WUT was Evaluated as theExcellent111 Center of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing and Advanced Functional Materials


  Recently, the Office of Ministry of Education and the Office of Ministry of Science and Technology released the evaluation results of the Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation of 2018. The 111 Center of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing and Advanced Functional Materials of WUT was evaluated as excellent.


  According to the requirements of the Regulation of Overseas Expertise Introduction Project for Discipline Innovation, in 2018, the Office of Ministry of Education and the Office of Ministry of Science and Technology evaluated 51 Overseas Expertise Introduction Centers for Discipline Innovation established in 2007. The 111 Center of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing and Advanced Functional Materials of WUT, together with other eight Universities was evaluated as excellence, including the 111 Center of Scientific and Technological Innovation for Equipment Design and Manufacture of the Harbin Institute of Technology, the 111 Center of Environment Pollution Control and Quality Improvement of the Tsinghua University, and the 111 Center of Scientific and Technological Innovation for Intelligent Video System of Shanghai Jiao Tong University. According to the notice, based on the existing construction foundation, the Chinese government will continue to support the "the111 Center" with goodrank or above. At present, WUTs filed "the111 Center" 2.0 projects of the 111 Center of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing and Advanced Functional Materials will be supported.


  At present, WUT has been approved to set up five 111 Centers in total, which are the 111 Center of Advanced Technology for Materials Synthesis and Processing and Advanced Functional Materials, the 111 Center of High Performance Craft Key Technology, the 111 Center of Advanced preparation technology and engineering application of New Functional Films, the 111 Center of New Energy Vehicle Science And Key Technology, and the 111 Center of Environment-Friendly Construction Materials. The construction of the 111 center promotes the integration of backbone of scientific research of WUT and talents from top universities abroad and from institutions, giving impetus to high-level international scientific and technological cooperation research as well as academic communication. The centers as a whole will play a significant role in improving the international influence of WUT in related disciplines, and accelerating the development of "Double First-Class" initiative.


  [Reference] The Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation is jointly supported and constructed by Ministry of Education and Ministry of Science and Technology in order to optimize the construction layout of the 111 Center, and better serve the requirements of national major strategic needs, as well as lead and support the construction of world-class Universities and first-class disciplines. The Ministry of Education and Ministry of Science and Technology (State Bureau of Foreign Experts Affairs) decides to layout and construct a batch of overseas expertise introduction center for discipline innovation in important and advantaged disciplines of the 13th Five-Year Plan. The Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation require such disciplines to be the first-class discipline with advantages and characteristics in China with established scientific research platforms at national, provincial and ministerial level, possessing the good foundation of international cooperation and research. Aiming at the front edge of international science and technology, the disciplines are expected to achieve significant breakthrough, thus becoming the advanced innovation-oriented ones. Focused on the special disciplines of national major demand and industrial development, those are hoped to realize disruptive innovation, stimulating the development of new industries or disciplines with features that will lead its transformation and updating. The comprehensive supporting discipline as the think-tank should satisfy the needs of the key areas of national development, a discipline being problem oriented and integrated arts with sciences. The talent team ofthe111 centershould recruit a team of more than 10 foreign talents which contains at least one world-class academic master, and five high ability academic key talents. The first-class foreign team should be involved with over ten people internationally. The domestic talent team should also have over ten people, of which are more than five excellent academic leaders, with young and Middle-aged top-notch personnel was included. The overseas talents should among the top 100 universities in the world, research institutions, or the world's top academic teams in addition a good cooperation and research foundation with the111 Center.
