WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE EUROPEAN INSTITUTE FOR CHINESE STUDIES (EURICS)

EURICS is an institute working to strengthen the European research and analysis capacities on China. It works to enhance cooperation at the core of a network of European research centres and think tanks with focusing on Chinese studies, and to help forging a common European understanding of China.

EURICS supports studies on ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary China, from a double perspective, both typological and diachronic, and on current dynamics of Chinese society, economy and culture. Inspired by the model of the Institutes for Advanced Study in Human and Social Sciences, EURICS welcomes and hosts high-level sinologist scholars for a period ranging from three to ten months. No restrictions apply regarding the candidate’s research theme and nationality. 

Next to its Research Centre branch, EURICS embodies a significative Think-tank or Policy Studies unit.
