Flinders University participated in a healthcare ‘matchmaking’ session in China as part of a South Australian government-led delegation aimed at strengthening relationships with Chinese healthcare professionals, making new introductions and providing new opportunities for collaboration in health care, scientific research and hospital management.
The South Australia Project Matchmaking Session of the China-Australia Health and Life Sciences Summit was held in the Bank of Guangzhou Tower in Guangzhou on 16 July 2018.
A total of 12 South Australian health-focused organisations attended the event, together with government officials including the Hon David Ridgway MLC Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment and Jason Robertson, Australian Consul-General in Guangzhou.
Carmela Sergi, Health Partnerships Director at Flinders, attended the event and said it was a valuable opportunity to meet potential partners and valuable contacts in China, and showcase the University’s capabilities in medical devices, biotechnology, hi-tech medicine and digital health, and in disability and aged care.
“The University’s excellent research capabilities were very well received at the event by the health and life sciences market in China,” she says.
