Macmillan Science and Education, a global division of the Holtzbrinck Publishing Group, has announced the opening of a new regional office, based in Shanghai. The office is expected to further strengthen Macmillan's ability to serve the fast growing scientific research and education sectors in China.
The new Shanghai office will provide strategic leadership, business management and support functions to Macmillan's Science businesses in Greater China, and Scholarly and Education businesses in Asia. Along with Macmillan's existing footprint in Tokyo, Hong Kong and other locations in Asia, the new Shanghai office will provide high-quality content and solutions to transform learning and discovery, and improve the way students learn, teachers teach and scientists discover in the region.
Led by Charlotte Liu , Managing Director, Macmillan Science (Greater China) and Education (Asia), the Shanghai-based team will bring the best practices, products and services from Macmillan Science & Education's global network, to help Chinese researchers and language learners achieve greater success. The office will also be instrumental in delivering Chinese language learning content, scientific discovery and other products from China to a global audience, using Macmillan's highly established infrastructure and network.
Macmillan signed a Framework of Cooperation with the Shanghai Association for Science & Technology (SAST), pledging a five year alliance to stimulate international co-operation in the fields of science and technology, to nurture local talent and promote the success of Chinese scientists to the global stage.
