Adjustment and conversion of old and new kinetic energy, and maintaining stable and healthy economic development provide important support.
Play "platform card"
Improve the overall effectiveness of the innovation system
On September 1st of this year, at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Hengshui Achievement Transformation Center, Qu Jingkui, a researcher at the Institute of Process Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was conducting a pilot test of nickel-cobalt-manganese ternary lithium battery cathode materials. This pilot line has an investment of 18 million yuan, all invested by Hengshui Tongchuang Enterprise Management Company in the high-tech zone. As soon as the pilot line is built, the funds and land required for industrialization have been implemented.
The operating expenses are fully guaranteed and the scientific research houses are provided free of charge ... In less than one year, the Institute of Process Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has registered 3 high-tech companies in Hengshui High-tech Zone.
