KNOWLEDGE

The main objective of the Sino-German Urbanisation Partnership is to promote knowledge exchange between experts.

The partnership is committed to promoting platforms for open sharing of information between stakeholders working in the field of sustainable urbanisation. To realise this objective we actively share scientific studies and publications within our fields of work, and encourage and support researchers in the urban sector to work more closely with us. We also harness our online presence to share information with our diverse audiences in both China and Germany. Through our website, social media channels, and bi-monthly newsletter, we share the latest and most relevant news focused on urban development taking place in both countries. Become part of this network and share your knowledge with us!
