China Will Promote Demonstration and Application of First Set Major Technological Equipment 31 May 2018
Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China issued opinions on promoting the demonstration and application of the first set of major technological equipment. Major technological equipment is China's national pillars and it is related to comprehensive national strength and China's national security. The first set of major technological equipment refers to equipment that have achieved major technological breakthroughs, possess intellectual property rights, and have not yet achieved market performance, including the first three complete sets of equipment, complete equipment and core components, control systems, basic materials, and software systems.
By 2020, China's major R&D and innovation system for major technological equipment, the first set of testing and evaluation systems, demonstration and application systems, and policy support systems will be fully formed, and the protection mechanism will be basically established. By 2025, the overall strength of major technological equipment will basically reach the international advanced level and effectively meet the needs of economic development and national security.
According to China's national strategic needs and application needs, the preparation of a major technological equipment innovation directory, determine the focus and sequence of research and development by strengthening the follow-up assessment of directory implementation and implementing dynamic adjustments. According to the key points identified in the directory, China will focus on the implementation of existing special projects for major technological equipment related with China's major science and technology projects and major R&D projects. China will also further strengthen the research and development of major technological equipment in the to be launched major project and the key R&D plan "Technology & Innovation 2030",
At the same time, China will improve the first set of testing and evaluation systems, formulate the first set of assessment methods, define the first set of definitions, standards, scope, and formulate evaluation procedures for application, acceptance, evaluation, publicity, and release to ensure that the assessment process is open, fair and just. According to the actual development of the industry, the validity period of the first set of assessments is determined, and the first set of product directory that pass the assessment is regularly issued and dynamically adjusted as the basis for demonstration and applications.
China will establish the first set of assessment agencies; upgrade the first set of testing capabilities; establish the first set of demonstration and application bases; set up the first set of demonstration and application alliances; do the first set of demonstration effects evaluation and other aspects to support the development of China's first set of major technological equipment.
