Established in 2007, RCUK China enhances research funding partnerships between the UK and China. We aim to support the best researchers in the UK and China to develop high-quality, high-impact research partnerships.
To date, we have facilitated over £211 million in co-funded programmes supporting 156 UK-China research projects that have involved more than 130 British and Chinese academic institutions and more than 120 industry partners in both countries.
A short animation introducing RCUK's activities and highlighting these partnerships is available on our films and podcasts page.
