China's exponential economic growth, increased education development and R&D funding, and recent focus on the development of science infrastructure has turned the country into a promising opportunity for both local and international researchers. Although the United States is currently in the lead, according to a survey performed by Nature - Attitudes Towards Migration - when asked which country would be producing the best science in their field by 2020, 59% of researchers said: China
众所周知的中国的经济发展，加上中国政府和整个社会越来越重视在教育和科学研究上的投入，可以说，无论对于中国还是外国的研究者，中国的整个科研环境都在变得越来越有吸引力。 虽然当前的世界科研格局还是以美国为领导的， 但是Nature杂志此前曾做过一次调查，当被问及到2020年最想去哪个国家做它们所在领域的研究时，59%的研究者表示想去中国。
The interest starts earlier though, it begins with the increasing number of international students going to China to pursue their studies, and often obtain their degrees, at Chinese Universities.
Although most would be concerned with the language barrier, Chinese students have been encouraged to study abroad in an attempt to improve their higher education level. This move facilitated the development of English taught courses in China, as many professors obtained their PhD degrees in Universities from the U.S, U.K, Australia, and other countries around the world.
As a country in rapid economic growth, there is a clear match in growing opportunities and development. Part of it is witnessed in the improvement in the quality of higher education as well, China has focused not only on improving its education standards but also in facilitating mutual acknowledgement of academic degrees and qualifications.
Furthermore, in order to attract more foreigners, the Chinese Government has set up a number of scholarship and fellowship programs in order to sponsor international students, professors and scholars with an interest in studying and conducting research in China.
Science centers and institutions have been working towards making research teams more international and, consequently, more innovative.
Ji Xiangdong, the current head of the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astronomy, and Cosmology at Shanghai Jiao Tong University believes China's current economic situation allows for the development of new and bigger science projects and creates opportunities for scientists from all over the world, according to the Journal Science (http://bit.ly/16qeVLt).
The professor is also the head of a project called the PandaX Experiment, a dark matter search experiment at China Jin-Ping underground lab, with both Chinese and American researchers collaborating on the project.
Other projects, such as the ESA-CAS Joint Scientific Space Mission Workshop have been developed in order to encourage international cooperation, as Chinese researchers become more and more interested in participating in international projects.
上海交通大学核粒子物理，天文学和宇宙学等学科的领头人季向东教授表示，中国当前的经济形势使得中国有能力设立更重大的科学研究项目。 这些项目将为更多中国和国外的科研团队创建机会。 (http://bit.ly/16qeVLt).
另外，由于中国的研究者对国际合作与加入国际科研项目越来越有兴趣， 一个名为 ESA-CAS Joint Scientific Space Mission Workshop 也已经设立，旨在鼓励更多的国际科研合作。
However, even though there is a growing mobility of researchers and scholars towards China, some still doubt whether the move is right for them on a personal level. Reasons vary from culture differences to political circumstances, but the bottom line is that if the best science is going to be coming out of China, all international researchers need to understand how they conduct their research, and the best way to do so is to experience it first hand.
This blog will focus on news, events and other relevant information regarding scholarships and fellowships, for those interested in finding out more about what this education and research system has to offer.
It will also provide some news about how Jijitang is developing and growing.
