CHINATIV – Ismaning
“CHINATIVE - Creative and Innovative: An interdisciplinary approach to develop China expertise with a focus on innovation management” brings together experts and students from the fields of psychology, economics, cultural studies and art & media and compares the German and Chinese approaches on the development of innovation-based processes. The project will make a special contribution to the understanding of creativity and innovation in both countries, and will bundle all measures and outcomes that will facilitate entry barriers to the Chinese market or cooperation with Chinese partners in innovation projects through an innovation network platform.

CHINFO-TUEB – Tübingen
The ChinaForum Tübingen (CFT) aims at increasing China expertise at German universities and building a model network structure to develop a new perception of China as a partner for science and economy. In order to achieve the goal of increasing the reflective perception of China, all aspects of economy, research, education, and vocational training are taken into account within the CFT project. This includes communication within the university and knowledge of China expertise in other locations (ChinaDirectory), as well as the perception of new knowledge about and from China (ChinaResources). The CFT supports the development of this process with its ChinaDesk and, at the same time, raises awareness of China within the university and throughout the region with a variety of measures. By networking with the various China expertise projects in Germany, the CFT sees itself as an information broker and information center for China expertise. The CFT's Horizon Change Initiative addresses businesses, science and civil society to accelerate the necessary change, which is a prerequisite for successfully dealing with the new challenges. In the context of the internationalisation promoted at universities, the consideration of China in the discourses of all disciplines is stimulated and promoted.

QZCHK – Konstanz
The China Center is a central training, information and advisory facility for the promotion of China expertise at the University of Applied Sciences Konstanz. It provides information on current developments in China and promotes cooperation and exchange with China as well as networking of various China related activities in the region.
The China Center develops and implements target group-specific qualification courses "China competencies" for students, teachers, personnel in university administration and university management. At the heart of the training courses are experience-oriented modules in domestic Asian teams, accompanied by individual intercultural coaching. The China Center organises China excursions for students including intercultural seminars at partner universities and on-site business workshops. It promotes the development of joint teaching and research with partners of Chinese universities and the development of cooperative study programmes, especially in technical disciplines. The China Center advises teachers, researchers and university leaders on issues of cooperation with Chinese university partners. It informs students about study and internship opportunities in China and establishes a network with alumni of the university that are active in China. With China lectures and movie nights, the China Center contributes to the discussion of current China related topics in the university and in the wider public.
The project experiences are published in the "Handbook for the Expansion of China Expertise at German Universities".
