Description

Dear friends,

The Harvard Club of Dallas and Tsinghua Alumni Association of Dallas-Fort Worth invite you to join this FREE event on US-China technology related challenges and opportunities in business. The seat is very limited so please reserve ASAP if interested. Parking is free too.

In this event, six panelists from a range of sectors/ functions, including nanotech/ materials science, telecom, computing, energy/power, IP law, and investing, will provide their input on key topics at the intersection of technology and business as pertains to the US and China. Please join us for this joint discussion between the Harvard and Tsinghua Clubs. The aim will be to cover both hot topics in the US-China business and technology space, such as technology transfer and IP protection, as well as look at the relative levels of technology in each country, competition, and potential cooperation. Discussion between the two clubs will seek to achieve deeper understanding of the issues than we typically see in the press. Ideally, recommendations for addressing the problems will emerge from these discussions.

Topics include: tech transfer, IP protection/theft, tech acquisition via investment, security concerns with installation of foreign technology, relative levels in science and technology in various sectors, future projections of relative levels, drivers of relative levels (policy, institutional, social, financial), recommendations for increased competitiveness in science and technology, opportunities and recommendations for US-China win-win cooperation in science and technology, and attractive technology investments in each country, given the trends.
