Advances in science and technology involve a wide-range of instruments for policy-making and management of research on different levels/stages “research councils, foundations, academies, universities, control and developing bodies” including supporting/funding of research activities through funding systems. Policy-making and management of research involve, also, control and performance indicators set by the researchers them-selves and in accordance with established policies and management systems.

Advances in research are also coupled with goals and objectives ranging from company/organization level to national and international levels. Within this context, researchers need different platforms for mutual interactions, dissemination, exchange and transfer of knowledge that act also for assessing reliability and quality of the research. “Conferences” in this respect are indispensable forms and unlike other platforms, e.g. book and journal, they provide friendly environment for researchers to join a whole scientific community within specific disciplines and to get over-view of the involved research, to take part in discussions, exchange of views, learning and at the same examine the scientific products before publications. In this context, “Conferences” provide great and valuable feedbacks of importance for “Career Development Plans”. They are also important what regards planning of further research activities and getting contacts with other researcher groups of value for future activities. “Conferences” can, also, be suitable for organization of meetings, workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions, and excursion.

China-European Innovative Cooperation For Cleaner Cities

Chinese and European experts are cooperating, through meetings, conferences, roundtables and workshops, to gain valuable insights into clean energy. Government and business stakeholders highlighted their willingness to strengthen EU-China cooperation on energy security. Sustainability concepts to do more with less harm are developed in Europe for successful applications of the “reduce, reuse, recycle” hierarchy in industry. Based on this, it is possible to re-design products that, after their useful life, they can be much environment-friendly than what is possible today.

The China-Europe cooperation involves a “Demo Zone Initiative” that supports the city of Urumqi in technological innovation, low-carbon urban planning and circular economy by introducing successful EU experiences and technologies. Urumqi is one of the most pol- luted cities in China and the world because of heavy air pollution from industrial sulfur dioxide emissions. The dominant industries are petrochemical, metallurgical and textiles. The goal of the “Demo Zone Initiative” is to establish a win-win method to be replicated in other Chinese cities using a toolkit for urban action and district energy planning with local project financing and public-private partnerships (PPP).

The Chinese-European cooperation, by being inter-sectorial and inter-disciplinary, has synergistic effects that bring added value to education, public awareness, construction, industry, transport, environment, decision-making, capacity building, education, research and development.
