The IET and the Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China join to support academic research in China

Under the agreement, the two parties will collaborate on activities to support the advancement of scientific research in China and to help to strengthen the ISTIC’s global academic partner network.

The final deliverables will be agreed on a case by case basis but will include training, seminars and workshops on search and analysis techniques.

The IET’s scientific research solutions in Inspec and Inspec Analytics will also be used to further the international reach of Chinese research and publications.

Giles Grant, IET Director of Knowledge Services and Solutions, said: “We are very pleased to be working with the ISTIC on a range of exciting initiatives that will support the provision of high-quality services and solutions to scientific researchers and practitioners in China.

“The ISTIC has a long-standing reputation of enabling the globalisation of Chinese research to the benefit of the global scientific community. As a global learned society, the IET is delighted to be part of this programme.”
