Delegation from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences visits SCAS

A delegation of representatives of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) is visiting Sweden
this week in order to continue the dialogue on how to further develop and reinforce the collaboration
between China and Sweden within the humanities and social sciences. The visit is coordinated by the
Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (SCAS) in collaboration with Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (the
Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences).

The visit is a result of the deeper contacts between SCAS and CASS that have been developed after the
signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two institutes and Riksbankens Jubileumsfond
in April 2014. During the visit to the Collegium, a round-table seminar will be held, where future Sino-
European and Sino-Swedish exchange and cooperation will be discussed. Among other things, the aim is
to identify themes for a planned symposium on Sino-European Cultural Encounters, which is due to take
place in the Fujian province in south-eastern China in the summer of 2015.
