Overview

Thales provides innovative solutions for China’s infrastructures (backbone for the country’s growth). With more than 30 years' development in China, Thales has been already a trusted partner for Chinese aviation and urban rail transportation industries. In China, Thales today employs 1300 employees, 95% of the staff being of Chinese nationality.
Thales’ strategy is to boost its local presence partnering with local players. In China, Thales is developing through local Joint Ventures.
 
Thales develops Innovation Hubs around the world. These Hubs serve as structures for collaborative innovation and combine new design methods, simulation tools and visualizations in order to co-create a truly differentiated offer with ‘customer-users’, ultimately designing better products. In June 2014, Thales inaugurated an Innovation Hub in Hong Kong. A true incubator of ideas for academic, government and industry representatives, the Hong Kong Innovation Hub will focus on the concept of Smart Cities, working specifically in the transport and security domains. In 2016, Thales is developing a new Innovation Hub in its Beijing office focusing on aerospace and signaling systems for railways.

To prepare the future, relations with Universities and Research Centers are key.  To that end, Thales has developed several academic partnerships in China.
