Scientific Cooperation with China and India: Opportunities and Challenges for German Research Institutions

China’s leading position in many fields of research and technology makes cooperating with the country a very attractive proposition for German universities and research institutes. India’s progress in areas such as sustainability, biotechnology, and materials science also represent a sound starting point for cooperation. However, the risks of pursuing international cooperation have recently been discussed too, as resulting from the different orientations of respective national science systems. To avoid security-related risks in cooperation with China, for example, due-diligence procedures are recommended. In addition, international cooperation as a whole should be more strategic and values based.

This online discussion will shed light on the dynamics of cooperation with partners from China and India, drawing on the insights of experts from research and science management.
