This year's Forum will include some joint sessions to discuss thematics of interest to the European researchers working in China, and also some sessions where reseaerchers will split into Thematic Networks to focus on the issues relative to their research field. 

All researchers from Europe that are normally based in China are invited to register to the event and indicate if they intend to participant online or physically. Not all sessions will be hybrid: please check the agenda below to see which sessions will take place only on site. The organiser offers to cover the travel and accomodation costs for those China-based travelling from outside Shanghai.  While we hope there will be no mobility issues for researchers traveling to Shanghai, we cannot take any responsibility for any disturbances caused by COVID-related policies or other force majeure.

This event is for researchers that are based in China and are citizens of member states of the European Union and countries associated to Horizon Europe.
