Discussion Event Summary (124.7KB)

How can, and how should, the UK collaborate with China on R&D? Can research collaboration contribute to wider diplomacy between the two countries, or to tackling global issues such as climate change? When might we not want to collaborate with China on R&D, and how do we make those decisions? At this Foundation for Science and Technology event, we discussed these issues as we explored UK-China R&D collaboration.
