forum on Innovation in Science, Technology and Entrepreneurship Policy, on August 7 and 8, 2018. Usually presented in China, this forum, organized in collaboration with the Chinese Association for Science and Science and Technology Policy Research (CASSSP), a division of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is going international this year.

According to UQAM's Director of International Relations, Sylvain St-Amand: "This is the first time the event will be held outside of China. It is a great honor for UQAM to host this major event where around one hundred Chinese representatives will be present to share their knowledge and experience."

The Forum
Approximately 200 people from the sectors of higher education, scientific research and innovation, as well as public administration are expected to attend. The purpose of this unprecedented event is to provide the opportunity to discuss the evolution of public and institutional policies governing the advancement of science, innovation and entrepreneurship and to foster better networking among the various stakeholders.

The conferences will focus on systems that promote innovation in Canada and China, patents, managing research talent, public policy and funding. In addition, recent research advances will be presented in the areas of artificial intelligence, biotechnology, green energy and transportation.
