Hong Kong Carbon Capture Innovation Centre, 24 Jan 8.30am

We are pleased to share with you the opportunity to meet with Dr Shelley Zhou, newly appointed CEO of HKCCI (Hong Kong Carbon Capture Innovation). Come along on Tuesday 24 January between 8.30-10.30am at ECCI for a business breakfast and networking event.

The Scotland-Hong Kong centre to which Dr Zhou has been appointed as CEO, builds upon a 2013 memorandum of understanding between the Hong Kong Government and Scottish Government to develop closer partnerships to address the key challenges of climate change and a lower carbon economy. The Team Scotland Centre is led by the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation (ECCI) and is funded by the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Napier University, BRE Scotland and Scottish Development International.

The centre aims to share and develop best practice with the Hong Kong government agencies, academic and business partners for the future of low-carbon technologies in Hong Kong. Low carbon experts will focus on projects including sustainable buildings, mobility, pollution and waste issues, energy efficiency and carbon monitoring and management. It will serve as a landing pad for Scottish organisations wishing to engage in Hong Kong.

ECCI is also hosting a  pop-up Carbon Chat room on Wed 25th January from 2.30pm-4pm. This will be held in the Pod, ECCI.  This is the second opportunity to meet the newly appointed CEO of HKCCI, Dr Shelly Zhou and hear about the plans for the Centre and ECCI’s international aims.No registration is required for this session.
