A delegation with 18 Austrian experts on advanced materials from excellent Austrian universities and representatives from Austrian companies successfully visited China from 11-16 November 2018. The visit was organized by the Office of Science and Technology of the Austrian Embassy in Beijing (OSAT) in collaboration with Advantage Austria, the Austrian Chamber of Commerce and led by the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT). The main purpose of the delegation visit was identifying additional potential cooperation partners and preparing for the upcoming joint calls: the fifth joint call between the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and the fourth joint call between FFG and the Shanghai University.

During the visit, Sino-Austrian Roundtables on Advanced Materials, lab visits and individual science to science and business to business meetings were arranged with Chinese researchers from different renowned CAS institutes: the Institute of Metal Research, Chinese Academy of Science (IMRCAS) in Shenyang, the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (TIPCCAS) in Beijing, the Ningbo Institute of Industrial Technology of the Chinese Academy of Science (CNITECH) in Ningbo, the Shanghai University and the Shanghai Institute of Ceramics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (SICCAS) as well as numerous Chinese companies.

The visit offered an excellent opportunity for the Austrian participants to exchange information with their potential cooperation partners, to gain deeper insights into their research areas and to get closer contact with each other.
