China to Develop Original Innovation in Sci-tech

Business meeting - two managers discussing on tablet computer with city background

China has dedicated growing resources to basic research and original innovation in recent years. Their efforts aim to cultivate a driving force for economic growth and improving people’s living standards. Chinese researchers, hi-tech enterprises and local governments are together actively striving to strengthen original innovation.

A hi-tech university laboratory has been making plans for an Artificial Intelligence (AI) research institution to explore the frontiers of AI research and make breakthroughs in key technologies. The Beijing Academy of Quantum Information Sciences has also been established with the aim to be at the global forefront of quantum physics and quantum information science. The superconducting quantum computing team made a major breakthrough by improving the decoherence time of superconducting qubits.

China has attached great importance to institutional innovation and high-level engineer and research team building. By taking a problem-oriented approach, they set up teams to overcome challenges. Science and technology development, cultivation of major talent resources, and innovation are crucial driving forces. The combination of the three can help achieve sci-tech self-reliance and self-improvement at higher levels.

An example of tech innovation in China is the development of 3D vision perception technology as it is a key and basic technology in the era of AI and the Internet of Things, involving core technologies such as imaging chips, computing chips and micro-nano optics. It is a bottleneck for the development of many other technologies and industries.

China will work with research institutions and enterprises upstream and downstream to strengthen weak parts of our industry chains and achieve breakthroughs in photosensitive chips, core algorithms, sensors and other key technologies.

As a terminal enterprise facing the market and users, the company should establish a sci-tech system and product development network for intelligent and connected vehicles, featuring multidisciplinary integration and innovation such as collaborative chips, AI and communication. In this way, key and core technologies can help build independent industry and supply chains.

The Chinese leadership has called for enhancing the overall efficacy of the national innovation system. The reformation of the sci-tech system is designed to work toward a basic system supporting innovation in all aspects. The combination of concentration on basic research, innovation and industrial application is crucial to developing robust and innovative industries.

The development zones built and managed by local governments have played an important role. For more than 30 years, the zone has been taking innovation as the key to success in its construction and development. The development zone plans to build the East Lake Science City, which will include five laboratories, nine large-scale scientific facilities and nine innovation centres. A world-class science city will be fully operational in the development zone in 2035, featuring robust innovation in science and technology.

To become a leader in science and technology, China aims to popularise sophisticated technologies by displaying them to the public. As reported by OpenGov Asia, College students from a Chinese public university displayed and demonstrated their tech products for representatives of participating enterprises to observe. These products are designed to solve the actual needs of everyday issues tackled by organisations.

This course replaces the traditional graduation design and focuses on the actual problems faced by enterprises through students’ self-selection of topics, team-building, cooperative research, and problem-solving. It aims to cultivate engineering leaders to solve practical problems and display teamwork spirit, engineering ethics, and an international vision.

Over the past three years, many participating companies have acknowledged the ingenuity of the students’ products, and more and more companies are willing to join the program. The exhibition attracted more than 40 business leaders and representatives from companies.
