China is deepening its higher education links with Europe. A more in-depth relationship would include a stronger focus on understanding the management and governance of public universities to enable increased international collaboration. Jianmin Li, minister-counsellor and head of the education and culture office at China’s mission to the EU in Brussels, said at an EU-China education conference in December that beyond student exchanges China wanted “more scholar exchange and institutional cooperation”. Yang Xinyu, deputy secretary general of the China Scholarship Council, told University World News: “We are interested in the European university model to facilitate increased mobility and to understand how universities can work together.”
