I've recently returned from Beijing, where I spoke at the launch of the OECD's review of China's innovation system. Most of the movers and shakers in Chinese S&T policy were present, and there was some lively debate about the balance between 'indigenous innovation' and the need for more international collaboration.

I've written a comment piece in today's China Daily which summarises what I said at the OECD event, building on the arguments in our Atlas of Ideas report. The National Science Foundation of China and the British Embassy in Beijing have also produced a Chinese translation of the Atlas reports, which we released at the OECD event. 

I then travelled south to Guangzhou for a separate event with the Guangzhou Association of Science and Technology. This picked up a bit of local media interest. I spoke alongside Adrian Ely from the STEPS Centre at Sussex University, who has blogged the event here.
