Training Workshops on the Relationship between National Security, Defense Modernization, and Technology in China

Workshops at UC San Diego and in Washington, DC are open to advanced graduate students, junior faculty, and early- to mid-career analysts. 

The workshops typically examine some aspect of the relationship between national security, defense modernization, technology, innovation, and China's rise as a world power. Of central interest is how China is mobilizing and applying its economic, political, strategic, corporate, financial, intellectual, and scientific capabilities in conjunction with leveraging external resources to achieve its grand ambition of catching up technologically with the world’s advanced military powers. The workshops incorporate the most recent developments in China’s defense science, technology, and innovation domain.

The workshops are part of the Study of Innovation and Technology in China (SITC), an IGCC initiative on understanding China’s emerging science and technology capabilities.
