PARTEQ brings Chinese delegation to campus
A delegation from the People's Republic of China is on campus today as part of a Canadian visit hosted by the university's technology transfer office, PARTEQ Innovations.
The five visitors represent the Innovation Fund for Small Technology-based Firms (Innofund), a special fund established by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology to support innovation activities of technology-based small and medium-sized businesses. As part of their five-day visit to Canada, the group will meet with representatives of Queen's and other Kingston organizations tonight at a special reception to mark the signing of a collaboration agreement between Innofund and PARTEQ.
Innofund focuses on promising innovative technologies in electronics and information technology, biotechnology and medicine, advanced materials, automation technology, environmental resources, new energy and energy conservation.
