Camot Innovation Academy Cambridge (CIAC), UK is a Think-Tank and a West & East Brain-Platform which specializes the research on China’s innovation and innovation strategy and provides strategic insight and philosophical thinking on the integration of Western management with Eastern philosophy in global higher education and international business in the 21st century. The 21st century is an era of contending, an era of large reflection and re-thinking, and an era which calls for great wisdom and great strategy. In the past 35 years, the world has changed dramatically especially between West and East. The start of China’s economic reform and opening to the outside world in 1978, the collapse of the former Soviet Union in 1991, and the burst of financial bubbles in Wall Street in 2008, all these have been combined with 35 years of great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. These big events shocked the world and subverted people's thinking with huge impact on people's judgment. The right things people believed in the past have changed today, and the wrong things people believed have changed today. In particular, East and West are facing different challenges. This requires great wisdom and great strategy to deal with.
