In 2018, Boehringer Ingelheim initiated the China IN project, which involved making China part of its clinical trials in the world. In 2019, the project was upgraded to the China Key project, which breaks away from the traditional R&D model for new drugs and makes China an integral part of its early clinical development research.

The move to integrate itself with local innovative forces has become an important part of Boehringer Ingelheim's development strategy in China. Over the past years, the company has actively collaborated with partners throughout the industrial chain in China, focusing on early-stage research and innovation empowerment, and working with various parties to promote the implementation of innovative solutions in China.
