The University is leading a project promoting research collaboration on Information Technology standardisation between China and Europe.
The China-EU Information Technology Standards Research Project is led by Prof Robin Williams with collaborators at Tsinghua University in China and at European universities in Germany, Lithuania and Norway.
Prof Robin Williams is the Director of the Research Centre for Social Sciences, School of Social and Political Science.
The People’s Republic of China has become increasingly active in information technology standards. This activity raises important issues for China about standardisation processes and technology promotion policy, with significant consequences for the European economy and global Information and Communications technologies (ICT) market.
This project brings together leading European and Chinese centres researching ICT Interoperability Standards to undertake a comparative examination of ICT standardisation processes and policies between EU and China.
The China-EU Information Technology Standards project aims to build co-operation opportunities and support to policy dialogues for ICT standards.
