U.S., Chinese young scientists hold forum to promote bilateral exchange


08:21, October 19, 2012

WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 (Xinhua) -- Ten young science professionals from Chinese research and policy institutions met with 10 of their American counterparts here on Thursday at the third U.S.-China Young Scientist Forum (YSF), the U.S. State Department said.

The third YSF was co-led by Jonathan Margolis, the U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state of science, space and health, and Wang Qiang, director of American & Oceanic affairs in the International Cooperation Division of China's Ministry of Science and Technology, the State Department said in a statement.

At the forum, the two sides "exchanged views on challenges and opportunities for young scientists such as how to build international networks and research collaborations, manage work/ life balance issues, and the importance of scientific mentoring," the statement noted.

The YSF is an outcome of the work of a science and technology working group under the framework of the U.S.-China Consultation on People-to-People Exchange (CPE), which was launched by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Chinese State Councilor Liu Yandong in Beijing in 2010.

The CPE aims at enhancing people-to-people exchanges between the United States and China on education, culture, sports, women's issues, and science and technology. The first two YSFs were held in Beijing in 2011 and 2012.
