Huawei Hosts Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Minister for Energy and Intellectual Property, in Shenzhen HQ, China

Minister meets UK students participating in ‘Seeds for the Future’ Programme

Shenzhen, China. 23 August, 2016 – The Minister of State for Energy and Intellectual Property, Baroness Neville-Rolfe today attended the closing ceremony of Huawei’s undergraduate programme, ‘Seeds for the Future’, where she was hosted by Ms Chen Lifang, Director of the Board and Senior Vice-President, Huawei. As part of Baroness Neville-Rolfe’s visit to China, the IP Minister and members of the Intellectual Property Office and other delegates met with Huawei’s Council General, Dr. Song Liu Ping, to learn more about Huawei’s strategy and achievements to date in IP. The visiting party were also given a tour of the Huawei R&D centre and Headquarters campus.

As part of Huawei’s work to address the increasing gap in STEM skills, ‘Seeds for the Future’ provides UK undergraduates with the opportunity to travel to China, learn about Huawei’s international business culture and values, and receive ICT training from some of the best professionals in the industry. The undergraduates also had the opportunity to work alongside Tsinghua University students and hear from organisations including the British Council and other major multinationals to learn more about their business operations in China. This year, 40 UK undergraduates from 16 leading UK universities have participated in this month long programme.

Chen Lifang, Board Director and Senior Vice-President, Huawei said: “We are very pleased to host Baroness Neville-Rolfe and the UK IP delegation at Huawei’s Headquarters. As a company driving skills and innovation, IP is at the front and centre of the work we do. The young generation are the future and our ‘Seeds for the Future’ programme is just one way that we try to help young, talented people to gain business experience and nurture their STEM skills.”

Huawei has now implemented its Seeds Programme in 80 countries globally. Since 2011 Huawei has provided 134 UK undergraduates with the opportunity to learn about China and to experience the development and business application of cutting edge technologies in Huawei’s global HQ in Shenzhen.
