China's Public, Private, People Approach to Innovation

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q3 2019

In recent years China is continuously challenging the West for the top spot on the global innovation leader board. With a face-paced innovation process that is counter intuitive to the traditional stage-gate approach developed and deployed in the West, China is quickly transforming itself into a global innovation leader - shedding its dated copycat stereotype and quickly transforming into the copied. At the root of this success is the fast changing socio-economic trends coupled with access to cutting edge technologies. In a unique public-private-people partnership, the government, private sector, and the masses together are enabling the country in bringing new innovations into the market at lighting speed.
