A Primer on Science Research in China

Abstract:
Earlier this year, MOST approved a series of what it calls megaprojects as part of the current 5-year economic development plan. As Science magazine reported in March 2006 (subscription required), the plan specifies 16 major initiatives, including basic research projects in protein science, quantum physics, nanotechnology, and developmental and reproductive science. Citing figures from China's State Council (the highest executive-level governing body), Science reported that by 2020, basic research would account for 15% of total R&D spending in China, up from 6% in 2004.
