Cell Press renews partnership with the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission

Cell Press, a global leader in scientific publishing, announces the extension of a partnership begun in 2018 with the Beijing Municipal Science and Technology Commission (BMSTC), which oversees science and technology initiatives in Beijing.

As part of a memorandum of understanding signed April 29, 2024, during the closing ceremony of the Zhongguancun Forum, held in what’s known as China’s Silicon Valley, Cell Press will host prestigious international conferences and related events in Beijing for the next five years.

“Cell Press is honored to continue its position as a key partner for the BMSTC and Chinese researchers,” says Cell Press Senior Vice President Richard Remington. “This agreement allows us to not only expand our footprint in China and engage leading scientists from around the globe but also benefit local institutions by bringing in more communication and connections.”

During the Zhongguancun Forum, one of the most prominent scientific events in the country, Remington highlighted the achievements and journey of Cell Press, currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, as well as the company’s history of strategic collaborations in China.

The organizers expressed their enthusiasm for working closely with Cell Press, an all-science publisher, to create an open, inclusive, and innovative communication platform across the fields of life, physical, and earth sciences.
