Submitted by Juliette Crowley on 02 December 2019

it@cork participated on an annual state visit to the Jiangsu province region.

 It was particularly great to visit:

  • China Europe Innovation Centre
  • Cambridge University - Nanjing Centre of Technology and Innovation
  • China (Jaingsu) Free Trade Zone 
  • Huawei Joint Validation Lab – Nanjing

It was also great to meet Enterprise Irelandand Consulate Of Ireland in Shanghai. From a technology perspective, we discussed collaboration opportunities in the areas of talent exchange, start-up internationalisation, localisation supports and education. The level and scale of innovation in this region is exceptional with Nanjing Software Valley hosting +2,400 tech companies and employing +245k (China's largest ICT cluster). A big thank you to Cork County Council, Irish Consulate and Enterprise Ireland for making this trip such a success.
