China Project

China Project
Solutions to China’s energy and climate challenges involve complex scientific and technological issues. The design of public policy in addressing these issues requires access to the frontier of scientific knowledge, an appreciation of technological innovation process, the blending of scientific insights with those from other relevant disciplines, and an understanding of China’s political governance. The BECI-China Project, directed by Philomathia Fellow Junling Huang, seeks to address China’s energy and climate challenges by bringing science and technology into the design of public policy.
