About this Event

This event is part of the “China: How to…” series.

Are you working on China-related projects and wondering how to navigate research collaborations with China-based counterparts? Would you like to hear from colleagues who have experience with the challenges and opportunities of collaborating in China? What policies and procedures should you consider?

The panel of speakers will share personal, concrete examples of how their research collaborations in China were formed, how they have been developed and sustained. The discussion will suggest things you need to consider before carrying out your research and introduce relevant policies and procedures that apply, to help you better understand the opportunities and challenges when developing research collaborations in China.

Chair: Dr Olivier Krischer, Acting Director, China Studies Centre
