Acronym and Logo

The ThinkINchina acronym ‘TIC’ identifies the central elements of the platform:

  • Talks’ – the core of the ThinkINchina events
  • Ideas’ – a fruitful exchange of ideas that animates the ThinkINchina community
  • Community’ –  the virtual agora of researchers and students that inspires our thinking

The logo of ThinkINchina is an artificial Chinese character combining the elements ‘gate’ (門), ‘to discuss’ (論) and ‘country’ (國). We’d like to suggest a thread for our conversations, that can form a door into a discussion about issues of this country that we are residing in and are passionate about. ‘TIC’ is therefore meant to be a discussion on China from within China.
