WHO WE ARE

Our Story

Nova China Club was founded at the beginning of the spring semester in 2019. We believe this is the perfect moment to advance Nova China Club.

First, Portugal and China share more than 500 years of history since their first encounter in 1514. Second, the year 2019 represents the 40 year anniversary of China-Portugal diplomatic relations. Third, before our founding, there was no student association in Portugal that explicitly focuses on China.

We recognize the need to fill this gap and to create a platform for China-related topics. This platform serves students and professionals to engage with each other, truly live cross-cultural exchange and grow personally.

Our Vision

Nova China Club has a simple but clear purpose …

… to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation between China, Portugal and other countries.

We believe that building a shared future is the best way to contribute to human development and prosperity over the long-term.

Our Mission

Nova China Club puts collaboration across cultures, languages and backgrounds in practice…

We will realize this mission through activities related to culture & history, education & research, business & economics, while providing a platform for students and professionals to engage with each other, truly live cross-cultural exchange and grow personally.

Our Team

Our team at Nova China Club consists of students with diverse backgrounds. We represent Portuguese, Chinese and other international students who are interested in topics related to China. Moreover, we have members from all degree types, ranging from Bachelor’s to MBA.
