It was the last event and final highlight of this year’s issue of Insight China 2016. We celebrated the Final Event in Olten, together with our sister projects Focus India, connectUS and exploreASEAN.
Olivier Meyer, organiser of Insight China’s Preparatory Seminar, welcomed the audience highlighting the many achievements the projects have reached this year. One of them being that the four projects have enabled more than 100 students, lecturers and supervisors to explore the respective areas of the projects. Further, a record number of almost 50 partners have been attracted to support the projects which is truly remarkable. After Olivier’s welcome, the projects owned the stage with their individual presentations about their project, with a focus on the Onsite seminars in March & April 2016.
Florian R. Georg, responsible for sponsoring and finance at Insight China, and Valentina Heiz, in charge of PR and communications at Insight China, have introduced the audience to the events of the Preparatory and Onsite Seminar. They introduced the guests to the project’s topic “Made in China 2025” which has served as a central theme for this year’s issue of the project. Further, the two students shared many pictures, valuable learnings from our speakers at the Prep Seminar and company visits during the Onsite Seminar, but also cultural highlights from the impressive trip to the Middle Kingdom! The business and cultural insights gave the audience – full of fellow students from the delegation, lecturers and potential new project team or PR team members – a good idea of the experience.
To conclude this successful presentation, the video – kindly compiled by the delegation member, Severin Jörg – included impressions from company visits, sightseeing and social interactions! This video gave everyone a great feeling of what the delegation has experienced and learned! A big Thank You to Severin for his effort!
According to the persistence of the projects, Focus India, connectUS and exploreASEAN also presented their learnings from the Preparatory and Onsite Seminar. Hearing from other projects and also seeing their videos has been very rewarding in order to get an idea of what fellow students have experienced and learned.
Towards the end, Michael Jeive – supervisor to all four International Student Projects – has once again highlighted the importance of these projects to the school. Further, he also thanked the supervisors but more importantly also the students who have dedicated a lot of time and energy to the success of these projects. All members of the project teams and PR teams have then gathered on stage to celebrate what has been achieved!
As yesterday’s event marked the final official occasion of the 15th edition of Insight China, it is our duty and pleasure to thank everyone who has made this project possible! Most importantly, gratitude goes to our sponsors who support this student project and provide a great network.
