Matchmaking Tour - InnoHealth China

Matchmaking Tour in China

Symbol of the Matchmaking Tour of the InnoHealth China campaign.

The one-week Matchmaking Tour in China took virtually place on March 15 - 19, 2021. The tour was organized by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in cooperation with the German-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Beijing and Guangzhou, and the Research Institute of Tsinghua University in Shenzhen. The selected representatives of the German Mittelstand and/or start-up companies and research institutions, paired in Research-SME-Tandems, exchanged their ideas and innovation with Chinese representatives of health research institutions and companies.

The Matchmaking Tour...

... aims to facilitate the dialogue between Chinese and German leading researchers, post-doctorates, entrepreneurs, scientists and university representatives of the healthcare sector. The 1-week-program covers a wide spectrum of information about local opportunities related to the healthcare sector in Germany. The Matchmaking Tour features various presentations, idea workshops, showcases from demonstrators as well as the possibility to network with local stakeholders and representatives. All participants of InnoHealth China - Chinese and German researchers and entrepreneurs - will have the opportunity to enter in deeper exchange.



The Matchmaking Tour in China has been supplemented by a preceding digital Pre-Matching on August 27 and 28, 2020. This helped the Research-SME-Tandems to get to know potential Chinese partners - and vice versa - in advance of the Matchmaking Tour. As a complementary preparation for the local networking events during the Matchmaking Tour, the participants of the pre-matching exchanged initial ideas and tested compatibility with potential Chinese partners. In this way, potential Chinese attendees can be identified to participate in the German R&D Tour.
