Our brand new office in China  

VIA’s brand new office in China is officially put into use recently!

Our new office is located inside the EU Project Innovation Centre (EUPIC) in The Business & Innovation Centre for China-Europe Cooperation’s (CCEC) main building. The new Chinese office is situated in the core area of Sichuan Free Trade Zone, and at the junction of Chengdu Hi-Tech Zone and Tianfu New Area with easy access to the airport and Chengdu Metro Line 1.

EUPIC is a non-profit organisation established in Chengdu in 2006 under the Asia Invest II Project, a European Union initiative promoting and supporting business cooperation between the EU and Asia. It is a comprehensive platform promoting trade, investment and technical cooperation between the EU and China. The Centre is actively supported by the European Commission, the Torch Centre, the Ministry of Science and Technology of China, the Sichuan Provincial People’s Government, the Chengdu Municipal People’s Government, and other Chinese and European organisations and institutions.

EUPIC promotes technology innovation and technology transfer among European educational institutes. As part of the very fruitful sister-city partnership between the Municipality of Horsens and Chengdu, VIA University College was invited to establish our new Chinese office inside the center. Benefitting from EUPIC’s and the City of Chengdu’s extensive network and professional resources, VIA already has a wide range of activities in Chengdu and is planning on getting more involved in working with Chinese universities and other Chinese partners in the near future.
