Lu Yongxiang Visits CAS Shanghai Branch

On Feb. 22, Lu Yongxiang inspected the Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology under the Shanghai Institutes of Biological Sciences, CAS. He emphasized that the Institutes should be aware of the rare opportunities for development and serious challenges that we are currently facing, and orient itself with a view of national strategic demands and CAS's overall development; the research efforts should be more forward looking, while basic research should be organically combined with practical applications;
The composition of talents should be optimized, and an environment conductive to the growth of young scientists should be unremittingly cultivated, so as to give full play to the function of young talents.


In the afternoon the same day, in his visit to Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC), Lu Yongxiang pointed out that, with a sound foundation, SIOC should not be satisfied with minor progress. Instead, it should be soberly aware of the speedy developments at home and abroad, seize the opportunity, and accelerate its own growth. Lu further stressed three points to SIOC: Firstly, SIOC shall put in more efforts to make its research more scientific, systematic and basic; Secondly, in terms of meeting national strategic demands, SIOC shall, by further deliberation and refinement, strive to make significant contributions that may promote the progress of human civilization, and leave substantial heritage in the development history of chemistry. Thirdly, SIOC shall keep pace with time in terms of research means, methods, organizational structure, as well as institutional mechanism.
