Programme Description
General and specific objectives
As part of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation’s China strategy, a Danish university centre is being established in Beijing in collaboration with the Graduate University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (GUCAS) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
The aim is to establish optimum conditions for Danish universities and enterprises taking part in and benefiting from China’s massive investment in knowledge and talent.

Priority actions
The Danish university centre in Beijing – Sino-Danish Centre (SDC) – is being established, among other things, with a view to creating a visible platform for Danish research and education in China and building a stronger Danish-Chinese collaboration within research. This means that the university centre will offer a framework for Danish-Chinese research projects, PhD programmes and joint Master’s (candidatus) programmes.
Management and coordination
The supreme decision-making body of the Sino-Danish Centre is a Joint Managerial Committee consisting of 10 members. Five of which are appointed by China, and five by Denmark (three by the Danish universities involved, and two by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.) A Chinese Principal Director and a Danish Executive Director form the daily management of the SDC.
Expected or achieved outputs, outcomes and impacts
There are plans to affiliate 100 researchers, 75 PhD students and 300 graduate students, half of which are from Denmark and half from China, with the centre in 2013.
