What We Do?

China is a key global actor and a leading economic and technological power. China’s increasing relevance in the geopolitical system, its various specificities, complexities, and goals as well as its rapid evolution and new policy directions pose challenge to the EU’s capacity to better understand contemporary China. Besides, the EU needs to get to know and understand China on its own terms: not through the lens of other external sources but from its own European perspective.

However, the European level expertise on contemporary China is often fragmented and difficult to access. In this regard, it is essential to connect established and emerging knowledge nodes as well as gathering, categorising, and mainstreaming their work on a publicly accessible platform. This approach will break down siloes and provide policy-makers, researchers, businesses, and civil society with the necessary knowledge to develop a comprehensive understanding of the various aspects that define contemporary China.

To address these challenges, EuroHub4Sino is funded by the European Research Executive Agency (REA) of the European Commission, through a 3-years Horizon Europe grant.

Achieve an Innovative and Sustainable Business Model
