Led by the company’s vice president, He Liwen, the JITRI delegation signed an agreement with TWI that would see them returning to Cambridge in the future to receive a training course covering effective management of technology and research and development. In parallel, JITRI’s CEO, Professor Qing Liu, signed a TWI membership agreement at their corporate headquarters in Nanjing.
The third visit came in September, when a group under the Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) umbrella travelled to TWI for a three-day management training course. This time the visit was from the AECC Beijing Institute of Aeronautical Materials (BIAM), a scientific research organisation originally founded in 1956 that employs more than 2000 staff.
During the three-day course, which was tailored to the company’s requirements, five senior staff from AECC BIAM learned about TWI’s approach to running a successful business. The training covered areas including laboratory management, staff structure and performance, finances, innovation and project management.
TWI is pleased to be working with some of China’s most prominent aerospace corporations and would welcome visits from any other organisations interested in collaborating on management training or research projects.
