The BoF will cover co-operation between the GÉANT and Chinese R&E communities since the ORIENTplus project successfully completed at the end of 2014. There will be an update on the London-Beijing connectivity provided jointly by GÉANT and CERNET and an opportunity to share information on current and potential new EU/China user applications. We would also like to use the BoF to gauge interest in joint promotion between the European and Chinese R&E communities to increase user collaborations and for technical collaboration between the NRENs.


  • Welcome – Jennifer An (CERNET)
  • EU/China updates – David West (GÉANT), Jennifer An (CERNET), Jiangning Chen (CSTNET), others invited to contribute
  • EU China user collaborations – existing and potential - David West (GÉANT), Jennifer An (CERNET), Jiangning Chen (CSTNET), others invited to contribute
  • EU China marketing – Helga Spitaler (GÉANT)
  • Technical collaboration opportunities – Ping Hu, Zhonghui Li and Cheng Yan (CERNET)
  • General discussion: what other user opportunities do participants know of, what technical collaboration opportunities are participants interested in, what more should we do to foster EU-China collaborations?
  • Sum-up and BoF close
