Abstract

Chinese universities expanded their aggregate enrolment size dramatically in the past fifteen years. Now they seem to be greeting opportunities to magnify their research capacity, which is exemplified by the founding of University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. For years, and following the Soviet model, China holds a separate research sector, with Chinese Academy of Sciences being the hallmark. Now such a structure seems to be at a crossroads. Changes occurring to it, no matter dramatic or gradual, will render China's university sector the primary beneficiary, which in turn enjoys a leap in terms of research resource and capacity.
