Gan Zhao Li Centre

China’s research intensity (1.98% of GDP) has tripled since 1998 as a share of the overall economy, and is now larger than the European Union’s (1.97%)

The Gan Zhao Li Centre is a high-level network and multidisciplinary research centre focusing on innovation and Sino-European studies. Founded in 2012, the name – “Gan Zhao Li” – is based on the Chinese characters for “the power to inspire.”
