This C9-Go8 forum brought together 34 doctoral students from China and Australia to exchange ideas across disciplines and across national boundaries on key global issues relating to Big Data. The aim of this forum is to strengthen links between C9 and Go8 universities, facilitate collaboration between Australia and China and create academic and professional linkages between the future research leaders of the two countries.
The China Scholarship Council (CSC) Secretary-General Dr Liu Jinghui and Deputy Secretary-General Mr Wang Shenggang led a high-level delegation to visit the Group of Eight in Australia on 13-16 April 2015. The CSC delegation also consisted of 16 Chinese leading universities, including 10 Vice Presidents.
The delegates first visited The University of Queensland (UQ) on 13-14 April, and participated in the UQ Global Experiences Expo to promote “study in China” opportunities and scholarship programs for Australian students at all levels.
