China to boost military-civilian integration in sci-tech

Updated 2017-08-24 11:03:07 Xinhua

China Wednesday unveiled a five-year plan on promoting integrated military and civilian development in the science and technology sector.

The plan was jointly issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Science and Technology Commission of the Central Military Commission.

A coordinated military-civilian innovation system for the sector should be put in place by 2020, in addition to breakthroughs in mechanisms and exploring cost-efficient patterns, the document said.

It called for sharing of sci-tech innovation resources and research platforms between military and civilian entities, as well as bidirectional transformation of their achievements.

New types of research units and think tanks on such integrations should be built, with more funds coming from the social sector for the development of defense technology, the plan said.

It also identified a new round of key sci-tech projects in military-civilian integration towards 2030, such as an integrated information system, quantum communication/computing and brain science/brain-inspired intelligence.
