”It’s well-known that Guangdong’s economy is export-oriented
and thus suffered a lot from the financial crisis rampant in
the US and European countries. Thus, we put up forward the goal
of industrial transformation and having more famous brands from
China. We need to introduce more advanced and high level talented
people with their own patents or brands, ”Zheng said.
He said that to attract more scientists to come to
Guangdong, the province invited scientific delegations or teams
from abroad to visit Guangdong every year.
Zou Haitao, director of Science and Technology Department
of Guangdong Provincial Government said that Guangdong has
allocated 10 to 100 million yuan or 1.4 to 14 million US dollars
special work grants to world’s advanced innovative scientific
research team who are willing to work in Guangdong.
The leading scientist can get not only five million yuan
or 630 thousand US dollars special work grant, but also a housing
subsidy of one million yuan after tax.
Accordingly, the regional and municipal governments also
allocate generous grants for the scientists and offer help to their
family and children.
Since 2010, Guangdong province has allocated 1.7 billion yuan
or over 200 million US dollars for 57 innovative research teams
and 49 leading scientists including four Nobel Laureates.
This year the application time is from May 31 to July 15 via
the website http://cxtd.gdstc.gov.cn and gdytzxb@163.com.
The delegation came at the invitation of Nordic Chinese
Business and Technology Association to discuss how to cooperate
between the two sides in high technology and research in the
future.
Lai Zhennan, vice Chairman of the association which registered
both in Sweden and the US came to Sweden from the US just in order
to attend the meeting which was organized by NCBTA Chairwoman
Gao Yingshu who was in errand on the very day.
Lai is engaged in new medicine and biotechnology and has
several patents himself. He said he is willing to cooperate with
Guangdong where his hometown is Guangzhou. One of the goals of his
association is to serve as a bridge in technological cooperation
among China, Sweden and the US.
Other members who attended the meeting included Yu Jiang,
Chairman of Sino Swedish Life Science Association, Feng Quanhong
who is engaged in 3D laser technology and a dozen other scientists
who are engaged in medicine, mining engineering, environmental
