DISCOVERING CHINA’S INNOVATIVE POWER
 
First copy, then optimize: China has a rather dubious reputation when it comes to the appropriation of Western technologies. But is this image still justified? There are indeed indications that the country has become significantly more innovative recently. In some areas, such as cashless payments or electro-mobility, China is even a pioneer. What are main factors behind China’s innovative rise? In what ways does China differ from Western systems of innovation? What role do public-private networks play? The China Global Center at Jacobs University has invited several China experts and innovation scholars. Come and join the debate.
