The Think Tank is intended to operate as an entity involving sponsors, research institutions, scholars, and other stakeholders, to provide world-class research, analysis and consulting services for companies, organizations and governments. SilkRoad Cooperation’s comparative advantages include the unsurpassed experience and expertise of its co-founders and its prestigious International Advisory Board.
The SilkRoad Cooperation will focus on five critically important domains:
(1) Trade and Transport
(2) Deep Tech (including mobility, AI, quantum computing, semiconductors)
(3) Healthcare (bio-med and med-tech)
(4) Advance New Materials; and
(5) Sustainable NEXUS: Food, Water, Energy (UN SDG Agenda 2030)
The programs will embrace not only EU-China bilateral issues, but also inextricably related developments along the Belt and Road (including RCEP) and in multilateral forums, such as at the World Trade Organization and United Nations agencies. Acting independently and impartially, the think tank will also serve as a common facility for governments.
