JRC presents assessment of China's innovation system
On 23 May 2019, the Joint Research Centre (JRC) presented the report "China – Challenges and Prospects of an Industrial and Innovation Powerhouse". The report analyses China's approach to attain a dominant position in international markets through a combination of industrial, research and innovation, trade and foreign direct investment policies. It also offers an evidence-based assessment of China's current position compared to the EU and US innovation systems across a range of dimensions, emphasising quantitative data on China's development.
The report concludes that China has become a major industrial competitor in several rapidly expanding high-tech sectors, and may well attain innovation leadership in specific areas.
