The primary objective of CHETCH is to increase the availability of interdisciplinary studies providing a comprehensive overview (including medical, legal, economic, and humanities perspectives) of Europe-China relations in healthcare.
Through specific research outputs, CHETCH aims at:
- provide guidelines, i.e. policy proposals to support policy-makers both at European and Chinese level; operational suggestions for companies working in/with China, to enhance bilateral trade and investment flows; specific suggestions to boost integration on TMC and WM research studies, etc.;
- enhance scientific knowledge, through the theoretical and empirical finding of the different and joint research tasks.
Through international mobility scheme, CHETCH aims at:
- create lasting knowledge networks. The mobility program and the joint research activities will allow the identification of projects to be carried out further to the CHETCH project. It will help establish and/or strengthen the integration and interdisciplinary research links among European and Chinese centres of excellence, not yet exploited by previous EU/Marie Curie projects;
- improve research skills. As a result of the mutually beneficial research collaboration between EU and Chinese centres of excellence, with a high reputation and knowledge in their fields, researchers will both enhance their specific knowledge and improve their interdisciplinary research skills, working in an extensive and global network of Partners.
