​How best to engage China is the first major foreign policy challenge for a post-Brexit UK and a critical question for the future of Britain’s global and open knowledge economy.

China is set to overtake the US to become both the world’s biggest spender on R&D and the UK’s most significant research partner, raising pressing questions for policymakers at a time of rising geopolitical tensions.A forthcoming report from the M-RCBG at Harvard Kennedy School, the Policy Institute at King's College London, and Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate, led by former Universities Minister Jo Johnson, examines the extensive relationship with China and calls for a more coherent strategy of measuring, monitoring and mitigating risks.Join our panel to hear how the UK can address this key policy and political challenge.Panel:- Jo Johnson, former Universities Minister, President's Professorial Fellow at King's College London, and Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School (chair)- Sajid Javid, former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Senior Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School- Ed Balls, former Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, Professor of Political Economy at King's College London, and Senior Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School- Janet Ilieva, founder and Director of Education Insight- Jonathan Adams, Chief Scientist at the Institute for Scientific Information at Clarivate
