Agenda & Additional Information

Join Asia Society Northern California and BCLT for an in-person discussion on Pathways for US-China Research Collaboration.

The ability of the U.S. and China to collaborate in private and public scientific research increasingly looms as a challenge that can affect all of humanity in our efforts to address pandemics, global climate change, and other shared human and planetary challenges. To some observers, however, research has become impossible due to concerns over national security, human rights, and theft.

We begin this program by first examining the risks of U.S.-China technology collaboration, we will look at the impact of the FBI’s China Initiative, and how China’s own practices and policies may put such collaboration at risk, and the risks posed by collaboration in fundamental research and in sector-specific areas. We then will look at steps that can be taken to reduce risks of collaboration. The discussions will look at all aspects of research: government to government, corporate, non-profit and academic. 

This event is the fifth of eight in our popular Seeking Truth Through Facts U.S.-China Program Series, which focuses on new strategic frameworks for the bilateral relationship, plurilateral relationships, rebalancing trade, national security, technology, and climate change; as well as the global impact of the political and economic landscape. This program will lead up to our annual Future of U.S. & China Conference held in January 2023. 

This will be a hybrid program, with both in-person and virtual attendees.

A light lunch will be available for in-person attendees who register in advance.  Limited availability, first come first served.

Asia Society Northern California members will be given priority registration. To become a member, visit their website.
