London (People's Daily) - The final round of the Chinese Students and Scholars Association’s (CSSA) 30th Anniversary High-level Entrepreneurship Challenge took place in London on Sunday.
This year’s competition began in May and attracted nearly 500 teams from Cambridge, Oxford, London, Birmingham and other parts of the UK.
Project in high-tech fields that included information technology, artificial intelligence, new energy and materials, biological medicine, and intelligent manufacturing were on display.
After several intense rounds of competition, team Lazer XZ won the top prize with a proposal for a company dedicated to manufacturing new liquid crystal laser equipment.
“Both China and the UK treasure communication and cooperation in culture, education, innovation and other fields, I hope the competition can boost more high-level entrepreneurship between the two countries,” said Minister Counselor Wang Yongli from the Education Section of the Chinese Embassy.
To stimulate mutual learning and innovation for entrepreneurs from China and the UK, and to pave the road for overseas Chinese students who want to establish advanced technology businesses back home, the CSSA-UK has hosted the entrepreneurial competition since 2005.
Besides its long history, broad participation and the scope of the competition have made it the most influential entrepreneur contest among Chinese students and scholars throughout the UK.
