More innovation

How will Huairou Science City remain a magnet for continuous technological innovations?

For instance, Shing-Tung Yau, or Qiu Chengtong, one of the most influential mathematicians globally, and Zeng Qingcun, a famous meteorologist from the Chinese Academy of Sciences who received China's top science award, have been enticed to work in the city.

Young talents also continue to inject vitality.

In 2016, to address the bottleneck problem of low-temperature strong magnetic fields, several PhD graduates from the Chinese Academy of Sciences jointly founded Multi-Fields Tech.

According to its founder Cong Junzhuang, the company mainly consists of talented people under the age of 30, with the youngest PhD student born in 1997.

As the company moved into Huairou Science City, the Huairou government offered substantial support by way of rent reductions, financial investment and personnel settlements, he said.

"With such support, the company is now in rapid development. We are able to not only provide the country technical support for related fields, but also possess sufficient competitiveness in the international market," Cong added.

Industry experts believe that such top-level talent will inject a steady stream of vitality into the construction of an international innovative ecosystem and continuous scientific and technological development of Huairou Science City.

According to its development plan, Huairou Science City is expected to basically form an urban framework for growth, significantly enhance its influence and become an important support for the country's construction of an international science and technology innovation center.

By 2035, it aims to become an internationally renowned science city and national science center, offering crucial support for Beijing's development as an international science and technology innovation center and for China's advancement to the forefront of innovative countries.

By 2050, the city has vowed to fully develop into a world-leading science city and national science center to support China's emergence as a global science and technology powerhouse.

Public transportation between Huairou Science City and the main roadways of Beijing, particularly downtown, will also soon witness improvements, making it much easier to get to and from the remotely located science park.
