Researcher Yan Junhao, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, an expert in infrared optoelectronic physics and semiconductors, was invited to give a special report on “Growing in the Sunshine of Reform and Opening up”. Researcher Shi Qian, the Party Branch Secretary and Director of the Party, presided over the meeting. Zhang Conghui, deputy director of the Party Branch and deputy director of the Party, and Li Wan, deputy director of the Party, attended the meeting.
Academician Chu Junhao recalled his study and scientific research experience, and demonstrated the profound impact of reform and opening up on the destiny of individuals and countries with his personal experience. Chu said young researchers need to fully develop their potential, build a strong mind and physique. One requirement is adaptable, tenacious, like grass take nutrients from environment and others. Secondly, we should cultivate such inner qualities as diligence, wisdom, gradualism and farsightedness. We should follow the trend of The Times and forge ahead step by step. Third, we need to pool the driving force of interest, demand, spirit and responsibility. We need to cultivate a sense of urgency, a sense of crisis, a sense of responsibility and a sense of mission to live up to the trust of others. Zhu also pointed out that in order to make achievements in scientific research, the first step is to determine a meaningful research direction and breakthrough point, the second step is to adhere to lofty aspirations and get rid of fickleness, and the last step is to carry forward the spirit of win-win cooperation.
Director Shi Qian expressed his gratitude to academician Chu Junhao for his report, stressing that the life experience and feelings of academician Chu are especially worthy for young researchers to learn from. The participants then had an in-depth exchange of views with Zhu on the development of Science Theory and the reform of the scientific and technological system.
