China backs EU participation

The Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) has published the first call under a co-funding mechanism to support involvement in Horizon 2020.

The mechanism is designed to support joint projects between European and Chinese universities, research institutions and companies, by funding Chinese participants following the exclusion of China from automatic funding under Horizon 2020. The call was agreed by the Chinese government and published by MOST on 14 December. 

The first call covers research and innovation projects on food, agriculture, biotechnology, information and communication technology, space, aviation, energy, health, transportation, water resources, energy conservation, advanced manufacturing, new materials and sustainable urbanisation. It will also support exchanges of young scientists.
