The rapid transformations affecting the Chinese economy and society, as well as the cooperation opportunities between Europe and China will be the focus of the new “EU-China Cooperation - Economic Trends and Perspectives along the New Silk Road” Summer School, promoted by Unimore together with the Study Centre on Contemporary China - CSCC and the Xi’an Jaotong-Liverpool University of Suzhou - XJTLU.

Sponsored by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the International Cooperation, and the Municipality of Reggio Emilia, the Summer School isopen to 40 Italian and foreign students and will take place from Monday 8 to Friday 19 July 2019 in Reggio Emilia through 30 hours of traditional lectures and 15 hours of practical activities. The professors involved come from prestigious European universities and research centres, from Unimore and the Chinese University Xi’an Jaotong-Liverpool University- XJTLU. The teaching programme will provide the participants with an up-to-date and detailed picture of the changes affecting the Chinese economy and the opportunities of cooperation between Europe and China, mainly along the new trade routes that are now available thanks to the Silk Road.

With this new cooperation – Pro Rector professor Sergio Ferrari, Delegate to Unimore International Relations, states - we want to consolidate the internationalisation policies, already consistent in Unimore, by offering our students a further opportunity to explore the various topics related to the Chinese reality. More specifically, the Summer School will deal with the relationships between the European Union and China in view of the perspectives offered by the new Silk Road. During his recent visit to Italy, the President of the People’s Republic of China, Mr. Xi Jinping has reiterated the importance of the commercial, cultural and educational relationships between Italy and China. In fact, many Chinese upper high schools are integrating Italian language courses, and in accordance with this initiative, for years now Unimore has activated Chinese language courses in upper high schools of Modena and Reggio Emilia, in cooperation with the China Project Association. In promoting the encounter between cultures, we also help the development of mobility projects between students and researchers, by trying to implement new cooperation opportunities”.
