Agenda

9:30 - 9:45  | Opening by Dr. Gang Lu

9:45 - 10:30  | Keynote panel: Is the world still open to China tech?

Last year on the Emerge stage, we talked about global expansion as the key to growth for China’s tech majors, hosting panels on opportunities in Southeast Asia and India. Today, most major Chinese apps are banned in India, and every week brings news about sweeping and restrictions from the US on companies like Huawei and Tiktok. Meanwhile, European countries and Australia have taken action against Huawei. Is the world open to China tech? Does it still make sense for Chinese companies to pursue global ambitions?

10:30 - 11:15 | Healthtech after Covid

In the socially distant world, many of us are trying online medical services for the first time. But healthcare innovators have been building these services for years. What are the opportunities for investors as e-health takes off? And will it improve health care for patients?

11:15 - 11:45 | InnoSpace Awards Ceremony

presented by Shanghai Makers:


Shanghai Makers is a global maker competition hosted by the Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai Municipality, organized by InnoSpace since 2016. In 2020, the 5th Shanghai Makers is held under the theme of “Industrial Intelligence”. The Commercial Track, Industrial Track, and Smart Medical Precision Track are held at the same time, attracting nearly 200 outstanding teams to take apart in the competition. The competition was jointly launched online and offline and took more than three months of training, development, and roadshow. After a series of competitions, 25 teams were awarded First Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize, Special Prize, and Merit Award, entries cover medical, industrial, retail, automotive, logistics, and other industries, starting from the industrial, gathering the strength of creators, to promote the process of intelligent innovation.


11:45 - 12:30 | Foodtech: How technology is shaping our appetite

Plant-based proteins are not all new to Asians, who have been eating meat-like plant proteins for millennia. Today, as Silicon Valley investors are applying technology in a bid to disrupt the food industry, Asians, China is taking a new look at food businesses. What is the role of technology on our plates? What’s beyond Beyond Meat, and how will it shape our evolving appetites?

14:00 - 14:45 | China: blockchain superpower?

China is pushing ahead on blockchain. In October 2019, Xi Jinping publicly endorsed blockchain, calling on China to seize the moment and become a world leader in the technology. Local governments have rushed to follow his lead, and the Blockchain Services Network has expanded China’s global reach in blockchain. Where do Chinese companies stand in terms of blockchain innovation? How is the government supporting them? Will China’s approach to technology dominate the global industry?

14:45 - 15:30 | Electric vehicles: What’s next as the industry recovers

It’s been a dramatic year in electric vehicles. Sales plunged after the government scaled back a subsidies policy that had fueled the industry’s growth—and then took a second beating from Covid-19. But the second half of the year has seen a reversal as EV majors are creeping toward profits, and even enjoying successful stock listings. Is the worst over? Where is the industry going in the year ahead?

15:30 - 16:15 | Does live-streaming growth have a ceiling?

From low-budget, grassroots origins, live-streaming has become the biggest entertainment and marketing story of 2020, closely intertwined with e-commerce, short videos, and gaming. How has the boom changed China’s retail and supply chain networks? Are Covid windfall users turning into permanent fans? And is there brand value in live-streaming, or is it just about sales?
