The program consisted of thematic seminars which mainly focused on the role of technology in healthcare, nutrition, and cultural heritage preservation.
The role of technology in healthcare nutrition and aging
ALISEI is a cluster which includes four different companies and four research organisations. Its aim is to promote collaboration and facilitate access to medicines through technology.
SAIC is the organisation who is charge of checking imported products in China, if products (especially food products) do not meet the requirements listed on their website they will not be imported in China.
