The "2017 Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Center Index Report" shows that in 2016, the Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Center reached 224.9 points, an increase of 22.7% over the same period of last year and which is the highest increase in previous years. The Report that focused on the "five forces" which are agglomeration of innovative resources, influence of scientific and technological achievements, attractiveness of innovative environment and leading force of emerging industries and innovation selects the core index that can truly reflects the capability, status and impact of innovation and development in Shanghai. Build a comprehensive reflection of the development of science and technology center index system, including five first-level indicators, a total of 32 second-level indicators.
Among the five first-level indicators that reflect the development of Shanghai Technology Innovation Center, the impact of scientific and technological achievements has been greatly enhanced by an average annual growth rate of 16.1%, especially in 2016, up to 34.0%. This shows the accelerating-rising trend Shanghai made in the global technological innovation landscape. Emerging industry leading innovative radiation motivating force made a big difference with average annual growth rate of 15.6% and 15.6% respectively. It reflected that Shanghai take the lead in accelerating the transition to an innovative economy, play a leading and pivotal role in the increasingly vast innovation network. Innovative resource agglomeration and innovative environmental attraction have been steadily improved, with an average annual growth rate of 13.0% and 12.3%, respectively. In recent years, Shanghai has continuously improving and optimizing its urban innovation ecosystem.
According to the survey conducted by overseas think-tank experts and multinational experts, most of the respondents think Shanghai is currently a global innovation and active city and has become a key regional node in the global innovation network. In the survey of the key features of Shanghai's urban characteristics, internationalization, finance and business became the top three key words selected by global respondents. Innovation and technology came in fourth and fifth respectively, followed by trade, inclusion, regulation and transportation hubs efficiency, professionalism and speed of development. It can be seen that in recent years, the international influence of science and technology innovation in Shanghai has been significantly improved. Scientific and technological innovation has become an important business card of Shanghai with international financial and business fields.
The report also summarizes the highlights of the three aspects of Shanghai Technology Innovation Construction's success. The Three "one-third" which are one-third of the country's top scientific research from Shanghai, more than one-third of the country's high-level science and technology awards fell to Shanghai, one-third of new drugs developed by the Shanghai R & D showed the significant increase in Shanghai Scientific and technological achievements. "Three major innovations lead" technological innovation boosted the secondary industry to stabilize and rebound, technological innovation boosted IC design industry to become the industry leader, information and technology service industry to become the leader of the tertiary industry, and Shanghai's innovation-driven development achieved accelerated results. "Three Notables": The characteristics of knowledge economy have been significantly enhanced; the environmental advantages of innovation and entrepreneurship have been significantly optimized; the driving effect of innovation and radiation has been significantly enhanced; and the innovation and ecology in Shanghai has been optimized in all aspects.
After the release of the Report, the major media competed for coverage and carried out in-depth reports one after another, which also aroused widespread attention of guests and representatives of the Pujiang Innovation Forum.
