About CAMOT

The China Association for Management of Technology (CAMOT) is proud to be a partner of the United Nations on its recent initiative – Academic Impact. We have no hesitation in endorsing whole heartedly the 10 principles of the Academic Impact. We will engage our members in higher education across the world in promoting these principles. We sincerely believe that these principles are pivotal in building a peaceful world and harmonious societies.

CAMOT incorporated with International Association for Management of Technology (IAMOT) and International Forum of Technology Management (IFTM), offers its members association with professionals and academics in the field. It has been acknowledged that there is particularly close interaction between IAMOT, IFTM and the founding members of CAMOT following the successful launching of Journal of Technology Management in China by Emerald Insight in the UK in 2005.
