Professor Paul O’Brien, ELAROS’ CEO, took part in the recent Northern Powerhouse Trade Mission to Beijing, China. 

The technology-focused mission was geared to high growth companies keen to make contacts and create business opportunities in developing Chinese sectors, in ELAROS’ case in Medical & Consumer Health Products. 


Organised by RTC North and UK Trade & Investment, the Trade Mission was supported in China by Coway International, the commercial company for Tsinghua which is widely regarded as the country’s top research university. Coway facilitated business meetings, sourcing market information, and demonstrations of Chinese research and development, as well as introductions to local and national technology clusters such as China Technology Exchange Co Ltd, Zhongguancun Medical Devices Innovation Alliance and Peking University Care Industrial Park. 

Prof O’Brien said “The mission was hugely valuable in making key healthcare connections in China that otherwise would have been much more time-consuming to make. Our group was very impressed by the scale and ambition of Chinese plans in the medical sector, which provide a significant opportunity for ELAROS”.
