TWI Welcomes JITRI Delegates for Three-Day Visit

Tue, 09 July, 2019

TWI welcomed delegates from the Jiangsu Industrial Technology Research Institute (JITRI) to our headquarters near Cambridge. The three-day visit came as part of an ongoing programme of work drawing on TWI’s technical knowledge and experience of managing technologies and operating a technology-focused business.

JITRI’s vice president, Paul Burrows, was among the 13 visitors who took part in a training course detailing the effective management of technology and research and development.

This visit follows a 2017 TWI membership agreement signed by JITRI CEO, Professor Qing Liu, at their corporate headquarters in Nanjing.

JITRI is a governmental research and technology organisation created with the aim of promoting research and development activities in China’s Jiangsu province. With a focus on bridging the gap between fundamental technology research and its commercialization, JITRI has 47 specialty research institutes and employs over 7,000 personnel.

This is just part of the ongoing work between TWI and Chinese business and you can find out more about JITRI here.
