Prof. Ahlemann to join delegation trip to China

Prof. Frederik Ahlemann has been invited to join the delegation trip that the Duisburg lord mayor, Sören Link, will be leading to China this year.

The trip will focus on the areas of Smart City, digitalization, e-commerce, and logistics. Along with Duisburg’s partner city Wuhan, the participants are also scheduled to visit Hong Kong and Shenzen. The latter is a leading Smart City, mainly driven by innovative companies like Huawei and Tencent, and has a thriving start up-scene. Prof. Ahlemann will use this trip as a chance to connect with the city and digital leaders, exchange research ideas and knowledge, as well as participate in discussion panels.

The delegation trip will take place from August 31 to September 8, 2018.
