About SDC

SDC is a partnership between all eight Danish universities, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS).

SDC’s activities include Danish-Chinese research collaboration within six selected focus areas, eight affiliated Master’s programmes with an annual intake of approximately 150 master’s students and training of a large number of PhD students.

China

The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is China’s largest research institution in science, technology and high-tech innovation. CAS comprises more than 100 research institutes located in all parts of China with a total of almost 70,000 staff members.

Since its founding in 1949, CAS has been the most significant contributor to China’s scientific progress. Today, the organisation serves as China’s foremost science and technology advisory body to the Chinese government.

Many CAS institutes play an important role in SDC’s educational activities, including Institute of Process Engineering (Chemical and Biochemical Engineering); Institute of Biophysics (Neuroscience and Neuroimaging); Institute of Chemistry (Nanoscience and Technology); Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology (Water and Environment); Beijing Institute of Genomics (Life Science Engineering and Informatics); and many more.

University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) is a university under the direct leadership of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). It is located in Beijing where it operates four campuses, including the Yanqihu-campus north of Beijing where SDC’s educational activities have taken place since September 2017.

Since its establishment in 1978, UCAS has mainly focused on graduate education and it is China’s largest graduate institution with more than 45,000 enrolled students, including 22,300 PhD students and 22,200 Master’s students. In 2012, UCAS opened its doors for undergraduate students for the first time.

The university is widely recognised as one of the top universities in China. As UCAS is run by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the students have access to the cutting-edge research facilities in China during their research training and dissertation work at the CAS institutes.
