The programme will include a German-Chinese cooperation meeting and visits to companies and institutes.

As the cooperation trip will coincide with the trade fair CECIA China Exhibition & Conference on Instrumental Analysis & Biotechnology (, which will be held in Guangzhou from 16 to 18 May, the programme will also include a visit to the fair. 

Companies and research institutes that are active in biotechnology and its many applications, particularly environmental protection, pharmaceutics and medical technology, are invited to join the delegation. Other related sectors, especially equipment manufacturing, measuring and laboratory technology, bioinformatics and similar fields, are also very welcome.
