What are the implications of China’s growing footprint in digital tech for the EU? Digital Power China, a group of engineers and China scholars has addressed this question in this new report.

The chapters are co-authored by engineers and China experts on semiconductors, 5G and beyond, AI/IoT, information campaigns, standardization and connectivity. All chapters reflect on four sets of challenges – ranging from economic to political, security and values – and provide specific policy recommendations to policymakers in Europe.

Questioning long-held beliefs, this report systematically pairs engineering and China knowledge to facilitate a well-grounded EU policy response.
