Introduction

In 2017, we commemorate the five-year anniversary of the EU-China Urbanisation Partnership, which was agreed in May 2012 by President Barroso and Premier Li Keqiang. This first annual Conference plays an important role in the implementation of the EU-China Urbanisation Partnership and the Ministry of Science and Technology’s Horizon 2020 Co-Funding Mechanism as a means of facilitating discussion, collaboration, and mutual learning between countries.



Conference Theme

China is in the processes of establishing a new innovation-driven economic area. The Xiongan New Area will demonstrate how innovative-driven development, prioritising ecological protection and improving people’s well-being, can be introduced. The construction of the Xiongan New Area is of national significance and will support similar initiatives planned for the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, and the Shanghai Pudong New Area.

The Beijing Conference on China-EU Sustainable Urbanisation 2017 will bring together urban planners, policy makers, industry experts, practitioners, and scholars from around the world to share their insights, experience and solutions to the Innovation-Driven Development in New Areas.
