On June 23rd, we organized the first LUMC Global Community Meeting on establishing successful Sino-Dutch collaborations in (bio)medical research and education.
With broad presence of LUMC professors, researchers, educational staff and researchers from the science faculty of Leiden University, and diplomatic staff of the Dutch Embassy and Consulates in China, we discussed current developments in research & education, R&D, funding opportunities and research ethics in China.
Nico Sciettekatte shared information about the Sino-Dutch (Suzhou) Science and Technology Innovation Park, a park that offers ample opportunity for international collaboration in China. Read more here: https://www.eusinobc.com/sino-dutch-suzhou-science-and-technology-innovation-park/
Annemarie Montulet revealed what it means that China is one of our university’s strategic focus countries, what support is offered and how to approach the topic of knowledge safety in relation to international collaborations. Did you know about this checklist for collaboration with Chinese knowledge institutes?
Furthermore, Yun Tian, Baoxu Pang and Peter ten Dijke proved to be great sources of knowledge and support for anyone taking their first steps in either finding a Chinese PhD or establishing broader institutional collaborations.

Maria Yazdanbakhsh, Professor of Parasitology at the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC), has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant of 2.5 million euros. She will investigate why people in Africa and Southeast Asia respond less to certain vaccines than Europeans. Her goal is to find a solution for low vaccine responses.
Truth be told, the LUMC Global program has been running for a bit more than a year now, but we want to look back at some of our achievements in our slightly more than a year anniversary. Because it has been quite a year for the LUMC Global Initiative in which we have set up multiple projects stimulating international collaboration to work on global health(care) challenges in (bio)medical education and research.
