BAI Chunli: CAS Invites More Foreign Scientists to Strengthen Its Innovation Capacity
Date:2011-06-10

"The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is open to more international scientists and young research fellows. Talents both home and abroad will strengthen our innovative force and help tackle major science and technology problems,” said CAS President BAI Chunli at the Meeting of CAS Senior International Scientists and Young Fellows (2011) held on June 9th in Beijing.

BAI addressed that the CAS took international collaboration as an inseparable part of its research and development.

"International cooperation is both an effective means to bring in, absorb and utilize worldwide scientific progress, resources and talent for innovation, and a way for the CAS to contribute to the global science progress and the tackling of various global challenges," he said.

More than 70 overseas scientists attended the meeting and shared their collaboration research achievements in China during the past 12 months. The scientists represent 201 members of “CAS Visiting Professorships for Senior International Scientists” and 85 recipients of the “CAS Fellowships for Young International Scientists”, who were selected into the two programs last year.

Five senior scientists and five young fellows delivered presentations at the plenary session and expressed their expectations on the CAS international research collaboration. All the overseas attendees reported on their recent research progress during the following group workshops.

The CAS launched the two fellowship programs in 2009, aiming to lure more foreign talents thus enhance its science and technology innovation capacity. The programs were praised by the State Councilor LIU Yandong as “of demonstrative significance and international influence” in the Chinese science community.

A new international cooperation award -- CAS Cooperation Award for International Young Scientists -- will be launched to further encourage cross-cultural exchanges and scientific cooperation among the young scientists.
