Key Laboratory of Xinjiang University officially approved
A few days ago, the Ministry of Science and Technology issued a document that Xinjiang University’s “provincial and ministerial joint construction of the State Key Laboratory of Carbon-based Energy Resource Chemistry and Utilization” was officially approved. This is the first provincial and ministerial national key laboratory approved by our school, marking our school's major breakthrough in the construction of a national scientific research platform.
As an important part of the national key laboratory system, the provincial and ministerial joint construction of the State Key Laboratory is an important measure of the country's strategic layout for regional economic and social development, solving the bottleneck problem of regional innovation-driven development, and improving regional innovation capabilities and local basic research capabilities.
Xinjiang University’s “Provincial and Ministry Co-construction of the State Key Laboratory of Carbon-based Energy Resource Chemistry and Utilization” was launched in 2018, mainly centered on the national energy development strategy, guided by the needs of the development of Xinjiang’s chemical and new materials industry, and took advantage of carbon-based energy. With the goal of efficient use of resources, focusing on common key scientific issues and technical bottlenecks in the comprehensive utilization of carbon-based energy resources, basic theoretical research is carried out in the three directions of chemical foundations of carbon-based energy resources, carbon-based functional materials, and catalytic conversion of carbon-based energy resources. Applied basic research and achievement transformation, serving the development of Xinjiang chemical industry and new material industry. At present, the key laboratory building with a total area of 18,000 square meters has been initially completed and is scheduled to be put into use in the second half of this year. The establishment of this laboratory has created better basic conditions for the high-quality training of graduate students in Xinjiang University and has played an important role in promoting the school's technological innovation and connotation development.
During the construction and operation of the laboratory, Xinjiang University will strictly implement the construction of the supporting unit in accordance with the relevant requirements of the "Provincial and Ministry Co-construction of State Key Laboratory Management Measures (Trial)" and the "Provincial and Ministry Co-construction of State Key Laboratory Construction and Operation Implementation Plan" And management responsibilities, to provide a full range of guarantees for the construction and development of the laboratory, and strive to promote the construction of the laboratory into an important base for organizing and carrying out high-level scientific research in the region, gathering and cultivating outstanding scientific research talents, and promoting domestic and foreign cooperation and academic exchanges , Give full play to the supporting role of scientific and technological innovation in the western region, and continue to serve the regional economic and social development.
