How China innovates: the natural ecosystem and its limits explained

Oct 14, 2022 11:30 - 12:30


This is an event organised by China.Table

What are the elements explaining China's extraordinary economic development? Surely, the centralized planning of the government cannot be solely responsible for China's innovation progress.

The academic study “Demystifying China's Innovation Machine” describes it as a complex, interdependent ecosystem and concludes that the future success of China’s innovation will depend on continuing policy pragmatism, mass entrepreneurship and innovation, and the development of the ‘new infrastructures’.

What is the assessment of the current innovation potential in China—with a central committee seeking more control over the population and an economy continuously weakened by zero-covid lockdowns?

This event will hold a discussion of the ecosystem of innovation in China, it's limits and prospects for the next few years with:

David M. Gann, Professor at Oxford University and Co-Author of the book “Demystifying China's innovation machine”
Jeroen Groenewegen-Lau, Head of Program of “Science, Technology and Innovation” at Mercator Institute for Chinese Studies
