The Tyndall Centre has initiated a new partnership with the Research Institute for Global Environmental Change (RICE) at Fudan University, Shanghai, one of the big three Universities in China.
This expansion of the Tyndall Centre to China creates new opportunities for collaborative research by bringing together UK and Chinese researchers from across the scientific, engineering, social science and economic communities.
China is in the process of becoming the world’s most powerful economy. Their development pathway will strongly influence global climate change, the world’s food, energy and human security, and have predominant impact on water security and air quality in East Asia.
The Tyndall Fudan research ambitions are focussed around 1) greenhouse gas stabilisation and transition to a low carbon economy, 2) food, water and human security, and 3) building resilience and reducing the vulnerability of people and places. These new collaborations between UK and Chinese researchers will help provide key insights on the drivers of global change and help manage the pathways of world development.
Tyndall Fudan is funded with a 15 year commitment by the Chinese central government through the 985 Fund and the Shanghai City government. The collaborative partnership is co-Directed by Prof Trevor Davies, Deputy Director for International Activities at the Tyndall Centre, and Prof Yiqi Luo from Fudan University.
