As part of "Gathering Global Talents in Shanghai" series, Shanghai integrated circuit "Master Class" opened in Shanghai Hall of Science on August 12. The event is supported by Shanghai Talent Office, Shanghai Economy and Information Technology Commission, Shanghai Municipal Development & Reform Commission, Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai Municipality and Shanghai Association for Science and Technology, and sponsored by Shanghai University, Shanghai Integrated Circuit Industry Association, and Shanghai IC industry Investment Fund.
Fu Xinhua, first-level inspector of Shanghai Economic and Information Technology Commission, Ma Xingfa, Secretary of the Leading Party Group and vice chairman of Shanghai Association for Science and Technology(SAST), and Wang Xiaofan, vice president of Shanghai University were present and delivered speeches.
Integrated circuit is one of the three leading industries in Shanghai. As an area with the most complete integrated circuit industry chain, the highest technical level and the strongest comprehensive competitiveness in China, Shanghai has gathered more than 1,200 key industrial enterprises, 40% of the national industrial talents and 50% of the domestic industrial innovation resources in the sector. Fu Xinhua introduced that during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, Shanghai will unswervingly support the development and growth of the integrated circuit industry, and cultivate an integrated circuit industry ecosystem playing the most active part. To overcome the impact of the epidemic this year, the integrated circuit industry has continued to maintain a growth rate of over 17% in the first half of the year, and the annual scale of the integrated circuit industry is expected to exceed 300 billion yuan.
SAST attaches great importance to the development prospects of the integrated circuit industry, and focuses on promoting the construction of high-end think tanks, high-level academic exchange platforms, platforms for collaborative innovation and transformation of scientific and technological achievements, and talent training platforms in the field of integrated circuit. For example, the Integrated Circuit Special Committee attached to SAST was established to give full play to the role of a high-end technology think tank. The Integrated Circuit Innovation Summit and Academician Roundtable Conference has been held for three consecutive sessions, and the Integrated Circuit Technology Roadmap was released for the first time in China, presenting a number of high-quality advisory and political suggestions. Ma Xingfa said that SAST will strengthen the cooperation with universities, research institutes, enterprises and government departments, give full play to its advantages in academic societies, talents connecting, platform and network, to better serve the construction of Shanghai as a technology innovation center and high level talent highland.
Wang Xiaofan introduced that to relieve the tension of talents shortage in integrated circuit industry, Shanghai University carried out a training program under the guidance and support of Shanghai Economy and Information Technology Commission, Shanghai Municipal Education Commission and industry enterprises, with an expected coverage of over 1,000 people this year.
In the first lecture, Liu Ming, academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Yang Chonghe, chairman of Montage Technology, respectively made in-depth sharing on the themes of "IC innovation and development road" and "Core world, chain future", and analyzed in detail the innovation and development trend of the integrated circuit industry. Although the event strictly controlled the number of participants due to epidemic prevention, the online streaming attracted nearly one million IC industry practitioners and entrepreneurs, financial institutions staff and IC related major students in universities.
It is reported that the Shanghai IC "Master Class" plans to put on 10 sessions in 2022, each of which invites leaders of leading enterprises at home and abroad and well-known experts and scholars in the industry to make in-depth sharing reports on the technology development trend of the IC industry chain, industrial development ecology and industry development trend.
