In the framework of the Chinese ”One Belt & One Road“ initiative the Government of Sichuan Province supports enterprises seeking cooperation partners in Europe and other countries. On the European side the event is organized by Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum within the EU-funded project Dragon-STAR Plus, which aims at supporting the policy dialogue and cooperation between European and Chinese actors in research and innovation.

The aim of the brokerage event is to bring together European and Chinese research and industry representatives in the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) with relation to advanced manufacturing and Industry 4.0 for potential collaboration.
