On November 6, we coordinated matchmaking meetings together with the partners of the International Technology Transfer Network (ITTN) in the Chinese province of Hebei as a follow-up activity of the Zhongguancun Forum, the internationalization program which took place in August and September.

Hebei was the first step in a series of online and offline meetings that will involve some of the best Made in Italy technologies selected as part of the program.

Promoted by the Hebei Provincial Department of Science and Technology, the meetings on 6 November saw the participation of six startups from Israel, Japan, Italy, Germany and England on the theme of scientific and technological cooperation.

The startups presented their solutions to a large audience of investors, companies and local institutions. Italy was represented by ISCLEANAIR, a scaleup active in the sustainable development sector that introduced its innovative Air Pollution Abatement (APA) technology.

Four thematic areas were addressed: AI & Advanced High-Tech Manufacturing; Biotechnology & Health-Related Innovations; New Energy, Sustainable Development and Green Innovation; and Smart Transportation & ICT.
