President of the Chinese Academy of Sciences visits ICGEB Trieste

Prof. Chunli Bai headed a delegation comprising the Director-General and Deputy D-G of the Bureau of International Cooperation and the Deputy Director of International Organization Programmes of CAS.

The CAS delegation was greeted by Prof. Mauro Giacca, ICGEB Director-General and senior staff of the Trieste laboratories and management.

A wonderful opportunity to consolidate ICGEB’s strong relationship with China, Prof. Bai made a concerted effort to visit the premises of the Organisation during his visit to Trieste, in his capacity as President of TWAS.

Forthcoming initiatives with China include the launch of a Regional Research Centre RRC in Taizhou and the In-China International Fellowships Programme to enhance participation by international students in Chinese institutes, along the model proposed by the ICGEB.
