Congratulations on the 10th anniversary of the SDC (Sino-Danish Center For Education and Research).

Zhao Hong, Professor and Dean of the Sino-Danish College, recently welcomed more than 200 attendees to celebrate 10 years of intensive Chinese-Danish collaboration, at an event held both online and at the SDC in Huairou, Beijing. SDC marked the anniversary with a symposium and the launch of the first SDC International Report.

Among the other prominent guests, the event was attended by the Ambassador of Denmark to China, Thomas ?strup M?ller, and Wang Yanfen, Executive Vice-President of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

“Sino-Danish relations revolve around shared interests, mutual respect and dialogue,” said Ambassador Thomas ?strup M?ller in his speech. “Dialogue is the DNA of SDC. All of you Chinese and Danish students present here today, you sprout from different soil, providing us your own distinctive characteristics, ideas and values. And this diversity is what makes SDC a fertile ground for learning and research.”

He described the SDC as a house of science. “A house where we adhere to the universal standards of knowledge production and veracity. Here we strive to pass on the best of our knowledge and produce new insights that will contribute to the improvement of our societies.”

Over the past decade, much progress and many achievements have been made, some of which can be expressed through numbers. They include a number of joint research projects, more than 600 scientific publications (2015-2019), and co-funding of more than 400 Danish and Chinese PhD students. Almost 800 graduates have met the world with a double degree from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and a Danish university in their hand.

Launch of the first SDC International Report

The first SDC International Report, titled “Cooperating for Energy Transition”, which comprises contributions from nearly 50 Chinese and Danish researchers, was launched and marked with three parallel sessions.
