During the first week of November, the Lau China Institute and King’s Professional and Executive Development (KPED) team welcomed a delegation of university Presidents and Vice-Presidents from Central and Western China. King’s College London was the first stop for the delegation who would later go on to visit Southampton Solent University and Imperial College London.

 

Over the course of four days, our visitors participated in a programme for university leaders designed to provide best practice guidance in areas of scientific research management and quality assurance. KPED successfully worked with the Lau China Institute and China’s National Academy of Education Administration to organise and deliver this constructive programme led by Dr Sam Beatson, Teaching Fellow at the Lau China Institute.

 

As Dr Beatson noted, “the course offered excellent value in terms of ideas and strategies for international collaboration, macro and micro organisational structuring within a terrific university and how to engage and employ a diverse range of practitioners and researchers in order to attract funding from government and other sources through innovative models.”

 

The programme began with an opening event on 31st October, hosted by Dr Joanna Newman, our Vice President and Vice-Principal International, Mr Wang Dinghua, the Chinese Ministry of Education Basic Education Department Director-General, and Mr Yongli Wang, the Minister Counselor for Education at the Chinese Embassy in London. Over the following four days, the delegation of 23 had the opportunity to meet senior staff, academics and students at King’s who gave them valuable insight into managing a research intensive university. We were able to share our international strategy, and provide guidance on how to support entrepreneurship and innovative research practices.

 

Dr Sam Beatson said about the programme that “this was a truly excellent opportunity for the organising team, including myself, to meet with high level management from throughout the university and discover research and administrative support across a number of disciplines and schemes, ranging from dental tissue analysis to entrepreneurship, from experts at engaging with politicians to leaders at King's in international strategy and collaboration.”

 

On the final day of the programme, King’s hosted a closing ceremony where certificates were presented to all attendees by Professor Kerry Brown, the Director of the Lau China Institute. The success of this visit highlights the ability of King’s to offer a constructive programmes and also continues to foster our valued relationship with colleagues in China.
