Businesses from the UK and China are to partner on innovative projects, including smart cities, climate and manufacturing.

A total of 10 firms have won funding from Innovate UK and the Science and Technology Department of Shanghai Municipality (STCSM).

Two of the winning companies are MatSurf from Cumbria and Xinke Environmental Protection Science & Technology Company, which are creating a range of intelligent filter systems to tackle air pollution.

That includes exhaust and factory emissions.

Dr Ruth McKernan, Innovate UK’s Chief Executive said: “Collaboration is essential to innovation and through this competition we are backing some exceptional UK businesses to work with partners in Shanghai and take advantage of the opportunity to help shape the future of global technology.”
