Stephanie Christmann-Budian studied Sinology and Cultural Studies in Berlin, Paris, and Beijing. She obtained her PhD degree in 2012 from the Free University Berlin on the topic of Chinese Science Policy since the 1990s in the context of globalization. Her research addresses the dimensions of modern and contemporary Chinese science, technology, and innovation policies in international comparison. For her investigations, she applies multi-methodological approaches (including those from the sociology of science, innovation research, and political sciences) for the qualitative and quantitative measurement of the impact of research strategies. This is based on her profound knowledge of the Chinese science and innovation system in which she accumulated more than 12 years of practical work experience. She held positions as researcher and policy analyst at the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the German Research Foundation (DFG), Fraunhofer Institute for System and Innovation Research (ISI), the Chinese Academy of Science (IPM) and the Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit). Stephanie has published various articles in the field of science and Chinese studies, analyzing, for example, the overall Chinese science system as well as different Chinese strategies to develop certain scientific or technological fields, e.g., on artificial intelligence or green technologies. Her current research project focuses on the latest reforms of the national science system of China with relation to the precedent development and the overall political situation and global position of the PRC.
