A delegation from the China Science and Technology Exchange Centre visited the Maurice Wilkins Centre on July 22 to discuss the China-New Zealand Scientist Exchange Programme.
Deputy Director General of the China Science and Technology Exchange Centre, Dr Xinli Zhao, met with Maurice Wilkins Centre Deputy Director Professor Peter Shepherd to discuss successes and improvements to the programme.
The China-New Zealand Scientist Exchange Programme provides funding for ten New Zealand researchers to travel to China and ten Chinese researchers to travel to New Zealand each year to collaborate on joint research programmes such as non-communicable disease.
The programme is co-sponsored by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), and administered by the China Science and Technology Exchange Centre and the Royal Society of New Zealand.
