New report out now!
We are happy to announce the publication of the report: Sino-Danish Technology Collaboration. The report is a result of the China Tech project, which the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV) coordinated alongside a working group consisting of the Danish-Chinese Business Forum (DCBF), Sense China (Danish Confederation of Industries), and the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research.
Other contributors to this report include: EU SME Centre Beijing, Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) and Danish Standards.
The Laurits Andersen Foundation provided financial support to the China Tech initiative and the report.
Throughout the past 10-15 years, many Danish companies and institutions have established relations with China as well as Chinese partners. These relations are today challenged by geopolitical tensions and national priorities in Beijing, Brussels, and Washington. However, technology collaboration with China creates value and is a global necessity in terms of climate change, green transition, and fighting pandemics.
Therefore, the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV), Danish Chinese Business Forum, Sense China, and the Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research – decided to jointly organize the China Tech initiative, which consisted of a series of meetings that took stock of the situation and discussed possibilities as well as challenges. Another important outcome of China Tech is the report – Sino-Danish Technology Collaboration.
This report introduces the context, potential, forms of collaboration, and ways to manage the risks associated with technology collaboration. It is prepared specifically with small and medium-sized Danish technology companies in mind and aims to help them work more confidently with existing or potential China-based partners.
