Taking part in fair to tap demand

FOREIGN universities participated in the China International Industry Fair for the first time this year as they seek to transfer technology to the domestic market to tap growing demand.

South Korea's Hanyang University displayed their patented Electrovox technology, which can be applied to noise-free cell phones, Bluetooth headsets and hearing aids. The technology is used in South Korea and the university took part in the fair as it would give it an opportunity to explore the Chinese market, officials said.

A total of 458 university research projects are on display at the fair, a rise of 8 percent from last year. A total of 1,869 companies, with more than a quarter from overseas, are expected to take part in this year's fair, which will end on Saturday.

The area of exhibition booths taken by schools rose 9 percent to 4,360 square meters at this year's fair compared to last year's event.

The Shanghai Education Commission plans to have a permanent pavilion in Yangpu District in December, which could be a platform for technology trading between schools and enterprises.

The pavilion will be a platform to match universities' laboratory research programs with high-technology enterprises, said Wang Qi, the commission's deputy director.
