The Confucius Institute for Scotland in the University of Edinburgh is a national centre to promote educational, economic, and cultural ties between Scotland and China.
Set up with Sino-Scottish government backing and partnered with Fudan University in Shanghai, the centre is one of 320 established under the auspices of Hanban - the Chinese government department responsible for promotion of Chinese language overseas.
In December 2011, following on from four consecutive annual awards of the title `Confucius Institute of the Year`, a special Gold Medal award was given to the University of Edinburgh's Principal, Professor Sir Timothy O'Shea in light of the Institute's work since opening in 2006.
