The project Final Conference took place at a crucial time for the development of new instruments for EU-China cooperation including collaboration in science, technology and innovation (through the launch of the new EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research and Innovation). Within this context, one of the main highlights of the conference was the formulation of a EU-China ICT Cooperation Plan presenting the potential for collaboration in ICT research between Europe and China to be released by the OpenChina-ICT project including a set of recommendations to policy makers on how to better foster EU-China collaboration in the future.

The Conference focused on EU-China ICT cooperation opportunities and built upon the results of the OpenChina-ICT project. It included a first session on EU-China collaboration status and perspectives with the participation of other EU-China initiatives, a second session on cooperation priorities in ICT among the two regions in which the main findings of the OpenChina-ICT project have been presented with the involvement of the EU-China Expert Groups. The  third session aimed to provide recommendations and suggestions for EU-China successful ICT research cooperation and was led by a panel discussion of experts.

Registration was free of charge.
