Item description for Innovation in China: The Dawning of the Asian Century by Greg MacDonald...

China's economy is growing quickly, and is innovation-led. Europe can relate to China through joint R&D, programmes which offer an alternative vehicle of engagement to the traditional political and economic approaches. Innovation in China: The Dawning of the Asian Century promotes an awareness of the dynamics of innovation in China. It examines Chinese and European approaches to science and technology and contends that the 'rules for survival' in R&D and education are changing in favour of China, in terms of base R&D parameters such as research expenditure, scientists trained, papers published and patents awarded. The authors recommend options for Europe and China to connect through longitudinal R&D projects and 'carrousel-training exchanges' in environmental and health related fields. ____________________________________ Greg MacDonald works in Latvia on an EU proposal to connect European Science Parks with China. He has worked as a professor, researcher and project manager with the Stockholm School of Economics, Copenhagen University, International Labour Office, Geneva, Sydney University, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and on several EU projects in Russia and Kazakhstan.
