The China question: Managing risks and maximising benefits from partnership in higher education and research

How best to engage China is the first major foreign policy challenge for a post-Brexit UK and a critical question for the future of Britain’s global and open knowledge economy.

China is set to overtake the US to become both the world’s biggest spender on R&D and the UK’s most significant research partner, raising pressing questions for policymakers at a time of rising geopolitical tensions.

A new report from the M-RCBG at Harvard Kennedy School, the Policy Institute at King’s College London, and Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate, led by former Universities Minister Jo Johnson, examines the extensive relationship with China and calls for a more coherent strategy of measuring, monitoring and mitigating risks.
