Abstract

I travelled to Beijing, China for the 2019 Workshop of Digital Innovation for Surgery Planning, Simulation and Treatment in China and the UK. Under the Researcher Links scheme (offered with the Newton Fund), Beihang University hosted the workshop in the Liaoning Hotel, Beijing from 16th-18th October 2019. The workshop was coordinated by Dr Xiaosong Yang (Bournemouth University) and Professor Junjun Pan (Beihang University). The Newton Fund (www.newtonfund.ac.uk) builds research and innovation partnerships with 17 partner countries to support their economic development and social welfare, and to develop their research and innovation capacity for long-term sustainable growth. This workshop was supported by the Newton Fund Researcher Links grant, delivered by the British Council, under the UK-China Research and Innovation Partnership. The workshop aimed to address the challenges in digital innovation in surgery by gathering, training and connecting Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from different disciplines. The workshop provided a platform for both UK and Chinese ECRs to expand their research and stimulate collaboration on research and development, technology transfer and commercialisation between the UK and China.
