In order to be able to interact with China and EU constructively and without friction losses, it will in future require a larger reservoir of experts covering various fields of knowledge about the countries. One of the biggest challenges for the development of China and vice versa EU competence is that it can hardly be realistically acquired in parallel with specialist training. In order to resolve this dilemma, it is recommended to establish offers to acquire knowledge of China and EU at various levels. Chinese knowledge, socio-cultural knowledge of China and EU, and intercultural competence should be central to these offerings.
Main objectives of the University will be the interlinking of
- research & development

- support the forming of industrial standards too with lasting effects to sustainable innovation trends and enterprise foundations supported on the most modern lab and technology equipment and European and Chinese leading universities, scientists and academies
- use internationally best practice teaching methods and simulation technologies, computer-aided design and blended learning.
Aims of the university will be the exchange of competences between China and Europe, trainings, publications, studies and innovative virtual educational formats.
Training needs for schools, universities, SMEs and regions including tourism and the population in this field are huge. Continuing education programs for Chinese in EU competence and for EU citizens especially related to the German Association for Small and Medium-sized Businesses (BVMW) in China competence will be basically for a strong social, economical and cultural interchange.
