Prof. HUANG Zhengren
President of NIMTE
As a relatively young research institute, NIMTE had just celebrated its 15th birthday. Despite its limited history, NIMTE has shown extraordinary developmental potential and impact.
In 2004, NIMTE was officially co-founded by the CAS, the People’s Government of Zhejiang Province and the People’s Government of Ningbo Municipality. By virtue of the tremendous strength of the national research group and the location superiority of the Yangtze Delta, NIMTE initiated development in farmland, dedicating itself to fulfilling the mission of transforming S&T into productivity.
NIMTE has devoted itself to forward-looking technology research, system integration research, engineering verification research and talent training, gradually forging the scientific "three-chain integration" approach, thus enhancing its innovative contributions to society.
NIMTE currently pursues 18 scientific research directions, has built over 20 scientific research platforms at the national, the CAS, as well as the provincial and ministerial level, and has actively implemented world-leading innovation. NIMTE has essentially achieved its goals with "materials" as the cornerstone, employing materials to solve application problems and accelerate social development.
In the future, NIMTE will further unite its efforts, remain true to its original aspirations, and strive to construct an institute featuring first-class talent teams, a first-class policy environment, first-class research and innovation platforms, first-class research achievements and outputs, first-class disciplinary competitiveness and first-class self-development capabilities, evolving into an indispensable scientific research institution for national S&T research and leading regional economic innovation-driven development.
