China activities

Research and practical implications


Since 2014 the Witten Institute for Family Businesses (WIFU) plans and organizes regular events with representatives of Chinese family businesses.

Through the establishment of the research project “Chinese family businesses under cultural and social changes” research activities have received a scientific framework in 2015.

In the fall of 2015 a first learning journey to China took place.

At the beginning of 2016, WIFU signed a cooperation with Prof. Dr. Ling Chen from the Institute for Family Business Research at Zhejiang University.

Joint summer schools, more educational and research trips as well as academic exchange programs are planned for the future.
