The workshop raised important issues regarding the interface between marketing and innovation for the Chinese high technology firms. These include:

  1. What are the gaps in the market that the indigenous companies are currently unable to fill (i.e. remain the territory of the MNEs)?
  2. What are the differences between the type of innovative capabilities for firms that compete at the lower end of the market and the type of innovative capabilities for firms compete at the higher end of the market?
  3. What are the proactive roles of users (both business users and end-users) in the innovation process?

Between October and December 2008, Dr Qing Wang, the Director of MICE network, organised a number of doctoral workshops on international journal publishing at the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation of Tsinghua School of E&M and Zhejiang Management School of Zhejiang University in China.

These workshops are aimed to raise the general standard of young Chinese researchers' ability and skills to publish in leading international journals.
