Community of Science Launches Chinese Portal

Community of Science, Inc. (COS; http://www.cos.com) has launched COS China, the first-ever Web portal for Chinese scientists and researchers. According to the company, COS China (http://www.china.cos.com) will enable Chinese scientists to promote their research expertise, identify international opportunities for funding, and communicate and collaborate with more than 408,000 scientists around the world who are members of COS.

COS China is the result of an exclusive partnership between COS and the Computer Network Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CNIC). COS China was created to provide access, open dialogue, and support collaboration between leading Chinese researchers and their peers in the worldwide R&D community. With the launch of COS China, faculty and staff at Chinese universities and research institutions are eligible to become active members of COS, joining more than 408,000 individual researchers at over 700 research institutions around the world.

COS will assist the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which represents 35,000 accomplished scientists and scholars at more than 200 institutes and labs throughout China, promote China's basic research capability to a global audience, and manage and track regional research expertise within China. COS China will focus on pre-competitive, collaborative research and, according to the agreement between COS and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, will exclude research information on projects and programs that relate to national security interests.
