Corresponding PhD proposal need to be well developed and may address, but are not limited to, aspects such as:


- Governance, principles and constraints of Chinese state-led AI development policies

- Role of national Chinese AI open innovation platforms; and/or

The 3 year scholarship includes tuition fees, office space, travel grants plus a salary, currently starting with per month app. DKK 27.568 up to DKK 33.293 depending on seniority, plus a pension contribution totalling 17.1%. The scholarship is financed by the Sino Danish Centre (SDC) and requires a min. stay of 12 month in China as well as the opportunity of a double PhD with UCAS.
