Two of China’s leading STEM application institutions launched an innovation competition on October 16th in an event that showcased a vast expanse of industrial technology including space technology, industrial vehicle applications, smart manufacturing, information technology, new materials, and highlighting examples of military and civil technology integration.

Winners of the Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, which is organized by the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (BUAA) and Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), will be announced in December. The competition was first held in 2017.

Offering up to RMB 500,000 (around $72,000) to winners and potential access to investment from alumni, the competition aims to discover early-stage high-tech applications, and emerge as a platform where “innovators meet investors,” according to organizers.
