Inavya scientist, Dr Peter Sahota, has been selected by the UK Science and Innovation Network and InnovateUK to join a group of 15 on its UK Future Cities Mission to China in November 2018.
During the visit, Dr Sahota will be joining officials from 100% Open, the China-Britain Business Council, and Future Cities Catapult on visits to pioneering future cities projects in China’s Greater Bay Area, centred around Shenzhen. The city is a global technology hub for internet start-ups - including Tencent and Huawei - and rivals Tokyo, San Francisco and New York.
Dr Michael Wilkinson, CEO of Inavya, says “This UK mission offers Inavya an excellent opportunity to advance its commercial strategy to enter the China market by leveraging the entrepreneurial spirit of Shenzhen. Peter is a Mandarin speaker with significant expertise in AI and business culture. While on the mission, he will continue to deepen Inavya’s engagement with Tsinghua University and corporates in China.”
