China: feasibility study with support

JITRI offers a package to overseas companies working in high tech.

The background is that many overseas companies are interested in entering the Chinese market, but very often they will need product localization, research & development, and to adjust their product to the Chinese market as well as develop new products or technologies for the Chinese market. The objective of this package is to help foreign companies set up their R&D or technical support center in China.

The package is comprised of two steps:

Step 1:

A. If the company is evaluated and approved by JITRI, they will be offered up to 1 million RMB in funding to work on a feasibility study about their future landing in China. 40% of this funding can be used for salaries for people working on this, and the other 60% can be used for travel expenses, market research, expert consultancy expenses, etc. The main functions of this feasibility could include:

• Building your future project team in China
• Researching the relevant industry
• Completing a detailed business plan and budget

B. Companies could choose to set up their representative office in one of the three cities, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Nanjing. JITRI will cover between half and all of the market price rent cost. The office is to be set up in an innovation community, for instance, a 390.000 m2 space available in Suzhou. In Suzhou, you will be able to sit next to leading research institutes and companies like Haldor-Topsoe.

Step 2:

After 6-12 months, the feasibility study will be finished. Your company can decide, on the basis of the results, if you want to set up R&D or a technical support center in China, or if the timing is not right. You will have the option to submit the detailed business plan, and have it evaluated by JITRI, together with global experts. If the project is approved for support, your company will hold the major share (60-80%) of the future project company, while the majority of funding (about 80-90%) is provided by JITRI.

Current successful cases for this model include Haldor-Topsoe ( and Sioux (, and the program has succeeded in capturing the attention of Airbus, Johnson-Matthey, ARaymond, and others.

JITRI and Haldor-Topsoe collaboration
Portfolio Projects are past projects that are finalized and no longer active. They serve as a showcase of what Innovation House members have achieved in the past and as an inspiration for future projects. The story began with the opening ceremony of Innovation House China-Denmark in September 2016. Dr. Qing Liu, President of JITRI, and Dr. Fei Chen, Vice President of Haldor-Topsoe met at the opening ceremony. They started a discussion to explore the potential collaboration between JITRI and Topsoe. Soon after, the Topsoe management team visited JITRI headquarters in Nanjing in December 2016 to discuss more details about the potential to establish a joint R&D center in China. In February 2018, JITRI, Topsoe, and Suzhou Xiangcheng high-speed rail new city signed an agreement to create a joint venture company for the future R&D center. In December 2018, the JITRI-Topsoe joint R&D center is officially opened. 5100 m2 of renovated lab space are ready for R&D activities. A pilot plant facility is well equipped. There are more than 30 employees in the center, most of them researchers with master's or Ph.D. degrees. Several new technologies focus on clean energy are currently incubating in the center, including new battery material, air pollution control by catalyst, and heavy oil hydroprocessing. The joint R&D center is located in the Yangtze River Delta International R&D Community in the Xiangcheng district, Suzhou. Haldor-Topsoe mentioned that it is important to have a well-equipped research facility that is much closer to their clients in China so they can quickly adjust their product and solution accordingly. It is also beneficial to share the risk of new technology development with trusted partners. Suzhou provides a location with good infrastructure and an abundant source of talented employees for R&D. It only takes 23 minutes to travel to Shanghai. JITRI is willing to assist overseas companies if they are interested to explore the possibility to set up their new technology R&D center in China. Funding, lab space, and talents will be provided to help the new technology incubation.

Kronborg Stories Untold

Danish history as it has never been told before

14 true tales from the people who tend to one of the world’s most famous castles, and 14 dramatized tales of destiny from the last 600 years of Danish history. In total: 28 tales of Kronborg Castle – the home of Shakespeare’s mad prince Hamlet and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Kronborg Stories Untold: Tales and Destinies from the Depths of Danish History aims to give voice to the people who rarely make it into history books. We want to give the painter, the bricklayer, the mason, the cannon master, the caretaker, the guard, and the cleaner the platform they deserve.

These are the people who have dedicated their craftsmanship, professionalism, passion, attention – and a large part of their lives – to the maintenance of one of the most important Renaissance castles in the world.

The stories are currently published as a 304-page, hardcover coffee table book in Danish and in English. A Chinese translation is underway, as well as an interactive children´s project and several exhibitions of photos from the book.

In August 2021, an exhibition of 30 photos and quotes from the book are hosted at the Yinjing Art Museum in Chongqing, China. 

You can find the book here, og finde den på dansk, her.

For this project, we are interested in:

  • Partners to enable publication, promotion, and sales in the Chinese market
  • Locations that are interested in an exhibition based on the book

Develop 3D printing raw materials that meet the mechanical properties of invisible tooth aligner
Angelalign is looking for partner who can provide the special material technology for the invisible tooth aligner.. Because of the technical particularity of the prepared aligner, the molecular weight of the cured material is much lower than The molecular weight of the hot-pressed film, so the corresponding mechanical properties are weak.
