IPwe and XJTLU establish IP Research Institute in China’s Greater Bay Area



On March 30, IPwe commenced the IPwe-XJTLU (Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University) IP Research Institute, a key collaborative project for IPwe’s Chinese operations during the 2021 Guangzhou International Investment Conference.

A number of Chinese government officials were in attendance, including District Mayor, Dong Ke, who spoke of the economic and social development of Nansha. Ke stated that Nansha, located in the geometric center of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, has seen its regional GDP increase by more than 70%, becoming a key catalyst of growth for the Guangdong region. In recent years, Nansha has become a regional hub for the region, set to carry this momentum to empower innovation and development, and become the “innovation beacon” within the Bay Area.


One of Bay Area’s Regional Innovation Hubs

In March this year, the Guangzhou-Hong-Kong-Macau Belt and Road Investment Enterprises Cooperation Forum will debut in Nansha. The forum will be a key platform in the GBA to link enterprises in both China and the countries along the Belt and Road for further collaboration and support from the international community.

Key Innovative Bay Area projects in the Bay Area include the IPwe-XJTLU IP Research Institute, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University Innovation and Education Institute, Zhongkang Data National Headquarters Project, ACG New Cultural and Creative Industry Headquarters Project, among others. The Innovative Bay Area project will effectively promote quality and diversified upgrade of many industries in Nansha, creating a vibrant city and highlighting the culture and identity of the region.

As an important part of Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University’s ‘Innovation 3.0’ initiative, IPwe-XJTLU IP Research Institute will be jointly established by IPwe, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and Hong Kong Management Association (HKMA). The roadmap for development include the Greater Bay Area Global IP Data Center, International Technology Transfer Center and Transformation Platform, and the International IP Ecological Think Tank.
