In his speech, Bie Ronghai affirmed the scientific and technological work in 2018, and congratulated to the researchers and relevant departments who have obtained national-level projects. He reviewed the background that the National Natural Science Foundation and the Social Science Fund established, analyzed the current situation of technological innovation. He raised hopes and requirements as well. Firstly, the significance of the National Fund Project must fully be understood. The implementation of national-level scientific research projects represented by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the National Social Science Fund is related to the national innovation-driven development strategy, to the improvement of the scientific research status of Henan universities, to the goal of the transformation and development of schools. It was the need to improve the innovation of educational concepts and the level of teaching. We must pay great attention in terms of ideological understanding with the sense of mission and urgency. Secondly, the ability to undertake national fund projects must be enhanced. National fund projects are the most important channels to support basic research. Researchers, especially young teachers, must declare the State Fund Projects from the aspects of accumulating scientific research foundations, selecting the reasonable topic, writing high-quality applications, participating in high-level pre-assessment and strictly examine forms for improving the bidding rate. Thirdly, research proposal and scientific research must be done with concerted efforts. Bie Ronghai pointed out that after the first party congress, the school on the goal of building a teaching and research university, issued a series of documents such as the "Opinions on Strengthening Scientific and Technological Work", "Administrative Measures for Scientific Research Funds", "Rewarding Measures for the Science and Technology" and " Introduction Measures for the High-level Talents as Zhongjing Scholars". These documents provides the system guarantee for the development of science and technology. Bie Ronghai emphasized that the Science and Technology Department and the Personnel Department should further improve the top-level design, implement the tasks of the high-level talents introduction and improve the management and service levels. Each department must ideologically attach importance to create a strong academic atmosphere, to ensure the management system and the effective work measures. Under the high standards and strict requirements, all scientific research workers must have broad vision, solid research ability and good academic atmosphere. Through all scientific and technological staff making persistent efforts and working together, the scientific and technological work will strive for a new and greater breakthrough in 2019.
Xu Jiangyan asked the participating departments, units and all personnel to arrange the scientific and technological work according to the first party congress and the 13th Five-Year Plan. Combined with the actual situation, all personnel should conscientiously implement the spirit of the meeting, clear the tasks, strengthen the measures, and effectively do various tasks in the declaration of state fund projects in 2019 to make the some contributions for the transformation and development of the University.
