CBI will systematically document, accumulate and disseminate cutting-edge research on China through its Working Paper Series and other publications.

Sponsored by CBI, the Best Paper Award Competition at the Conference of Overseas Chinese Scholars Association in Management Science and Engineering (OCSAMSE) is held annually each summer in China. The competition and support of the conference stimulates research and innovation in manufacturing and service operations in China and expands the study of best practices.
