About the theme

NUGS-China Project Space will devote the third quarter of the 2020/2021 academic year to ‘TUNNEL LIGHT’, a thematically curated series of projects and business exhibitions that bring together individuals with diverse studies and business operations to promote individual and team work creativity as a force for socio-economic development.
To see a “tunnel light”; a sign of a long-awaited indication that a period of hardship or adversity is nearing an end. We know how challenging it is also to get a project/business idea out in order to attract support from the community. We also know the demand for talents on innovative products. As a response to the challenge and the demands in the market that are not only limited to having knowledge, but also more about how impeccably one can present that knowledge, TUNNEL LIGHT proposes a need to help students to experiment with their knowledge and provide them with a larger platform to showcase their talents and innovations to a broader audience. TUNNEL LIGHT seeks to promote your project to a successful end and help attract further funding and support through increased awareness.
