Chinese academy taps professor to lead review

November 21, 2013

A Colorado State University professor is leading an international review of research and graduate programs at the Institute of Applied Ecology in China.

Alan K. Knapp, a professor of biology and a senior ecologist with the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology at CSU, is chairing the review panel, which includes scientists from Canada, Denmark, Hong Kong, the Netherland, Switzerland and U.S.

The Chinese Academy of Sciences commissioned the review and selected panel members.

The team recently spent three days at the institute evaluating its programs. It will make recommendations to the Chinese Academy of Sciences on the institute’s mission, research, policies, education, and technology transfer programs.

The Institute of Applied Ecology is located in Shenyang and is charged with solving ecological, agricultural and environmental problems in northeast China. Researchers focus primarily on ecology, soil science, and environmental sciences.
