The EU needs an own feed of information and research-based policy advice on China

The Brussels-based news platform ScienceIBusiness writes about the EU's efforts to support pan-European research on China. The article discusses the background of the European Commission's efforts to develop a new EU-wide strategy for dealing with China and why research-based advice as the main source of information for policy makers is pivotal in this regard.

€8M have been already allocated through the Horizon Europe programme to two new European research consortia which will channel the views of EU-based China experts to policy makers in Brussels and the EU MS capitals. The projects ReConnect China, with ZSI as a partner, and DWARC both started their work at the end of 2022 and are actively seeking synergies for cooperation.

Another €2.5M are earmarked for the successful consortium that will be tasked to build "a virtual European Info Platform on China" as part of another recently closed Horizon Europe call.
