U.S.-China Ecopartnership for Environmental Sustainability - USCEES


Through symposia, workshops, special forums, and an annual meeting, the UCEES has engaged nearly 2000 scientists and students from more than 40 institutions. The USCEES annual symposia serves to showcase the results of research projects, share methods and best practices, explore new research directions, network resources and facilities, and provide cultural exchanges. Since 2011, four annual symposia, which alternate venues between the U.S. and China, have been held. A total of 260 technical papers have been presented at these meetings, authored or co-authored by scientists and students from China and the U.S. The meetings also attract representatives from U.S. government agencies (including Department of State, National Science Foundation (NSF), and Department of Energy), industry (including Shell, IBM, Green Tech America, FuturaGene, Zhongke Medicine Company, and Zhongke Fertilizer Company), the Chinese Consulate of Chicago, China's National Natural Science Fund Committee, and the Shenyang Municipal Science and Technology Bureau.
