The New Silk Road in time of global pandemic: changing views on academic cooperation between China and the West?

Online panel discussion with:

Marijk van der Wende (Utrecht University), William Kirby (Harvard University), Simon Marginson (University of Oxford), Dominic Sachsenmaier (University of Göttingen), Nian Cai Liu (Shanghai Jiao Tong University), Gerard A. Postiglione (The University of Hong Kong) and Anthony Welch (University of Sydney)

Principle investigators of the international research project on “The New Silk Road: implications for higher education and research cooperation between China and Europe”, discuss how the main trends and issues in collaboration between China and the West, as concluded from this study, may be affected by Corona impact. Which trends in academic cooperation with China will be sustained, enhanced, rebalanced, delayed, or even reversed? And what is most at stake in the changing geopolitical order: international collaboration, competition, trust, open science, globalization as such?

They also provide a preview of the book “China and Europe on the New Silk Road: Connecting Universities across Eurasia”, to be published by Oxford University Press and launched at the long-awaited dissemination seminar at Herrenhausen Palace (Hanover, Germany) which had to be postponed due to Corona-related circumstances.

A start seminar was organized on 19 March 2018 in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

 

The morning programme brought together UU scholars and international experts, with the aim to launch the research network as a platform for collaboration and exchange of relevant scholarly work, to explore contributions to the various areas of inquiry, to set out the path toward joint publications, and discuss opportunities for PhD training.

 

The afternoon programme was open to a wider audience. The closing remarks of the start seminar were made by Simon Marginson at Utrecht University on March 19, 2018. You can read them here (pdf).

The project is carried out by an international consortium coordinated by Utrecht University’s Centre for Global Challenges (UGlobe).
