This event was the fifth session of the 2016 U.S.–China Forum at the University of Chicago.
The US-China Forum is sponsored by the China-United States Exchange Foundation in collaboration with the University of Chicago. The annual forum brings together renowned experts—including faculty from the University of Chicago and scholars from China—for high-level engagement focused on issues of importance to both countries and, by extension, the world. It is intended to spur long-term research collaborations between Chinese and University of Chicago researchers. The 2016 program focused on water and urban development and was hosted by the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago.
