Fengdong New Town Reform Demo Base of Scientific and Technological Resources Coordination
The demo base, part of the province’s coordinated reform of S&T resources, was approved as a “demo zone” by the provincial Science and Technology Department on Sep 13, 2013. It is the first of its kind in Shaanxi; a reward for its achievements over the past two years.
The base cooperated with West Technological Innovation Port of Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) to initiate the Tianhaixing Digital Workshop and the XJTU Modern Manufacturing and Service Industrial Innovation Demo Base, which are under construction.
The introduction of another 13 projects including Aipu cloud computing and No 203 Research Institute of Nuclear Industry is being pushed forward, as are negotiations over projects such as the Beidou industrial demo base, a Xi'an food and drug inspection center, and a joint center of national patent examination.
Recently, the State Council asked Xixian to coordinate S&T resources when promoting the new area to national level, which will bring new opportunities.
As the core of Shaanxi’s coordinated reform of S&T resources, the base will carefully consider companies, the market and talented personnel, making full use of the key role business plays in innovation.
By 2023, the base aims to become an S&T innovation zone of nationwide influence, with 10,000 S&T enterprises, 100 billion yuan of output value, 100 major research institutions and 10 State-level S&T projects, and a major strategic economic zone of S&T innovations leading the development of the Guanzhong-Tianshui Economic Zone.
