Riding on the development of the "Two Zones", Beijing is speeding up its development of an international center for scientific and technological innovation. The city will focus more on building up China's strategic strength regarding science and technology, and coordinate the layout of basic research and key core-technology breakthroughs from "0 to 1", so as to modernize its industrial and supply chain by leveraging the "three science cities and one hi-tech area" as the main platform.
A hydrogen fuel cell production base and a hydrogen fuel cell R&D center are among the 100 projects inaugurated in Q2 in Beijing. Beijing will build a hydrogen fuel cell R&D center and a million-kilowatt hydrogen emerging industry base with an annual production capacity of 10,000 units (sets).
More similar projects have kicked off across the city: Changping China National Laboratory is now in operation; the construction of new-type R&D institutions such as Beijing Quantum Research Institute and Zhiyuan Research Institute is making headway; the construction of Tsinghua Industrial R&D Institute Cell and Gene Therapy Innovation Center and the public service platform for the pilot test of macromolecular antibody drugs has commenced; 7 of the 29 scientific facilities in Huairou Comprehensive National Science Center planned during the 13th Five-Year Plan period have entered the equipment commissioning phase, and the main-body construction of all remaining 22 projects will be completed by the end of June.
