Vice Minister Cao Jianlin met with Ms. Maire Geoghegan-Quinn, Research and Innovation Commissioner of the European Commission (EC) in Beijing on May 24th.
Both sides spoke highly of the achievements in science and technology (S&T) cooperation. Many signed documents created deliverables to China-EU Summit over the last few years. During Shanghai World Expo, the China-EU S&T Week and the 8th China-EU Energy Cooperation Conference were held successfully. The proteomics cooperation project launched recently marked a step forward in the implementation of China-EU S&T Partnership Scheme.
The two sides exchanged opinions and reached consensus on enhancing S&T collaboration in a range of areas, such as S&T evaluation, infrastructure, clean energy and health.
