BILAT-SILK

Bilateral Support for the International Linkage with Kina (BILAT SILK)

Dr Miltos Ladikas in the Centre for Professional Ethics is a partner in a new European Commission-funded international project through Framework 7. BILAT SILK will raise the European Union’s science and technology profile in China through a series of promotional activities to disseminate the EU’s research policies and actions among Chinese scientists and research institutions. Strategic partnerships between EU countries and China will be promoted through collaboration schemes and the identification of new activities.

BILAT SILK will identify and demonstrate mutual interest and benefit in co-operation between the EU and China, sharing best practices via workshops and presenting the state of the art and the prospects for cooperation in particular fields. Furthermore BILAT SILK will analyze state-of-the-art methodologies and practices used in current European and Chinese Technology Assessment (TA) as science and technology policy advice, to identify common themes and practices and provide a comprehensive list of TA organisations.
