Following this conference, EchoGRID organises an EU-China Cooperation workshop on 28 October 2008 in Beijing.
This workshop is organised to promote research collaborations between China and Europe in the Grid, as well as Services and Software Technologies areas. 
Both European and Chinese representatives will gather for this workshop:
- the European Commission
- the Chinese Ministry Of Science and Technology (MOST)
- EU projects such as EchoGRID, BRIDGE, XTreemOS, GridCOMP, EU-ChinaGrid, Qualipso and several other projects involving chinese partners
- Chinese and European Industries (Huawei, China Mobile Research, Thales, Atos, ENG...)
The participating projects will present their initial objectives and their achievements in terms of cooperation between both continents. This workshop is also an opportunity for fostering relationships with European and Chinese partners who are interested in EU projects, for developing future FP7 proposals and for networking. This will also be a good opportunity for project dissemination and collaboration activities.
