China is a growing giant in many areas, and science is no exception. In an Editorial for Angewandte Chemie, Richard Zare, Professor at Stanford University, USA, and chairman of the International Evaluation Committee of the National Natural Science Foundation of China, describes the work of the committee and how international collaboration benefits science worldwide.
Zare explains that the notion that helping China hurts the USA or other Western countries is misguided. In his opinion the scientific enterprise is truly an international one from which we can benefit by sharing what we learn. “Indeed, this is one of the secret benefits of teaching—the teacher also learns.”
