Director ZHANG Feng shared the information of the development of science & technology in Wenzhou, as well as the status of science & technology program systems, science & technology projects application, project approval announcement and management procedure, etc. Mr. Zhang talked about the application process, regulations of fund using and the completion of an application form and feasibility study report in details. Additionally, he stressed the importance of the Non-profit Social Development Science & Technology Program which is closely related to WKU faculty. This program includes the fields of agriculture, resource and ecology, biomedicine, oceanography, green architecture, public security and water pollution treatment. The proposed projects should conform to the state industry and technology policies, be self-innovated; have intellectual property; be conducive to the regional industry or discipline development with market potential and social-economic effectiveness.

Director LIU Huanbin comprehensively described the situation of science & technology cooperation in Wenzhou. In addition, he indicated the significance of cooperation in science & technology at national, provincial and municipal levels. He further introduced the history of Sino-American science & technology collaboration development since the two countries first established diplomatic relations. Furthermore, he presented the 13th five-year plan of Wenzhou Science & Technology Cooperation. He hoped our faculty would actively apply for the science & technology overseas cooperation grants. He noted whereas a province-state friendship cooperative project between Zhejiang and New Jersey, WKU could help establish a Sino-American science & technology cooperation platform through Kean University and other relevant institutions. The platform would introduce excellent high-tech talents and projects from America and other countries to China in order to serve the local industry upgrading and social-economic development.

Mr. Philip Connelly who was present at the seminar expressed his warm welcome and sincere gratitude to the two directors and hoped the seminar would encourage the faculty and staff to promote the academic and research affairs at WKU. In the Q and A part, our faculty and staff raised many questions, and the speakers provided well-targeted answers.
