The aim of the China Office is to strengthen relations between Chinese universities and research institutions and the University of Göttingen. It serves as a point of contact and information for Chinese universities, researchers and students who are interested in the University of Göttingen and for researchers and students from Göttingen who cooperate with peers in China or are visiting China. It supports cooperation arrangements between the institutions on the Göttingen campus and partners throughout China, including Hong Kong and Macao, and in Taiwan. Its tasks are to initiate and support collaboration in research endeavours and study programmes between partners in China and the University of Göttingen as well as other institutions on the Göttingen campus, to recruit outstanding Chinese students and researchers, to promote the exchange of researchers, students and staff, to organise academic events and delegation visits to China and Germany and to support the ongoing development of the alumni network in China.
