In order to boost Guangdong s industrial upgrade, lift capability of independent innovation and to further change its economic growth mode, Guangdong had introduced 12 world-class innovative scientific research teams earlier this year. Each of the teams was supported by grantsfrom the government; vary from 10 million RMB to 80 million RMB. The human virology research team and computer research team that Party secretary Wang Yang is visiting belong to the 12 teams. The two teams are led respectively by world famous virologists Professor Zhang Hui and mathematician Professor Xu Yuesheng. Professor Zhang Hui expressed his feelings: after 21 years of staying in America, I finally come back to construct my country where I grew up; I was deeply moved by Guangdong s eagerness for talents and the passion and sincerity of the leaders of SYSU . Party secretary Wang Yang communicated with the researchers in the lab, through the communication, he learned about the team s fund management and equipment introduction situation. He also showed concern about the researchers housing, household registration and their children s education, and discussed with them about the solution of these problems. When he learned that the teams are equipped with better equipments and the researchers family members are helped in their work, Wang Yang was very happy, he said: I am glad to see that SYSU concerns about talents, this means that the central government and Guangdong province both value talents and innovative team .
The success of scientific and technological innovation rests on the innovation of concept and management, said Professor Xu Yuesheng, the introduction of innovative team calls for the innovation management system. Hopefully the related departments will grant us more autonomy and flexibility so that more talents would come to Guangdong to help develop the economy. During the discussion, Secretary Zheng Detao, President Huang Daren, Vice President Meng Lifeng, Professor Zhang Hui, Professor Xu Yuesheng and their research team issued reports to Party secretary Wang Yang about talents introduction and the team building of innovative team. They also gave suggestions on how to promote Guangdong s industry transformation and economic and social development. Their reports also include opinions about establishing talents management mechanism that meets common international practices.
