Over the last ten years, significant changes have been taking place within the Chinese economy and market. At an industrial level, we have seen the progressive growth in added value of the output produced by local companies. This change was sealed in 2016 with the launch of the 13th Five-Year Plan, which places increasingly greater emphasis on innovation and respect for the environment.
Over the same period, the presence of Politecnico di Milano in China has also been evolving.
From its first important agreement with TongJi University (2006), our university has consolidated strategic partnerships with the C9 universities, has opened - in 2012 - a Chinese WFOE in Beijing and now intends to open a branch in Shanghai together with creating a Joint School of Industrial Design and Innovation Centre in Xi’an (together with Xi’an Jiao Tong University, April 2016).
In this framework, on June 16th, Politecnico di Milano is organising a conference in Shanghai to set out the situation concerning the challenges that companies based in China will face in the coming years and how the University can play an important supporting role.
It is also the occasion to celebrate the presence of Politecnico di Milano in China and at the same time outline - together with the large industrial community in the Shanghai area - the future challenges that can be met by the University working alongside these companies.
