EU-China cooperation in ICT over the 2013-2015 period

December 11, 2013

News-EU-China_Sigma-OrionisSigma Orionis is proud to announce its involvement in the CHOICE project, to be launched in January 2014 for a period of 24 months, thus confirming its leading role in the development of S&T cooperation links between Europe and China in the ICT domain.

CHOICE is a FP7 support action, coordinated by Brunel University and involving leading Chinese organisations, that will provide continuity and progress in supporting and strengthening EU-China cooperation in ICT research. CHOICE will build on the results of previous projects targeting the same region, in which Sigma Orionis has been involved since 1999, including in particular the ongoing OpenChina-ICT project.

The CHOICE project will create a bridge towards H2020 and capitalize on the timely conjunction of H2020 shift away from technology driven towards innovation based on societal needs and consumer aspirations, with the Chinese Government’s firm commitment to growing domestic demand, thus emphasizing opportunities for the exploitation of H2020 in China and in particular its potential for contributing to increasing Chinese domestic demand.
