Address from the Director


For three decades, China has demonstrated the remarkable achievements of economy development to the world. The strength and growth of the nation's economy are intimately linked to the strength of our industry, cutting edge material research and innovative development, and their applications are absolutely vital to the industry development. 

To conform the development trend and meet the demands of the national economic development, researching and manufacturing novel and high performance materials has become a key subject which is also a challenge to government, academia and industry. To resolve the challenge, a model in which the cooperation of all interested groups is ensured from the onset would be ideal. The establishment of the Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering, the Chinese Academy of Science is an attempt to provide such platform in fostering cooperation between academia, industry and government. CNITECH becomes a liaison in developing and implementing new material technologies.

CNITECH adheres to the philosophy of creation of knowledge, emphasizes on the forefront researches and application in materials, and aims to become a unique world-class research institute in materials science, technology and engineering. CNITECH carries out material research in three main fields, including new materials, advanced manufucturing and new energy. The growth of CNITECH is dramatic. Through recent years, CNITECH has made a number of breakthroughs in both fundamental and applied material research, e.g. High module lower shrinkage poly(ethylene terephthlate) fibers, Solid Oxide Fuel Cell, Nd-Fe-B Ring Magnet with a Radial Anisotropic Alignment, and BiTe-Based Thermoelectric Material.

Actively seeking innovative solutions, the researchers at CNITECH are in the forefront of studying new material technologies which will facilitate the use of high performance material in industry. We sincerely welcome all the domestic and foreign experts to join us, work together, benefit regional development and contribute our effort to the world.
