IDC welcomed the New Year with a mission to China headed by Dr Eric Zimmerman, the Head of Research and Global Engagement. Eric, Nili Stein from Executive and Continuing Education, and Christian Jowers visited important institutions in Beijing, Jinan and Shanghai to deepen our collaboration with existing partners and foster new ones. These included:
Guanghua School of Management at Peking University
China Central Party School
Shanghai Business School
Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business (CKGSB)
China University of Communications
Importantly, IDC also met with key figures at the Israeli Embassy and the Israel-China Chamber of Commerce to further enhance our global reach. Internationalization is at the heart of IDC, and whether we speak about academic faculty, student exchange, joint research, technology transfer or international student body, we do so within a global context. To that end IDC works closely with embassies and governmental organisations around the world.
2017 marks the 25th anniversary of international relations between China and Israel. Such a landmark will be celebrated throughout the year and IDC will play an important role in developing existing ties, creating new ones, fostering communication, and sharing knowledge for the next 25 years.
Happy year of the Rooster!
