The innovation hub is a new Scottish low carbon knowledge exchange and ‘touch down’ office managed by the University of Edinburgh in Hong Kong Science and Technology Park. It will promote the adoption of low carbon and sustainable technologies in China, and strengthens relationships with Scottish business and universities in the area.

Ms Sturgeon said:
The University of Edinburgh has a world-class reputation and I’m confident that this relationship will help provide Scottish companies with a route into Hong Kong and, through its strong links with China, act as a gateway into China.
