This chapter examines the possibilities for building a science and technology foundation to the EU–China relationship. China and Europe face quite different societal changes in the next twenty years but, for both, science and technology (S&T) is part of the solution: China must embrace technology in order to deal with the problems of rapid but uneven growth, not least as they contribute to human and environmental insecurity; Europe must embrace technology to deal with weak growth, demographic contraction, and declining productivity. Moreover, many of the dimensions of these problems extend beyond bilateral and multilateral relations to questions of global governance. Therefore, the China–Europe strategic partnership on knowledge-based growth and development will become an important facet of their interaction in the next generation.

Keywords:   uneven growth, global governance, science, technology, environmental insecurity, demographic contraction
