Berggruen China Center

Mission

The Berggruen China Center is a hub for East-West research and dialogue dedicated to the cross-cultural and interdisciplinary study of the transformations affecting humanity. Located at Peking University, the Center engages China’s most outstanding thinkers to examine, share and develop ideas to address global challenges. Intellectual themes for researchers and visiting scholars focus on frontier technologies and society—specifically in artificial intelligence, the microbiome and gene editing as well as issues involving global governance and globalization. The Berggruen Institute has committed $25.5 million to establish the Center, which includes a Fellowship program, houses program activities such as lectures and symposia, and presents a schedule of public events. Because of its location in Beijing, the Center engages China’s most outstanding thinkers to examine, share and develop ideas to address global challenges.
