On January 3, 2024, Prof. Jia Weiping, the Dean of the Institute for Health Strategy and Development at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, along with Executive Dean Wu Jiarui, and Chen Hongmin, the Vice Dean of the Industry Research Institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, attended a consultative meeting hosted by the Shanghai Municipal Government. They contributed their suggestions for the 2024 "Government Work Report" (draft for comments). The meeting was chaired by Gong Zheng, Deputy Secretary of the Shanghai Municipal Committee and Mayor, with city leaders Chen Tong and Peng Chenlei in attendance.


During the meeting, Wu Jiarui and Chen Hongmin made themed presentations. Wu Jiarui focused on the role of national major scientific and technological infrastructures in Shanghai's development as an "International Center for Science and Technology Innovation." He proposed three suggestions: firstly, to leverage these infrastructures as key support for scientific and technological innovation in Shanghai; secondly, to integrate the scientific and technological innovation forces of the Yangtze River Delta region through these infrastructures; and thirdly, to use these infrastructures as the primary means for Shanghai to open up and lead in global scientific and technological innovation.


Chen Hongmin, addressing the cultivation of composite industry application talents, proposed innovations in integrating industry and education mechanisms. He advocated for the active creation of a "second-hand" market for training applied talents, enhancing the match between talents and strategic emerging industries. His recommendations included strengthening top-level design to systematically address bottlenecks and pain points in talent cultivation and transformational development, encouraging two-way integration between industry and education to explore new models for talent cultivation and development, and utilizing industrial park spaces to continuously enrich the scenarios and connotations of the "second-hand" talent market.
