On June 22-23, 2018,“Pujiang Innovation Forum —— 2018 International Science,Technology and Innovation Think Tank Fourm" was held in Shanghai. The seminar was hosted by the Shanghai Institute for Science of Science named “Science and Technology Innovation Center: Urban Agglomeration and Opportunities”. Inviting experts from science and technology innovation think tanks from domestic and abroad to share their experiences and research on the development of cities and urban agglomerations of global innovation centers, aiming to open a brainstorming on innovative ideas, provide suggestions for collaborative innovation in the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration, and promote international Cooperation and exchange between scientific and technological innovation think tanks.
In today's world, the new technological revolution and global industrial transformation are gestating, which has had a major impact on the world economic structure and competition pattern, and the development of cities and urban agglomerations is undergoing profound changes. Shanghai is in the process of implementing an innovation-driven development strategy and accelerating the construction of a technological innovation center with global influence under the situation of integration in the Yangtze River Delta. At the seminar, from the Development Research Center of the State Council, China Science and Technology Development Strategy Research Institute, Science and Technology Strategy Consulting Institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tongji University, East China Normal University, China and Globalization Think Tank, UNESCO, Economic Cooperation and Development Organization Experts from think tanks such as the Moscow Innovation Agency and Israel's Curium have opened up a brainstorm about innovative ideas. Focusing on "the logic and strategy of collaborative innovation in the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration", "innovation and development experience of international urban agglomerations", "urban agglomeration and global talent governance", "urban innovation and scientific research output" and "modern economic system and modern industrial system construction" On the other topics, a comprehensive and in-depth discussion was held to contribute to the collaborative innovation of the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration and the acceleration of the construction of a globally influential science and technology innovation center in Shanghai.
