Innovation is the first driving force to lead the development. Today, Shanghai has accelerated the construction of a globally influential science and technology innovation center, launched a series of fruitful innovation activities, to guide the construction of the system innovation, and accumulated valuable experience in the pilot.

Extend the chain of innovation

At the Fourth Session of the 14th National People’s Congress held in Shanghai in early 2016, Mayor Yang Xiong said that Shanghai will build a comprehensive innovation and reform pilot zone this year, which will give full play to the advantages of “three-zone linkage” and further stimulate the whole society. Shanghai in the Kechuang Center construction, firmly grasp the law of science and technology innovation and development trend, for the past, “there is no technology research and development, technology without test, there is no test industry, there is no industry, industry,” the fragmented, fragmented Pattern, is committed to creating interactive collaborative innovation chain, so that the formation of chain of scientific and technological innovation chain reaction and interaction.

From the trend of technological innovation in developed countries, whether it is supply-driven innovation model or demand-driven innovation model, or supply and demand combination of innovation or system integration and innovation, are built on research and shanghai escort service development, demonstration applications, industrialization and commercialization Technology diffusion and other key aspects of the composition of the chain of scientific and technological innovation on the basis of.

Therefore, Shanghai also strive to build their own innovation chain. For example, in support of Shanghai, Beidou navigation series of enterprises is no longer go it alone, but even the strings, formed into films, to achieve group development. Shanghai satellite navigation positioning industry technology innovation strategic alliance Secretary-General Lu Xinghai said, Beidou navigation system in the application is gradually narrowing the gap with the international advanced level, basic research is also a breakthrough, another 2 to 3 years, Beidou system can International counterparts one to compete.
