Seeking Truth Through Facts 2022: Pathways for U.S.-China Research Collaboration
Program 5 of 8 in our Seeking Truth Through Facts U.S.-China Program Series
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY, October 19, 2022 — Asia Society Northern California Center (ASNC), partnered with UC Berkeley School of Law's Center for Law & Technology to host a hybrid discussion on Pathways for U.S.-China Research Collaboration. This event featured two panels with expert speakers from a variety of fields on Current Challenges and Pathways Forward.
The ability of the U.S. and China to collaborate in private and public scientific research increasingly looms as a challenge that can affect all of humanity in our efforts to address pandemics, global climate change, and other shared human and planetary challenges. To some observers, however, research has become impossible due to concerns over national security, human rights, and theft.
