On May 8th, TusPark will host the TusLink U.S. – China Innovation Ecosystem Conference to cultivate and develop a rich ecosystem of innovation exchange between the United States and China. The goal is to develop a platform of exchange for science and technological innovation, improve cross border cooperation, and develop channels for investments to flow between China and the U.S.

As part of the Michigan China Week, the TusLink U.S. – China Innovation Ecosystem Conference will interconnect a plethora of critical resources from government agencies, enterprises, science parks, accelerators, and entrepreneurial communities in the U.S. and China. As a result, Chinese-U.S. entrepreneurs and investors in fields such as mobility, fintech, biosciences, robotics, and medical devices will thrive via partnership in pursuit of radical and mutually beneficial development.
