US society at risk as it decouples from China in science and tech

'Pipeline from university to startup to boardroom' under threat, academics say

Beijing is encouraging domestic researchers to publish scientific articles in domestic journals rather than prestigious international periodicals.

TOKYO -- The U.S. government is starting to exclude Chinese students and researchers, while the Chinese government is going its own way when it comes to developing science and technology, trends that academics say will hollow out the institutions America has come to rely on to maintain its global competitiveness.

Researchers from the hegemons are used to collaborating and in many cases have become interdependent, but the U.S.-China decoupling in scientific research puts American science and technology advances at risk.
