丹尼斯·西蒙在过去五年是杜克昆山大学执行副校长,目前是杜克大学校长的中国事务顾问。在过去四十年,他一直关注和研究中国的人才发展和使用、高等教育的国际化和中国的国家创新体制。在这个讲座里,西蒙将聚焦中国高等学府面临的挑战、中国高等院校在中国实现经济、科技和研发强国中的作用、中国高等教育发展面对的不断变化并对其影响和阻碍甚大的政治压力及中国与国际伙伴合作的愿望和程度。此外,他还将讨论中国大学自身科研的优势和缺陷及美国大学与中国在未来建立合作的可能与机会。

Dr. Denis Simon has just completed five years as Executive Vice Chancellor of a highly regarded Sino-Foreign joint venture university in Kunshan, China.  He has spent the last four decades working inside and outside of of the PRC dealing issues related to China’s talent development and utilization, the internationalization of higher education, and the development of the Chinese national innovation system.  In this presentation, he will discuss the challenges that Chinese universities are facing and the role that the university sector is playing in China’s drive for national economic, technological and research pre-eminence, the evolving political pressures that shape and constrain the development of tertiary education in China, and the extent to which China is willing and able to work with international partners.  In addition, he will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of research conducted at Chinese universities and the extent to which US institutions are likely to find opportunities for cooperation in future.
