Camot Academy Cambridge (CAC), a think-tank and brain-platform with a global vision in the creation of ELITE O2O Innovation University of the future, focusing on innovation study, was founded in September, 2015, at St John Innovation Centre, Cambridge, which can be traced back to 2006 when a group of outstanding management scholars launched China Association for Management of Technology (CAMOT) at the International Association for Management of Technology (IAMOT) International Conference delivered at Tsinghua University. CAMOT was subsequently registered in the UK. CAC started offering bespoke corporate and executive development, leadership development and coaching programmes, along with the delivery of CAMOT International Conference and China Embracing Innovation Forums very recently in Tsinghua University, Cambridge University, Bournemouth and Stafford with local government, UK and in Helsinki, Finland. CAC concentrates higher education delivery and development with a paradigm of "West meets East" and highlights green and sustainable development, and constantly build global network and accumulates global academic resources and strategic alliances with a global responsible leadership. 

The signing of the MoU confirms that both parties will work together in joint-running school and delivery of programmesin US, Canada and UK and in the direction of achievement of a university title with taught degree awarding power (TDAP) in the UK, or US or Canada. 

Both parties will work together in validating or re-validating new programmes that can be recognized by and can be topped up to universities in the UK. Both parties will work together in marketing, recruitment, and promotional events to target a moderate increase of the student number and the diversified student body for the delivery of financial sustainability. Both parties will proceed with the proposal for Davis College to have presence in the UK hosted by CAC in Cambridge in order to make Davis a strong corporate brand and for Davis students to have mobility and study experience in the UK, and or USA and or Canada. 

“I am delighted to work together with Camot Academy Cambridge and join the journey in creating the globally-connected ELITE O2O Innovation University. I appreciate very much of Professor Li-Hua’s education ethos of a global vision with a paradigm of west meets east in the global higher education. We share such a great vision in tackling the challenges and opportunities in the global higher education in the 21st century. I am delighted that Davis College grows gradually and can be extended to Canada and UK within a short period of time. We are trying to achieve auniversity title soon  by working together with CAC in Cambridge”.

“In terms of the roadmap for working together in the near future, we could validate a few more associate degree, market-driven programmes which can be topped to the final year in the UK universities for the diver sification of the student body.”

“We are creating four Colleges connecting to our offline delivery centre around the world on our innovation university platform, through which we build a strong feature and niche of the university along withother academic schools, including:

  • Camot College of Innovation

  • Camot College of Technology

  • Camot College of Entrepreneurship

  • Camot College of Global Leadership

In order to convert the special knowledge of innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and global leadership, into generic knowledge in liberal art seducation.”

This un-traditional, innovative and entrepreneurial university was born during the pandemic with a mission. The educational and learning lose of the students during the university closures is not temporary. Many negative aspects, such as, the curbing of educational aspirations, the disengagement from the university system and absence from the familiar academic ambience on campus will have a long-term impact on students’ journey and learning outcomes. 

“Our strategic intention of creating this university with an innovative teaching and learning pedagogy is with consideration of all these issues properly attended”. Professor Li-Hua, the founder of China Embracing Innovation theory, responded to the remarks of John and Diane during the virtual singing ceremony.

The signature of the MoU confirms that the two parties are working together in creating synergy.
