The workshop was organized to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the opening of the European Centre for Chinese Studies at Peking University (PKU). Peking University, together with its three European partner universities (Copenhagen University, Denmark, Tübingen University and Frankfurt University from Germany) were able to attract almost 1,000 students to the study centre at PKU during the 10-year period. The students attended the centre at PKU for one semester each, and the current students (appr. 70 people) also attended the workshop.
 
The workshop was opened by 3 Vice Presidents; from Peking University Prof. Dr. Li Yansong; from Frankfurt University Prof. Dr. Rainer Klump; from Tübingen University Prof. Dr. Heinz-dieter Assmann. The morning session was devoted to the area of sinology (Sinology, Chinese Studies, China studies), whilst the afternoon session looked at ‘Philosophy in action’.
 
                                 
 
The attendance to the European Centre continues to grow, with 70 students in the current intake. It is heart-warming to see that this EU-Sino initiative has become such a success. The event was also a good opportunity to meet with representatives from EU universities, and give a short explanation about the STF Programme.
