Physical and chemical technology is an important driving force for economic development. It is an important technology to satisfy national strategic demands, promote the development of the national economy and the people's living standards. Taking physics, chemistry and engineering technology as our academic basis, the Institute is mainly engaged in the technological innovation and development. As a national research institution, the Institute is committed to the innovation and research of these fields in order to promote development and progress of China's physical and chemical techniques.
Reviewing the past, since the establishment in June 1999, the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has passed extraordinary ten years. With the pace of Knowledge Innovation Program, the Institute has done a lot of researching work in the fields of optical functional materials and devices, new technologies of cryogenic engineering, new synthesis technologies for green chemistry, and energy materials and new technologies, which has promoted national scientific and technological progress and made important contributions to the economic development of China.
Looking to the future, facing the development opportunity of the new times in which knowledge is important to economy, the Institute will further pragmatic, aggressive, reform and innovate. Our general goal is, in accordance to the development of the national strategic needs and international frontier science and technology, to carry out applied basic research, strategic high-tech research and commercialization. The Institute will stress the strategic, key and integrated features of technological innovation, strengthen its cooperation and exchange with colleagues both at home and abroad and demonstration lines while conducting national major research tasks, enhance its interaction with industries, localities and enterprises concerned to explore new models and ways to improve the commercialization of S & T achievements, to form strong comprehensive strength for S & T research and capabilities for integrated innovation and sustained development so as to become a research institute of high level with important influence internationally.
We welcome domestic research institutions, colleges and universities, enterprises and the social from all walks of life to carry out all-round and multi-level cooperation with us. I believe that, through our joint efforts, we can write a new chapter to enhance China’s independent innovation capability and build an innovation-oriented country.
