2020 China International Technology Trade Forum is held in Beijing on September 8, 2020.
The forum was sponsored by the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), and co-organized by the China Center for International Science and Technology Exchange (CISTE), Beijing Association for Science and Technology (BAST) and Beijing Academy of Science and Technology (BJAST).
Under the theme of "Opening-Up Innovation, Integration Linkage", the forum aims to build an international platform for technology trade and cooperative innovation to promote the connection between domestic demands and international resources and build Beijing into a national science and technology innovation center.
Song Jun, executive secretary of CAST, Liu Jiaqi, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Guo Xiangyuan, president of the China Society for Science and Technology Evaluation and Achievement Management, and Qi Rang, former president of CAST and former president of the China Society for Science and Technology Indicators attended the forum.
Song Jun said that CAST is willing to join hands with international sci-tech circles to build a community with shared value of mutual trust, mutual benefit and committed to innovation.
Efforts should be made to keep the core value of the international sci-tech community in mind to observe the principles of S&T governance under the purposes of the United Nations (UN) and safeguard the legal system of intellectual property protection, continued Song.
Song stressed that technical barriers should be eliminated to facilitate international science and technology exchanges in a digitalized and intelligent way.
Song called on the attendees to forge ahead with a more pragmatic attitude and create an open and inclusive environment to activate the driving force led by innovation and bring forth a win-win result.
Song pointed out that as the largest sci-tech organizations in China, CAST and its 210 member societies had given full play to the organizational and intellectual advantages of linking the vast number of sci-tech workers, and cooperated with universities, research institutions, business associations, investment organs and international organizations as well, gathering innovative resources at home and abroad to serve economic and social development.
Guided by its brand program "Innovation China", CAST is willing to build a platform integrating science, technology with economy, and introducing innovation resources across the globe, said Song.
CAST will take measures to develop innovative organizations to integrate science, technology with economy, and join hands with local governments to build city hubs to serve the "dual circulation" development pattern which takes the domestic market as the mainstay while letting internal and external markets boost each other, concluded Song.
At the forum, CISTE, together with China Society for Science and Technology Evaluation and Achievement Management, International Technology Transfer Network (ITTN), International Strategic Technology Alliance (ISTA), China Technology Exchange and many other institutions released the "”100 Global Best Practices for Technology Transfer 2020".
