The Chinese Studies Center at the University of Salzburg was founded in 1999 with the aim of deepening cultural relations between Austria and China, in particular between the University of Salzburg and Chinese universities or other educational institutions in China, as well as to support scientific cooperation and projects. Besides activities and programs such as language courses, summer schools, a lecture series, the Agorá, and intercultural briefings, the Chinese Studies Center aims, by means of ancillary cultural activities, at fostering a mutual understanding between the people of East Asia and Europe as well as building a bridge between these cultures.
Since the year 2002, the Chinese Studies Center of the Paris-Lodron-University of Salzburg (PLUS) in cooperation with the Eurasia-Pacific Uninet (EPU) has annually been organizing the Chinese-Austrian-EU Summer School.
Due to the worldwide pandemic situation, Mag. Judith Suchanek, director of the Chinese Studies Center at the University of Salzburg has decided to offer an online version of the Chinese-Austrian-EU Summer School this year. This Summer School includes all countries of the EU for the first time in the program and focuses on the following main topics:
History, politics and philosophy
Country and culture specific topics: history of art, music, literature and folk tradition
Economy including the relationship of the respective country to China
For the detailed information, please see the announcement of the Summer School:
