    Research and Development Working Group / Forum


The European Chamber’s Research and Development (R&D) Working Group provides a platform for exchanging information, experiences and best practices among member companies. It also promotes the dialogue about, and transparency of, Chinese R&D policies. The working group developed from the former Research and Development Forum, as members felt the need to engage directly with Chinese authorities at both central and local levels to advocate on issues related to conducting R&D in China. The working group is comprised of professionals directly involved in R&D, with representatives from more than 50 European multinational corporations (MNCs) that have R&D operations in China. Various industries are represented in the working group, including automotive, petrochemicals, chemicals and refining, information and communications technology (ICT), aerospace, energy and pharmaceuticals, among others. Many of the working group’s activities are aimed at helping China to strengthen its global science and technology (S&T) cooperation with the international R&D community, in order for China to reach its goal of becoming a world S&T power by 2049,1.
