Abstract or Summary
  • China’s global influence in the realm of science and technology (S&T) has increased dramatically in recent times. China and the United States are now each other’s main partner in scientific collaboration. As a major research university, OSU is one of the institutions with a large stake in this international collaboration. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the scientific collaborations conducted between OSU and China as well as the S&T between two countries that will have a simultaneously cooperative and antagonistic relationship in future decades. A literature review was conducted. Both American and Chinese professors, students, and administrative staff were interviewed. The results are a compilation of research and experience that have found China’s scientific structure to be fundamentally different from that of the U.S. and OSU, and one that is undergoing rapid change. China is publishing more scientific papers, graduating more students in STEM fields, conducting more collaborations both in-country and internationally, funding more S&T through government channels, and is paying its scientists more. The majority of OSU-China scientific collaborations involve an exchange of “big data” sets on the Chinese side for analysis of this big data and professional training on the OSU side.
