Matchmaking Tour - InnoHealth China

Matchmaking Tour in China

Symbol of the Matchmaking Tour of the InnoHealth China campaign.

The Matchmaking Tour in China which has been scheduled for early March 2020 had to be postponed considering the situation in China affected by COVID-19. The one-week tour will tentatively take place on September 21 - 25, 2020, once the situation has restored to normal.

The Matchmaking Tour will be 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, will exchange their ideas and innovation with Chinese representatives of health research institutions and companies.


The Matchmaking Tour in China will be supplemented by a preceding digital Pre-Matching on August 27 and 28, 2020. This is intended to help 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 will exchange initial ideas and test compatibility with potential Chinese partners.

Please find the official invitation to the Pre-Matching below:

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.

In this way, potential Chinese attendees will be identified to participate in the German R&D Tour.
