Understanding the economy and entrepreneurial mindset in China

The FAU Shenzhen Fall School is run by FAU in cooperation with the renowned Peking University and offers an attractive training opportunity focussing on ‘Medical Innovations, 5G and AI’. From 4 to 12 September 2019, participants were able to boost their entrepreneurial skills with a unique range of workshops, lectures, networking events and company visits, where they had the chance to interact with influential change makers. Students from various areas, the programme manager at the FAU Digital Academy Klaus Konrad and Prof. Dr. Heinrich Sticht, professor of bioinformatics at FAU, reported back on their experiences via, for example, the FAU Digital Tech Academy (DTA) Facebook channel. Participants applied online to the DTA and some were granted a scholarship.
