Global exchange program to spur international scientific collaboration

China has launched a new program to support projects that promote nongovernmental international collaborations in science and technology, with a focus on the Belt and Road Initiative.

Three categories of projects will be featured – projects on the adaptation of high technology in Belt and Road Initiative countries, projects building high-end platforms for international-collaborated research and projects that focus on multinational science problems.
