Strategic Studies and Cultivation of Innovation Capability
In the 19th term of the training course for
bureau (institute)-level leaders, Yongxiang Lu , president of the CAS,
gave a report entitled " Foster the Concept of Scientific Development
and Push Forward the Leap-over Development of Innovation".
Talking of fostering the concept of scientific
development, Yongxiang Lu said that this is the requirement of socialist
modernization. We should put these concepts and objectives into effect.
It is utmost important that leaders of the Academy headquarters and its
subordinate institutes constantly intensify strategic studies. The objective
of strategic studies is to fully understand the requirement of strategic
development of the state and to study the world's scientific frontier.
The two factors of what a institution can do for the country's strategic
development in the field of relevant discipline, and what one can do to
scale new heights of science in the world have to be made clear and combined
for the selection of a breakthrough. Then, based on the strategic studies,
one should determine the emphases of work, investment, introduction of
talents and capacity building. Of course, deployment in the frontier of
a discipline and basic fields should be made and elite forces should be
organized to conduct exploratory research.
