The development of the Dongtan eco-city provides an exciting opportunity for UK and Chinese researchers
The development of Dongtan provides an exciting opportunity for UK and Chinese researchers to collaborate on the research challenges arising from the construction of a sustainable city. These networks have allowed UK and Chinese researchers to undertake visits and hold workshops to discuss research challenges, to develop collaborations and to generate research proposals to be submitted to appropriate funding bodies. In addition to facilitating the initiation of the activity, Arup and other partners have contributed project information, technical expertise and administrative support to the networks. The networks have involved academic, industrial and government collaborators, and have undertaken a wide range of co-ordinated dissemination activities, including conferences, public participation and virtual networking.
