Technology firms are being urged to take advantage of a support programme designed to break down barriers to establishing business links with China.

Lancaster University has devised the Lancaster China Catalyst Programme – a two-year engagement programme providing more than £70,000 of assistance to technology-focused companies that forge research partnerships with Chinese companies.

The university is looking for businesses to take part in the second cohort of the programme, which starts in 2015.

A special launch event is being held between 5.30pm and 8pm on Monday, October 27 at the Lancaster University Management School.

Mark Bacon, Director of Business Partnerships and Enterprise at Lancaster University’s Faculty of Science and Technology, said: “We are actively looking for dynamic technology-focused UK businesses that are interested in exploring the potential of establishing links in the world’s biggest growing market and innovating new products and services with the support of a leading university.
