The 1st China-US Young Scientists Forum was held in Beijing on August 5th. Vice Minister Wang Zhixue and Charg¨¦ d'Affaires of US Embassy Robert Wang addressed the launching ceremony. Young scientists from 16 Chinese research institutes and 39 American universities discussed a number of issues including sci-tech innovation in the forum.
This forum, co-sponsored by MOST and the U.S. Embassy, is an important outcome achieved by State Councilor Liu Yandong and U.S. State Secretary Hillary Clinton in the second round of high-level consultation meeting on China-US people-to-people exchange last April.
With the support of MOST and U.S. National Science Foundation, the American participants to the forum finished their two-month study in Chinese host organizations.
The 2nd forum will be held in Washington this fall.
