I’m Karen Maddocks, First Secretary and Head of the Beijing Science and Innovation Network. As well as managing the team, I work on policy issues to build a smoother framework for S&I co-operation. The policy areas we are working on with China at the moment include reducing the use of animal testing in science, and promoting open access to data.

I am the lead contact for the UK-China space relationship and large science facilities, so keep an eye on this blog for some exciting news and pictures about satellites, powerful telescopes, lunar missions and particle accelerators. I have worked for the FCO for 13 years, almost exclusively involved with the Asia-Pacific region, with overseas postings in Vietnam, New Zealand and China.
