Project 211 (Chinese: 211工程; pinyin: 211 gōngchéng) is a project of National Key Universities and colleges initiated in 1995 by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, with the intent of raising the research standards of high-level universities and cultivating strategies for socio-economic development. During the first phase of the project, from 1996 to 2000, approximately US$2.2 billion was distributed.[1]

China today has 116 institutions of higher education (about 6 percent) designated as 211 Project institutions for having met certain scientific, technical, and human resources standards and offer advanced degree programs). Project 211 schools take on the responsibility of training four-fifths of doctoral students, two-thirds of graduate students, half of students from abroad and one-third of undergraduates. They offer 85% of the state's key subjects, hold 96 percent of the state's key laboratories, and consume 70% of scientific research funding.[2]

The name for the project comes from an abbreviation of the slogan "面向21世纪,办好100所高校 (For the 21st century, to manage 100 universities successfully)". 100 was approximate number of participating universities.[3]

Since 2014, Project 211 was less mentioned and gradually succeeded by a new project called plan 111 (Program of Introducing Talents of Discipline to Universities).[4][5]

In September 2017, a related plan called the Double First Class University Plan was announced.[6][7] It was unclear whether this plan represents a new way of ranking universities in China,[6] or replaces Project 211 and Project 985[7]
