Peter is the Prosperity Programme Manager for the Science and Innovation Network in China. He oversees a portfolio of 13 projects funded through the UK government’s Prosperity fund. The network uses these projects to take forward work in priority areas which include: agritech, animal testing, space, data, innovation and knowledge transfer.

A key priority for Peter is designing a four year (2017-2021) Prosperity Innovation Programme. This programme will help China to become a more innovative economy and create opportunities for UK business in strategic sectors. His aim is that that this project will be delivered through: the building of a platform that links innovation centres in the UK and China, the establishment of UK-China innovation demonstrators and carrying out research to help reform Chinese policy.

Peter has been based in China since 2010 and previously held positions in the UK’s Climate Change and Energy Network and UK Trade and Investment.
