CCI and China: where are we and what next?

In response to an increasing interest in China, CCI brought together 30 researchers from four CCI partner organisations and eight University Departments on the 17th December 2012 for a networking meeting to talk about their work in China and to explore opportunities for future collaborative projects.

The title of the one day workshop was “CCI and China 1: Where are we and what next?” and the aims of it were for CCI partners to:

  1. Share information on current and planned projects in China
  2. Discuss practical challenges and opportunities being encountered by partners, both in the course of their work and in relation to China
  3. Identify scope for closer collaboration between organisations/projects to address these challenges and opportunities and to share lessons learnt
  4. Explore and then develop opportunities for future CCI collaborations, including applications to the CCI Collaborative Fund

The workshop was divided into morning and afternoon sessions. The focus of the morning was to provide an overview of the work that CCI partner organisations and University Departments are doing in China. After more talks in the afternoon, people with similar interests were grouped together to brainstorm ideas for possible collaborative CCI projects in China and to begin to develop project concepts related to these. Some of these concepts may be developed into applications for the CCI Collaborative Fund.
