Background:

The preliminary and semi-final rounds are to be held both in China and Britain, followed by the final competition in London October this year. This contest would achieve an unprecedented height in size and standard in the history of all entrepreneurship challenges around the UK.

Recently, emphasis from government has been exerted on the absorption and importation of intellects overseas, thus relevant policies that encourage high-level talents to develop entrepreneurship back in China are launched in succession. Taking advantage of opportunities and advancing with times, the association hopes to fully impel intellectual communications and entrepreneurship cooperation between the two nations through this competition, hence to realize the collaboration of advantageous resources between foreign high-end scientific and researching projects and domestic development in economy, science, technology, and humanity in all provinces and areas.
