What kind of foreign experts can be elected Chinese Academy of Engineering foreign academicians? The Statute of the Chinese Academy of Engineering stipulates that foreign nationals who have a high level of engineering science and technology and a good reputation in the world, contribute to the development of China's engineering science and technology, or play an important role in promoting international exchanges in engineering, science and technology in our country Experts and scholars can be nominated and elected as foreign academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Among the 18 foreign Academy of Engineering, there are the United StatesMicrosoftBill Gate, former chairman of the Royal Academy of engineering, Dao Lin Institute of Changan, Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Leo Rafael Leif, Russian Academy of Sciences, executive vice president Solntsev Konstantin Alexandrovich and a number of international big coffee. It is reported that CO opted Chinese foreign academician of the Academy of engineering of this year, the number of nominated candidates and elected foreign member of the number are the most previous foreign academicians. 18 Foreign academicians were elected academician of the host country, has a high international reputation and influence.

According to the academicians to improve and perfect the system for Chinese academy presidium to further strengthen the foreign academician election work organization and guidance, and foreign academician candidates quota from 14 in 2015 to 20. After all the Academy vote, 2017 students China foreign academician of the Academy of Science in 16. Among them, Andre Geim and James Fraser Stutadt is a Nobel prize winner.

Poland, the Netherlands and Uzbekistan. For the first time this year, scientists were elected as foreign academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is understood that under the precondition of upholding the standards of foreign academicians, the Chinese Academy of Sciences focused this year on state candidates along the "Belt and Road" route. The country distribution of foreign academicians in the Chinese Academy of Sciences is more reasonable.

Fierce competition was elected honored

"The competition is fierce, there are about 600 competitors," the newly elected Chinese Academy of engineering, the famous American Environmental Science and engineering professor Michael Hoffman told reporters in his work at the California Institute of Technology said: "I was nominated by Tsinghua University professor China, through the layers of screening and eventually elected, I feel very honored"

Chinese was elected to the Academy of Sciences of the Nobel prize in physics in 2010, a Russian born in Britain and Holland double (8.28, -0.46, -5.26%) American physicist Andre Haim told reporters in an email interview said, "over the past few decades, Chinese academy has developed into a vibrant, relatively young, truly outstanding scientists gathered club. With this mechanism, for me is a kind of glory." the British National Institute of graphene professor "expectations for this mechanism contribute to further success.

The new Chinese Academy of engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Leo Rafael Leif in a statement sent to reporters, said: "together with other elected 17 outstanding foreign academician, I am deeply honored. For Chinese Academy of engineering, I had admired for years. I appreciate not only in the Chinese Academy of Engineering recognized, more grateful for this opportunity to open a new way of cooperation and Chinese Academy of engineering and Tongren"

For president Bill Gate, elected China Academy of engineering is a great honor. "By Gates served as chairman of the United States Tara energy CEO Lee Macintyre said the company in a statement sent to reporters, said," Gates in the business, scientific and technological achievements in the field of the Chinese Academy of Engineering approved, to see such diversified technology and business innovation contribution (China Academy of Engineering) recognized, is really great!"

The heart of China is inextricably linked

Among the new foreign academicians, many have long been integrated into the tide of technological development in China and are inextricably linked with the academic and industry circles in China.

In recent years, Gates has many times to Thailand as the chairman of the energy company to China to carry out cooperation with related businesses. Terai is a nuclear energy company focused on the research and development of traveling wave heap of the fourth generation of nuclear energy technology. At present, Tera has cooperated with CNNC to jointly develop and promote the traveling wave reactor.

Huffman spends 60 to 70 days a year in China. Since 2012, he has become an overseas scholar of Tsinghua University. In addition, he is also a visiting professor at Dalian University of Technology and a member of Advisory Board of South China University of Technology.

"I have a lot of Chinese doctoral students and postdoctoral fellow, and there are quite a few Chinese researchers in my team at the California Institute of Technology." In addition, with the support of the Gates Foundation, he developed the solar energy health system at China Yixing landing, and the establishment of two manufacturing enterprises.

"At MIT, we believe that knowledge and social services can be promoted through collaboration and academic collaboration." Leh said. According to reports, the school has started a number of China-related projects, such as the establishment of China's future city laboratory, and Tsinghua University signed the "agreement on urban innovation."

Offer advice and look forward to contribute

Hoffman, elected as a member of the Academy of Engineering in the United States in 2011, spoke of the different feelings of being elected academicians of both China and the United States pointing to the "American Academy of Engineering Certificate" on the desk half-jokingly: "Look, I went I have not found a photo frame for it now, but I am very honored to be selected as a Foreign Member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

Speaking of his obligation as an academician, Huffman said that in addition to promoting scientific and technological progress, discovering talent and nominated new candidates for academicians are the basic requirements of the United States Academy of Engineering.

However, the "academicians" do not necessarily represent the authority. "At the California Institute of Technology, almost one-third are academicians, and most scientists will not overpower the title of academician. Regardless of what it is, ultimately speaking with research results Even Nobel laureates have been "cut-out" by the California Institute of Technology for lack of new research, he said.

As the first foreign academician in China, Hoffman put forward the first proposal that more and more Chinese scientists hope to carry out independent and creative work instead of forming a pyramid scientific research team with a few scientists as the center. He said that at present, some scientific research institutions such as Peking University are moving in this direction.

"In the future, I will continue to promote advanced technology research and development and transfer these technologies to Chinese companies through a license agreement from the California Institute of Technology, and I will continue to serve as a visiting professor at Tsinghua University and other schools to provide guidance to Chinese students." .

Among the newly elected foreign academicians, there are also many Chinese scholars. Liao Guofan, professor of atmospheric sciences at UCLA, has been building bridges between atmospheric and meteorological sciences in China and the United States since the 1980s. He said that China will continue to promote scientific and technological progress, scientific personnel training and scientific and technological knowledge.
