Welcome to the Conference

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Symposium on "Law & Business of Entrepreneurship and Innovation" which will be held in Hong Kong on 21 January 2017. This is a one-day conference with a theme on legal and business problems surrounding entrepreneurship and innovation. As entrepreneurship and innovation policy has become a main drive for economic growth in Asia and globally, it is timely and essential for policymakers, practitioners, and the academia to collaborate on relevant issues.

CUHK Law is delighted to co-organise the Symposium with Center of Financial and Economic Law and Graduate Institute of Technology, Innovation and Intellectual Property Management at National Chengchi University in Taiwan. There will be six sessions, focusing on issues ranging from FinTech, blockchain, innovation management, intellectual property, company and financial law, technology transfer and business incubation in the university setting, to entrepreneurship education and policy. We are pleased to have renowned experts share their research and experience in the Symposium. The official language of the meetings is English, except that session V will be conducted in Mandarin Chinese (Putonghua).

Attendance is free of charge but is reserved on a first-come-first-served basis. Seats are limited and priority will be given to staff and students at CUHK Law Faculty and our supporting organization CUHK Business School.

We look forward to welcoming you at CUHK Faculty of Law.

Prof. Robin Huang, Executive Director of the Center for Financial Regulation and Economic Development (CFRED), CUHK
