China Talent Programm

MERICS European China Talent Program

Nov 24 - Dec 10, 2021


2021 Special Edition: Young Professional Women

The European China Talent Program (ECTP) encourages young European professionals to hone their understanding of contemporary China and the ways it affects Europe. In 2021, MERICS sought to shine a light on the many excellent young female talents in the European China research community and contribute to gender-diversity and inclusion. We provided participants with unique training and a mentorship opportunity where they benefited from exchanges with peers and experts from various China-related career paths.

The selected ECTP participants gained insights into the work of MERICS, the largest European research institute on contemporary China. As part of an intense three-day program, participants worked in teams to draft and present specific and target-oriented proposals for improving European policy towards China on some of the most pressing contemporary issues.

The 2021 ECTP will take place in various digital working groups and mentoring sessions, November 24 to December 10.

Launched by the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) in 2015, the ECTP takes place each year and gathers a select group of 15-20 young European professionals with a track record of exposure to China and the potential to excel in their given professions.

Throughout the years, the ECTP has developed into Europe’s leading forum for young professionals with a strong China background, establishing a diverse network of alumni who work in national governments, EU institutions, international organizations, academia, business, think tanks and public affairs.
