UC Davis joined City of Sacramento and other organizations on a Building Bridges trip to China to promote innovative projects and products. The trip, that took place between March 27th and April 7th, included visits to Beijing, Chongqing, Guangzhou, and Hong Kong.

The Building Bridges initiative seeks to encourage direct business relationships through networking between Sacramento organizations and Smart City partners in China.

Representing UC Davis was Joanna Regulska (Vice Provost and Associate Chancellor from UC Davis Global Affairs), Bob Segar (Planning Director at Aggie Square), and Mark Romney (Director of Industry Alliances under School of Medicine Office of Research).

At the US Embassy to China in Beijing, UC Davis signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Novogene, Yinfeng Bio and MEBO. Both Novogene and Yinfeng, longstanding industry partners, expressed their desire to expand their footprint in the new Aggie Square space.
