The TOChina Hub is an integrated knowledge hub established to engage China not merely as a field of research, but as an indispensable partner in the education of future generations of cosmopolitan citizens and competent professionals.
The University of Torino
has developed the TOChina Hub in cooperation with ESCP Business School (Turin Campus)
and the Torino World Affairs Institute (T.wai)
to promote an innovative model of academic cooperation with select Chinese partners.
Joint research agendas, dynamic programs for cross-cultural training and students mobility, and fresh channels for relevant people-to-people exchanges have been established with Peking University, Beijing Foreign Studies University, Tongji University, Zhejiang University and Guangdong University of Foreign Studies.
Supported by two of Italy’s largest banking foundations – Fondazione CRT
and Fondazione CRC
–, as well as by the Torino Chamber of Commerce
, the TOChina Hub works to provide theory-informed knowledge, policy-relevant insights and practical know-how on China’s morphing identities, socio-economic structures, institutions, and policies.
