A cradle of innovation and modern industry

Updated 2017-09-21 10:00:55 Shanghai Daily

Yangpu is a place where you can not only smell the opportunities but feel the warmth of innovation and entrepreneurship.

As one of the cradles of China's modern industry, the area is historically connected to the spirit of entrepreneurship, while the old glory days are not faded memories but a bed of new age of innovation.

That is why Yangpu is a great place to start a new business and the right answer to the annual week-long nationwide campaign for mass entrepreneurship and innovation.

From last Friday, a variety of activities, including exhibitions, road shows, training courses, inno-competitions and carnivals, were held in the northeast of Shanghai to promote National Mass Entrepreneurship and Innovation Week. There were also parallel sessions around the city.

More breakthroughs

A conventional CT scanner generally takes 20 minutes to complete a whole-body check. Residents witnessed how it could be done in 16 seconds.

More breakthroughs at the event include a medical device that can see through a vein, making it easier for nurses to give an injection.

A commercial rocket startup boasts they will launch its first rocket next year.

Another company, Liulishuo, from Yangpu District, boasts an application that allows users to speak excellent English via artificial intelligence technology.

It is the third consecutive year that Yangpu has hosted the ceremony.

Last October, a song created by a Yangpu musician "Chuangxiang Zhongguo," or literally "Making it in China," echoed around the country during the business celebration week.

This year, Chang Yang Valley in Yangpu District is the major site of the annual ceremony across China.

Rich history

Yangpu owns century-old universities, industries and public utilities. It has taken advantage of its intellect and education resources to promote the regional innovation and development since the beginning of the new century.

The district has created its own path of innovation-driven transformation and development from the previous role as one of China's oldest industrial centers and a hub of intellects.

Yangpu was nominated by the Ministry of Science and Technology as one of the country's first pilot innovation districts in 2010, and identified as a key base of Shanghai's efforts to become a global innovation center and demonstration zone.
