UNESCO Sets up Knowledge Center in Beijing

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) set up its International Knowledge Center for Engineering Sciences and Technology (IKCEST) in Beijing on Monday.

The center will serve as a globally connected hub to assemble digital resources relating to engineering sciences and technology, build a public data service platform, provide consultation and assist scientific research and education for policy-makers and engineers, especially those from developing countries, said Pan Yunhe, deputy president of the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE).

The agreement for establishing the IKCEST was signed by CAE president Zhou Ji and Irina Bokova, director general of the UNESCO.
