As part of the Future Cities Catapult nquiringminds recently visited China in order to promote collaboration and innovation between UK and Chinese companies. CEO Nick Allot commented:

nquiringminds were invited to attend the mission. Four regions of China in five days: it was a packed but fascinating agenda.

What is clear: cities/urban centres will be both the physical nexus and the organisation catalyst to address almost every global challenge facing us today: energy, transport, housing, health, infrastructure etc.

International collaboration is going to be critical both for experimental innovation, but as important, execution and rollout.

This mission provided an excellent foundation for setting up the framework for such important collaborations

Congratulations and thanks to the organisers.
