Radio 1 is airing a four series program about science in the BRIC countries. Sunday 24th of November, the first part of science in China, was broadcasted. Arthur Mol, chair of the Environmental Policy Group, participated in this session.

Currently China is the world's biggest factory, but it is planning to soon become the future laboratory of the world. It is the only country in the world that currently invests on a large scale in science and the number of universities has doubled over the past decade. But there are also downsides. The Chinese culture is difficult to reconcile with the way science is conducted. The next 4 weeks Frederique Melman reports on science in the four BRIC countries.
