From May 28th to May 30th, the University of Chongqing hosted the 4th International Conference of UrbaChina in Chongqing.
Members of UrbaChina’s consortium gathered at the venue to present and discuss the results of their research. Members of Urbachina’s Scientific committee provided further advice and guidance on current and future research work. The University of Chongqing invited relevant speakers, and students and other interested participants joined the dialogue.
The University of Chongqing offered a calligraphy reading “the new silk road” (xin sichou zhi lu－新丝绸之路), suggesting a new route for research cooperation between Europe and China through Chongqing. Calligraphy is an elevated art form in China, which reflects the importance attached to the word in this country.
