In the contemporary geopolitical world, the European Union and China are in a constant dynamic relationship. With the aim to work towards a resilient future with China for the EU and its citizens, the question this project wants to answer is in which domains EU collaboration with China is desirable, possible, or impossible. With this aim, the project has discerned four central domains of research: science and technology, economy and trade, domestic governance, and foreign policy. The independent knowledge generated in this project will be published in the form of policy briefs, research papers, and academic articles. The project will bring together stakeholders and experts in a Europe-China Knowledge Forum and, through podcasts and MOOCs, aims at raising awareness on China among the general public and European youth in particular.
