There are many different cultural, artistic and academic institutions around the world that devote themselves today to research, studies and activities relating to the Silk Roads. This is of great importance in enriching our understanding of the historic Silk Roads, yet unfortunately these institutions frequently carry out their research independently of each other and all too often, the outcomes of their activities remain isolated and inaccessible to other academics and the public.  

The Silk Road Online Platform provides interactive profiles for these partner institutions, through which they can share and promote their knowledge of the Silk Road and their research efforts to know more in the future. This portal is a platform of dialogue and exchange for these institutions, encouraging a wide-ranging approach to the study of these routes.
