University of Birmingham launches new China Institute

The University of Birmingham's China Institute officially opened on Thursday to provide an umbrella structure for the numerous China interests in the university.

"Our China Institute marks an important milestone in our longstanding relationship with China," said Professor David Eastwood, vice-chancellor of the University of Birmingham.

"Last year, we opened our landmark center in Guangzhou. This year, in creating the China Institute, we are reaffirming Birmingham's deep and robust commitment to engagement with the country," he said.

Professor Edward Peck, pro-vice-chancellor and head of the College of Social Sciences, has been appointed as chair of the China Institute.

"Every college of the university is engaging in meaningful collaborations with Chinese partners. The China Institute will bring together this broad spectrum of research, providing a central hub for the numerous, and growing, China interests across the Edgbaston campus," said Professor Peck.

The history of collaboration between China and the University of Birmingham spans over 100 years. The university has some 28,000 students and 6,000 members of staff.
