50 participants including leading international and Chinese experts in innovation, and R&D leaders in the international and Chinese business community will engage in a “roundtable-style discussion” to explore the real and substantive changes occurring in China’s innovation landscape.

All 50 attendees are expected to contribute to the conversation. To help distill the insights that emerge from this session, a select group of participants will be invited to contribute short articles offering their reflections on the discussion. These articles will be gathered for publication in a book for broader distribution at a later date.
