JITRI reaches collaborative agreement withTWI. The agreement sees the creation of an advanced materials and manufacturing technologies research centre at TWI which will develop materials and joining technologies for JITRI.
As one of the largest technology research centres in China, JITRI focuses on bridging the gap between fundamental technology research and the commercialisation of these technologies via market-orientated product development. TWI is one of the world’s foremost independent research and technology organisations, with expertise in materials joining and engineering processes as applied in industry. This arrangement will allow TWI and JITRI to carry out research, develop industrial technologies for JITRI, and also see JITRI staff receive management training at TWI.
18 representatives from JITRI visited TWI's headquarters near Cambridge to unveil the centre, where they were met by senior members of TWI staff, including Chief Executive Christoph Wiesner, Associate Directors Steve Shi and Arnaud Tronche, Commercial Manager Andrew Carey, Group Managers Jon Blackburn and Andrew Woloszyn and other TWI engineers.

The 3rd US China Innovation and Investment Summit (UCIS) and 2nd InnoSTARS Competition (Houston) Ended Successfully
On May 15 (local time), the China Innovation and Investment Summit (UCIS) and 2nd InnoSTARS Competition (Houston) ended successfully in Houston. At the Summit, JITRI President Liu Qing announced that JITRI would cooperate with Houston to jointly build the China-US Biomedical Technology Innovation Center and build a platform for cooperation and exchange between China and the United States. The local officials in Houston, the Chinese Consulate General in Houston and various participants highly praised the important role played by JITRI in the Summit and stated that JITRI has effectively promoted the accumulation of advantageous resources in the southern United States and contributed to Jiangsu’s industrial transformation and development.
The China-US Biomedical Innovation Center to be established by JITRI in Houston will serve as an efficient platform for promoting cooperation between Chinese and American enterprises, and will help Chinese enterprises and institutions to cooperate with U.S. enterprises and institutions on the basis of mutual benefit. One the one hand, it will help U.S. scientists set up companies. Many scientists in the United States have innovative technology and scientific research results, but they are not well connected with the industry and the financial sector, so the Innovation Center can move China’s industrial resources and investment forward to the doorstep of the United States, and then help them start companies and enter China after they develop to a certain stage. On the other hand, the Center will allow U.S. innovation enterprises to settle in Jiangsu in a better manner. Many innovative companies in the United States want to enter the Chinese market, but they are faced with many difficulties, so the Center will launch the training camps for US enterprises to settle in China, so that the enterprises can understand China’s policies and their development opportunities in China in the future.
