On the morning of July 30th, the 2023 International Advanced Manufacturing Young Scientists Conference opened in our city. Nearly 400 scientists, entrepreneurs, and outstanding young innovators from both China and abroad gathered to discuss technological innovation, advanced manufacturing, and future development. Zhejiang Provincial CPPCC Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Jiusan Society Zhejiang Provincial Committee Ye Zhengbo delivered a speech. Eighteen academicians, including Yang Huayong and Qiu Aici, attended, and Municipal Party Secretary Wen Nuan gave a welcome address. Ten domestic and international academicians sent congratulatory messages, and city leaders Shi Huifang and Tan Zhigui were present.

Ye Zhengbo highlighted that Shaoxing, with its rich history and deep cultural roots, has increasingly become a hub for young talent and innovation since actively integrating into the Yangtze River Delta region. In the context of China’s manufacturing sector advancing to higher positions in the global value chain, the importance of talent, especially young talent, is becoming more evident. He expressed hope that Shaoxing would further open up and deepen reforms, focusing on strengthening market ecosystems, increasing investment in talent acquisition and technological innovation, tackling key core technologies, and improving the conversion of scientific and technological achievements. This would boost enterprise vitality and market competitiveness. He sincerely invited participating experts, particularly young scientists, to seize the opportunities of the times, lead high-quality development, shape the future with technology, drive progress with innovation, and build consensus through exchange, contributing their youthful, dynamic, and diverse wisdom to Zhejiang’s high-quality development.

Wen Nuan welcomed the guests on behalf of the city’s four main committees. He stated that advanced manufacturing represents the future direction of the manufacturing industry. Shaoxing will use this conference as an opportunity to focus on creating top-tier industrial clusters, deeply implement the “No. 1 Development Project” for digital economy innovation, and accelerate the construction of a modern industrial system with advanced manufacturing at its core. The city aims to foster a top-tier innovation ecosystem by adopting more proactive, open, and effective talent policies, strategically developing innovation bases and facilities, and building a high-quality development trial zone integrating education, technology, and talent. Shaoxing also aims to create a top-tier development environment by thoroughly implementing the “No. 1 Reform Project” to optimize the business environment, enabling more people to realize their ambitions and achieve their dreams in Shaoxing. He encouraged attendees to visit Shaoxing for sightseeing, inspections, cooperation discussions, and investments, working together to build a new hub for advanced manufacturing and to write a new chapter of mutual benefit and win-win development.

During the opening ceremony, the Emerald Global High-Impact Scholars in Advanced Manufacturing list and the Chinese Association of Automation’s Annual Innovation Demonstration Units in Advanced Manufacturing list were released. The Emerald Global Outstanding Award and the JIMSE Global Young Scientists Award in Advanced Manufacturing were presented. Several major industry, talent, and strategic cooperation projects were signed on-site. The Youth Editorial Board for “Intelligent Manufacturing and Special Equipment” held an appointment ceremony, and the Yangtze River Delta Universities Jiusan Society Members Innovation and Entrepreneurship Consortium and the International Advanced Manufacturing Research Institutions Consortium were established.
