EMBO and Chinese Academy of Sciences join efforts in the area of the life sciences

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have signed an agreement to enhance collaboration with each other over the next two years. This is the first cooperation agreement with another scientific organization that EMBO has signed during its 40 years of existence. It is designed to support life science researchers from China and Europe who wish to cooperate through fellowships and joint meetings.

"The significance of this agreement is two-fold. First of all, it consolidates our working relationship with the Chinese scientific community and secondly, it shows that EMBO is actively building links with scientific organizations throughout the world", says Frank Gannon, EMBO Executive Director.

Under their new agreement, both EMBO and CAS, will encourage researchers from China and Europe to enter into or intensify scientific collaborations with each other in the field of life sciences. To ensure that such co-operation will be beneficial to the development of science in Europe and China, the two organizations will identify priority areas for mutual aid with a view to establishing at least one large research project.

"The Chinese Academy of Sciences, the highest organization of natural sciences in China and a major player in the Chinese scientific community is pleased to see the signing of this agreement. It will open new possibilities for Chinese-European co-operation. This holds especially true for young life scientists on both sides," says Chen Zhu, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Last year EMBO added a medium-term fellowship scheme directed at scientists from emerging economies to its portfolio. As part of the new agreement, two such fellowships will be awarded to young Chinese scientists from CAS laboratories. This will allow Chinese life science researchers to visit European laboratories for six to nine months periods. In return, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has
