What is the CHOICE database?

The CHOICE Online Database aims to provide summarized information regarding three topics:

1. Online database of EU Member States/Associated Countries (MS/AC) projects and other relevant EU projects

The database is organized in two types of programmes:

A. EC Funded Projects for EU-China Cooperation

B. Bilateral initiatives regarding cooperation between the EU and China

The database collects 60 ongoing and concluded EU-China projects of cooperation between the EU and China.
This database is built upon the existing databases presented by the previous projects, such as Chinaaccess4EU, DragonStar and other EC financed projects, as well as through research conducted by the project partners. The database will be continuously updated throughout the project timeline, promoting different best practice examples of EU-China cooperation on ICT.

Several interviews were conducted with project coordinators in order to provide additional information regarding each project description and main results.

2. Partners from EU MS/AC projects and other relevant EU projects

The database includes links and short synopses of all project partners.

3. Mapping of Chinese industrial associations to ETPs, PPPs, and EU industrial associations

The following database provides a mapping of Chinese industrial associations to European Technology Platforms (ETPs), Public-Private Partnership (PPPs) and EU industrial associations.
For each European Association, the project will identify one Chinese Association as a “Best Match”.
