Suzhou Industrial Auditorium serves as knowledge sharing charity for science and technology systems, scientific research teams, high-tech enterprises developed by Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute. It will regularly invite government officials, well-known industry experts, top academics in academic circles, outstanding scientific research teams and other guests to conduct exchanges and sharing on scientific and technological achievement transformation, industry carding analysis, industry situation research, and high-tech project road shows. Guests and other guests will conduct exchanges and sharing around the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, industry arrangement and analysis, industry situation research, and high-tech project road shows.
Feng Xiang, President of Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute, said Opening and Re-starting Conference would greatly benefit transformation and upgrading of Suzhou industry. Ten of the 30 major measures released by the conference were closely related to the work of Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute, highlighting determination of Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute to promote industrial development through technological transformation.
Feng Xiang emphasized that Opening and Re-starting Conference offered 3 "golden keys" to development of Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute.
The first key broadened development ideas. Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute, as “Special Economic Zone” of Suzhou scientific and technological innovation, should dare to take lead in breakthroughs and innovation, keeping up with global industrial development trends, exploring diversified cooperation models for innovative resources.
The second key broadened resource gathering perspectives. The Institute would stand at a higher level to attract global high-end talent teams and projects to Suzhou, forming a "hub" for knowledge flow and transformation of results.
The third key developed the pattern of shared development. Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute would plan and promote scientific and technological innovation from a global perspective, positively integrating into the global scientific and technological innovation network, sharing dividends of scientific and technological development.
So far, Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute has launched its 2020 first batch applications. Any world-class research and development teams in line with development direction of Suzhou leading industries and strategic emerging industries, with international leading original core technologies, and continuous innovation capabilities, and any project teams supporting Suzhou industrial transformation, innovation and development, can apply separately or in conjunction with modules. Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute will adhere to industry positioning and market orientation, institutional innovation, multiple win-win, combination of investment and appropriation, centering on teams, principles of pooling resources and comprehensive services, providing funding of up to 100 million Yuan for each landing project.
At the conference, Suzhou Industrial Technology Research Institute published project application specifications and procedures.
