The Third GuLing Scientific Conference Held in Xiamen University
Delegates Had Development Communication on the Promotion of the Major Scientific & Technological Issues of Two-Dimensional Material and Graphene Research
Chenqiu Li Minister Attended the Meeting and Delivered a Speech
On August 20, the third GuLing scientific conference organized by Fujian Provincial Department of Science and Technology was held in Xiamen University. The conference focuses on theme of " Two-Dimensional Material and Graphene Research and Application". Academicians and well-known scholars from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing University, China University of Technology and Xiamen University, and scientific research institutes from provincial colleges, responsible persons from graphene-related industrial enterprises, all get together to have development communications on the promotion of the major scientific & technological issues of two-dimensional material and graphene research and application, and to better promote the construction of industrial Technology Research Institute of Xiamen University.
The GuLing scientific conference has two distinct characteristics: Firstly, high-level experts, gathering top talents from home and abroad on the two-dimensional material and graphene research and application, and, and the exchanging content is of international high academic standards, according to international meeting role, all the communication are proceeded in English; secondly, through the video conference system, inviting China University of Technology, Fudan University, Chinese Academy of Sciences Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, which step at the forefront of domestic industry research, to participate in discussion, thus expanding the conference influence.
Minister from Fujian Provincial Department of Science and Technology Mr.Chenqiu Li said in his speech at the conference, the establishment of Graphene Industrial Technology Research Institute of Xiamen University, has important meaning to seize the strategic emerging industry heights, innovation-driven industrial transformation and upgrading, and the conference get great support from Fujian Provincial Committee and provincial government. The major goals of the conference is through inviting domestic and international high-end talents, to discuss the frontier scientific problems and bottleneck technical problems of two-dimensional material and graphene field, to enlighten wisdom, and constantly strengthen the status of the Institute in the industry, to build a world-important graphene technology center, while promoting the research findings of two-dimensional material and graphene into demonstration and landing transformation in Fujian, and strive to develop business applications in a broader fields, to form a new economic growth point.
At the conference, emeritus professor of physics of University of Manchester-Konstantin Novoselov, academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Director of the Nano Science and Technology Research Center of Peking University, Director of the Institute of Physical Chemistry Professor Liu Zhongfan and other five experts made a presentation entitled, respectively, "Two-Dimensional Atomic Crystal Based Heterostructures," "The Control Growing Way of Graphene and Other Two-Dimensional Material ", "Near-Infrared Light-Driven Photocatalytic Water Splitting," Physics and Chemistry Under the Cover of Two-Dimensional Atomic Crystal". Academician from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Director of Energy Materials Chemistry Collaborative Innovation Center of Xiamen University Professor Tian Zhongqun, presided over the conference. Experts and enterprise representatives exchanged the latest developments of the two-dimensional material and graphene research applications, focusing on expediting the two-dimensional material and graphene applications and exchange ideas and views.
Two-dimensional materials like graphene is a revolutionary new material in the 21st century. With its broad industrial application prospects and high economic and social value, graphene become the strategic high ground for the world to win the future developmens. In order to accelerate the development of graphene technology, applications and industrialization, Xiamen University relies on its strong academic foundation and outstanding innovation ability, cooperate with competitive enterprises like Fujian Powerbooster Materials Group to build Graphene Industrial Technology Research Institute of Xiamen University, develops scientific research and industrialization of graphene technology, accelerate the industrialization of graphene. Currently, the R&D work is gradually on the right track.
