BEIJING—The Chinese government is hoping that its top research institutes and universities will team up with basic research laboratories around the world. And it plans to set up a special fund to help make those partnerships happen. Shang Yong, vice minister of science and technology, last week called for top institutions with “good international cooperation records” to participate in the 5-year plan. Chinese universities will need to apply for the money, which the government hopes will be matched by the non-Chinese partner.
