Innovation, as both a strategy and a key factor within the Chinese economic model, was the main issue raised by the academic, Dongmin Chen, during the roundtable “The relationship between innovation, entrepreneurship and intellectual property in a globalized economy”. Chen, Dean of the School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Peking University, spoke about the transformations within the Chinese economic system over the last 30 years, as well as the integral relationship between government and universities. This situation, he explained, has facilitated the application of an education system focused on innovation and entrepreneurship.
The second presentation of the roundtable was given by the President of Crystal Lagoons and AmCham Chile Director, Fernando Fischmann. By explaining the trajectory of his company in recent years, Fischmann demonstrated the importance of innovation in entrepreneurship. Likewise, he discussed how Crystal Lagoons will be applying its artificial lagoon technology to the process of cooling water for thermoelectric power plants.
