Professor Li Hua, Founder and President of ELITE Innovation College Cambridge
"How did human society develop? Where is the driving force for development? There is no doubt that the ability of social innovation and technological innovation is crucial. Innovation is the driving force for human development. Conceptual innovation, theoretical innovation, technological innovation, and social management innovation are all the driving forces that promote the development of human society. We believe that conceptual innovation and theoretical innovation are primary. Imagine that if there is no conceptual and theoretical innovation inhuman society, then all other innovations are empty talks, which will undoubtedly stand still.

ELITE is an acronym of E-Learning of Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship within an O2O innovation university in the global higher education. I very much appreciate the brilliance and miracles that NINGBO POWER SOURCE has created in the past 15 years. The scientific and technological innovation consulting service platform built by it supports more than a thousand small and medium-sized enterprises. It is a great honor to develop in-depth cooperation with NINGBO POWER SOURCE.
Thanks to Chairman Zhang for inviting, China Embracing Innovation Research Institute in Ningbo was born in the right time, the right place, with the great support of people. Ningbo is at the forefront of China's reform and opening up, full of stories of embracing innovation. The dominant form of China's market economy appears to have been introduced from the West after the reform and opening up. However, the market economy has deep ideological origins in China. The embryonic form of its thoughts can be traced back thousands of years. In my book [China’s Embracing Innovation Leading to the Future], I researched on Fan Li, the merchant saint from the city of Ningbo for a long time. Fan Li, a well-known politician, military strategist, and industrialist in the Spring and Autumn Period of China, was the forerunner of market economy thoughts, and his market economy concepts have lasted forever. I can dig into Fan Li's philosophical thoughts and innovative wisdom through the past, present and future of the city of Ningbo with China Embracing Innovation. Tell the story of the city of Ningbo to the world, and let the city of Ningbo go global following our [Global Innovation Webinar]." Professor Li-Hua stressed during the virtual signing ceremony.
