Traditional Industry Develops Towards Knowledge I...
By Wang Chun


The fourth joint conference of Shanghai for promoting construction for national innovation-oriented pilot urban area in Yangpu District was held in Bay Valley Science and Technology Park on December 5. Our reporter learned from the conference that so far, Yangpu District has initially stepped on the road of successful transformation from traditional industry to knowledge innovation and development. According to the initial estimation of Government Performance Evaluation Center, Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, Yangpu District has initially achieved the goals as expected and completed construction for national innovation-oriented pilot urban area at the initial stage.


Since Yangpu District became a national innovation-oriented pilot urban area in 2010, the district government has followed the requirements of “one main line and four focuses” proposed by Ministry of Science and Technology, grasped the cores and keys of transformation and development for urban area, adhered to the principle of “cooperation among three districts and innovation-driven”, given full play to its advantages of integrated science and technology resources, stimulated the district’s vitality for innovation and creativity, and accumulated many duplicable and propagable experiences. So far, Yangpu District has made new breakthroughs and progresses on driving integration between the district and universities and constructing specialized incubation service system. Yangpu District has made new leap forwards on integration of finance and technology, construction for alliance of industry-university-research cooperation, radiation to the Yangtze River Delta and implementing international strategies, and has made new measures on transforming from a administration-oriented government to a service-oriented one.


As the largest downtown area in Shanghai, Yangpu District boasts of one hundred years of history in terms of “universities, industries and city planning”. It is a district with abundant talents of science, technology and education. Yangpu District is also an old industrial base of Shanghai. Since the 1990s, Yangpu District has been making active exploration on transformation and development of urban areas. Yangpu District adheres to technological innovation, attaches greater importance to nurture knowledge-based modern service sector, and hi-tech, strategic emerging sectors, e.g. information service, electronic and information, cloud computing, Internet of things and smart grid, focuses on enhancing the level of urban industries and business, traveling, culture and sports service sectors, and has completed transformation from an “industry-based district” into a “knowledge innovation-based district” at the initial stage.


Vitality comes from market, and dynamics comes from reform. While Shanghai is accelerating to build itself into a science and technology innovation center with global influence, Yangpu District is actively constructing an important bearing area for this science and technology innovation center. Yangpu District will actively construct a place of origin of innovation knowledge, a cluster zone of technology transfer and an incubation zone of new industries, continue to make a breakthrough in the bottleneck of systems, focus on studying bottleneck problems, e.g. the technological system in universities, intellectual property rights and construction for third-party research centers, attract more innovation-oriented institutes at home and abroad to settle in Yangpu District, and look for a suitable coordinate in global science and technology innovation network based on the construction for National Eastern Tech-Transfer Center.


On the joint conference, 17 member units made discussions on several issues, e.g. implementation of “Supporting Measures” for Yangpu District to construct national innovation-oriented pilot urban area, and specific measures on the next step. Zhou Bo, Deputy Mayor of Shanghai, made a speech on the conference. He said that to accelerate the construction for national innovation-oriented pilot urban area, first, Yangpu District should continue to intensify the “cooperation among three districts”, enhance its influence in innovation-oriented urban area, strengthen its leading force in new industries and increase its radiometric force for regional innovation. Second, make improvement on innovation governance system, construct good regional ecology for innovation, and make efforts on system innovation and optimizing environment for innovation. Third, strengthen efforts on organization and leadership, accelerate to launch a new round of pilot construction, form a binding force and strengthen the efforts of supervision and testing.
