China and the EU today launched a joint program to build long-term collaboration on science and technology based on "mutual trust and openness". Through the project young European researchers will acquire "insider knowledge" about China, the Chinese people and EU-China relations.
In the first phase of the Science and Technology Fellowship Program China (STF) sponsored by the European CommissionCthirty researchers from 12 EU countries will learn Chinese in Beijing for six months, followed by 18 months practical research in top-notch Chinese academic institutions, including Tsinghua University, China Academy of Sciences, Peking University, Shanghai Jiaoting University and the University of Science and Technology in Hefei to name a few.
