Snow night of February 10th saw the celebration of the Lantern Festival held by HiTech


Innovation and Oxford Chinese Life Scientists Society (OCLSS). Chinese students and scholars in life science, as well as guests from industry, gathered in Richard Doll Building, old road campus to enjoyed the wonderful moment.

Oxfordshire, based on the University, is an internationally recognized centre of excellence for biomedical and clinical research and technology transfer. Among academics, researchers, clinicians, industry participants and entrepreneurs, the contribution of Chinese is obvious. At the night, we were honored to have professors from University of Oxford, entrepreneurs from local Biotech companies, and Technology Transfer Manager from Oxford University Innovation with us. Professor Xin Lu gave the welcome and Prof. Zhengming Chen gave the close marking.

Research speed dating is one of the key part of the whole celebration. Everyone had a 3-minute chat with the one sitting opposite before the sign of exchanging position. This one-hour activity helped us to familiar with each other, allowing us to talk with professors face to face and heart by heart, and to enjoy snacks and Tang-yuan together in this snow flurries night.

Dont worry if you unfortunately did not manage to attend! Let’s review these photos and let the memory recall.

Kick-off Meeting of HiTECH

On October. 23rd 2016, the Leeds branch of the China-UK HiTECH Innovation & Entrepreneurship Forum held its kick-off meeting for management team. Composed of the excellent academic scholars from the subjects of biology, medicines, electronics and engineering, the management team witnessed the start-up of the branch, looked back at the achievements of HiTECH in the past year and discussed the prospects and challenges in the future.

Mr. Xujun Luo, the General Secretary of the branch, hosted the meeting. Dr. Hongseng Peng, vice chairman and founder of HiTECH, introduced the history of HiTECH. The forum has grown into a community of over 1,400 members, which has hosted twelve high-rated interacted events and attracted more than 300 excellent technological projects over the past year. The China-UK HiSTAR Innovation & Entrepreneurship Competition successfully bridged gaps of technological transfer between two countries. With the support of government, professors, businessmen and investment institutions, HiTECH represents the new trend of technical innovation and transfer of UK and China. Mrs. Ying Wang, Chairman of the Leeds branch, introduced the prospects of the landing of HiTECH in Leeds. Based on the excellent academic resources of University of Leeds, the branch would offer a cross-disciplinary and multi-functional platform including information, training and technological support. We believed that such cross-regional and cross-disciplinary communication could prove more fruitful.


One-year Anniversary of HiTECH

On November 14th 2016, HiTECH held its first-year anniversary in Leeds branch. HiTECH’s creators, management team, volunteers and students, academic staff gathered together for food and games to celebrate the first-year anniversary of the community.

Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property

On January 25th 2017, HITECH Leeds Innovation held the training of research transfer and intellectual property (IP) protection. More than 40 students from the School of Law, Engineering, Computing, Chemistry and Transport Studies at University of Leeds attended the event. The event was hosted by David Yu from School of Law. We had Professor Long Ling, Director of the Colour and Polymer Science group at the University, and Dr. Jason Teng, Senior Patent Attorney at Potter Clarkson, as the speakers to explain the relevant regulations and rules of research transfer and intellectual property protection.

Professor Lin introduced the latest development and application of the polymer science in medicines, banknote printing and environmental protection achieved by the University and his research team. Notably, the research team found out that the dehydrated and desalted colouring material could colour the cotton fabrics with no additives under 60ai???. The conclusion would not only cut the cost of manufacturing and reduce the emission of sewage. Professor Lin also raised suggestions and advice in research transfer, and encouraged researchers to apply their researches into every field. Dr. Jason Teng introduced in detail the methods of obtaining intellectual property, the significance of trademark and the procedure of application.Ai?? He also raised some examples to introduce the benefits and application of intellectual property protection. The attendees raised the questions after the speech.

Miss. Ying Wang, the Chairwoman of HITECH Leeds Innovation, introduced the motto and prospects of the community and encouraged the attendeesai??i?? participation.
