Chinese Academy of Sciences seeks exchange on research management

06/15/2012 - High ranking representatives of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) visited the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK) this week. 20 Directors or Deputy Directors of different Chinese research facilities participated in the scientific exchange which focused on research management and research strategies. From PIK, Ingo Bräuer reported about the institute’s proceedings. Jürgen Kurths and Frank Wechsung refered about current cooperations with China. One focus was on the project “Sustainable water and agricultural land use in the Guanting watershed under limited water” as an example for research cooperation, a project supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

PIK follows numeral projects and activities with Chinese cooperation partners, amongst them for instance “Roadmaps towards Sustainability Energy Futures (RoSE)”, “Asessment of Climate Change Mitigation Pathways and Evaluation of the Robustness of Mitigation Cost Estimates (AMPERE) or the EU project “Global Systems Dynamics and Policy (GSDP)”. Furthermore, there are close cooperations with several universities in China. Guest scientists from China visit PIK on a regular basis. China is not only an ascending science nation but also – not least because of its economic growth and the associated emissions of greenhouse gases – of great importance in international climate policy.
