The Alon MedTech Ventures incubator, established by chairman Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and CEO and CTO Dr. Judith Zilberstein, is signing a cooperation agreement with Tsinghua University, considered one of China's leading universities. This is the first cooperation agreement of its kind between an Israeli technology incubator and a Chinese entity. The agreement is Tsinghua University's second in Israel, after it signed an agreement with Tel Aviv University in 2013 to establish a joint center in China for Israeli and Chinese researchers, called the XIN Research Center.
Zilberstein said, "Many Tsinghua University graduates serve in key positions in the Chinese government and economy. The University and the XIN Center have done good work in assembling this network of connections for their benefit, and we expect it to also work for companies founded in cooperation with Alon MedTech."
