Today, 26th of August 2019, we received a visit from representatives of the Dapeng District Delegation of the Chinese city of Shenzhen.
Shenzhen is a coastal city in southern China, adjacent to Hong Kong. It is the Chinese city with the highest per capita GDP and it was voted by Forbes China as the most innovative city in Chinese mainland. There was thus a clear common focus area between Barcelona Health Hub and Shenzhen; innovation.
The visit began with a short presentation about Barcelona Health Hub and a tour around the facilities led by our President, Cristian Pascual. After this, we encouraged our members to use this visit as a networking opportunity. We also offered members looking at the Chinese market as an opportunity for expansion, to present their start-ups to our visitors. Three of our start-up members presented their projects: Icària Medical (Ignasi Heras), Evolutionware (Adriana Freitas) and Psious (Xavier Palomer).
Finally, the visit was concluded after our visitors presented their main aims in the city of Shenzhen, the Dapeng District, their Bio-Valley and the Southern University of Science and Technology Inceisa Synergetic Innovation Institute.
