Torch Innovation Week

About Torch Innovation Week

In April 2016, UNSW and the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) of China signed an agreement to establish the very first industry led ‘Torch Innovation Precinct’ outside of China at UNSW. The Precinct was officially launched in August 2016 with Phase one focusing on the development of research collaboration and commercialisation between UNSW researchers and Chinese enterprises. It has nearly been two years and Torch at UNSW have made solid progress in pipeline and partnerships development, engagement with industry and knowledge exchange. 

To celebrate the success of Phase One and kick off the development of the Phase Two physical precinct, as a Torch flagship event, the second Torch Innovation Week will be held from 29th October to 2nd November 2018 at UNSW Sydney Kensington Campus.
