CBI member Huawei announced that Baroness Neville-Rolfe, the U.K. Minister of State for Energy and Intellectual Property, attended the closing ceremony of its undergraduate programme ‘Seeds for the Future’.
As part of Baroness Neville-Rolfe’s visit to China, the IP Minister and members of the U.K. 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 was also given a tour of the Huawei R&D centre and headquarters campus. As part of Huawei’s work to address the gap in STEM skills, Seeds for the Future provides U.K. 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 U.K. undergraduates from 16 leading U.K. universities participated in this month-long programme. Huawei has now implemented its Seeds Programme in 80 countries.
Since 2011, Huawei has provided 134 U.K. 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.
