China's R&D spending continues to grow year on year. Since 2009, the country has been the second in the world in R&D spending, behind only the United States. How to make the most of Shanghai's favorable R&D policy environment is critical know-how for American companies operating in China.
The workshop will focus be on general R&D trends, regulations, and incentives in Shanghai. The session will begin with a broad rundown of Shanghai R&D policies in Chinese by Sun Zhongfeng, Chief of the Strategic Planning Division at the Shanghai S&T Commission. Following this, Deloitte Innovation Department and Greenhouse Partner Steven Feng will give a presentation on trends in Shanghai's R&D ecosystem. Finally, Steven will join Dow R&D Director for Asia Pacific Dr. David H. Guo on a panel to discuss their China R&D labs.
This event is an AmCham Shanghai Government Policy Support (GPS) workshop.
