Funded under the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme, UrbaChina is a collaborative project managed by a consortium of 11 leading Chinese and European research institutions. Coordinated by the CNRS (France’s National Centre for Scientific Research), UrbaChina will analyse China's urbanisation trends for the next 40 years and define possible future scenarios with reference to concepts of sustainability.
European Union - China cooperation
UrbaChina is a research project, which places strong emphasis on the cooperation between the EU-China. Although Europe and China have followed different urbanisation paths, there is nonetheless room for mutual learning. One of the main objectives of this project is to strengthen the collaboration between Chinese and EU researchers and policy-makers driven by the common goal of building sustainable cities.
