China Daily, November 11th (Reporter Xu Dan) On November 11th, the “Land-Sea Covenant” national online media trip to Chongqing – the theme communication of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor (Chongqing Station) went deep into the Western (Chongqing) Science City and made on-site visits to the outside world. The Cooperation and Exchange Center, Jinfeng Laboratory, and Peking University Chongqing Big Data Research Institute explore how the Western (Chongqing) Science City, as an important engine for implementing national strategies, can effectively promote the construction of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor.
Create advantageous industries and embark on the road of “Chongqing goods going overseas”
The construction of the Western (Chongqing) Science City is a major deployment to promote the construction of the Chengdu-Chongqing twin-city economic circle.
You can quickly understand the essence of this city at the Foreign Cooperation and Exchange Center, which looks like a “fingerprint”.
The center covers an area of about 26.6 acres, with a total construction area of about 14,000 square meters. It contains functional areas such as exhibition halls, press halls, conference rooms, and observation decks. It is a new window for external display and communication in the Western (Chongqing) Science City.
In March this year, Chongqing held a conference to promote the construction of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor. Immediately afterwards, the Western (Chongqing) Science City benchmarked and released the “Chongqing High-tech Zone Five-Year Action Plan to Accelerate the Construction of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor (2023-2027)”. The plan proposes that by 2027, the channel network and logistics system will be more complete, the efficiency of factor collection and distribution will be highlighted, and economic and industrial development will be deeply integrated with channel construction.
In addition to expanding channels and logistics capabilities through the Xiyong Comprehensive Bonded Zone, cultivating advantageous industries and accelerating the integration of innovation chains, industrial chains, capital chains, and talent chains are the secrets of the “science”, “industry” and “city” of the Western (Chongqing) Science City.And these are fully presented in the exhibition hall
Consolidate the advantageous industry biopharmaceutical industry into a “trump card”
Only with characteristic industries can we have a “trump card” in the construction of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor. For the Western (Chongqing) Science City, the biopharmaceutical industry is the trump card to consolidate advantageous industries.

Arriving at the Jinfeng Laboratory located on the bank of Fengqi Lake, five golden-red buildings are dazzling under the blue sky and white clouds. As far as the eye can see, there is a 4.8-kilometer leisure promenade around the lake, a patchwork of colorful forests, and a water trestle flying over the lake.
As a “new model” of Chongqing laboratories and a “new force” of national laboratories, since its inauguration in June 2022, Jinfeng Laboratory has taken “next generation diagnosis of major diseases” as its core mission and accelerated the construction of scientific research platforms.
On May 14 this year, Jinfeng Laboratory held the 2022-2023 annual scientific and technological achievements conference, and released 7 scientific and technological innovation achievements on site, covering basic research on immunopathology, digital pathology equipment, pathological artificial intelligence diagnosis, high-energy scientific research platform, etc. Many achievements are the first in the country.
Cai Jialin, the commentator of the Chongqing Jinfeng Laboratory Exhibition Hall, said that in the future, Jinfeng Laboratory will promote various work with more open ideas and reform measures, attract the world’s top scientific and technological talents, carry out original innovation, break through “stuck neck” technology, and form a better There are many innovative achievements that are recognizable to Chongqing, promoting a virtuous cycle of technology-industry-finance, and striving to build an important source of life and health innovation as soon as possible.
Attack advantageous industries, attract talents and solve the “stuck neck” problem
After six years of development, the New Western Land-Sea Corridor needs to accelerate the creation of a higher-level inland opening-up highland to better radiate the west, serve the whole country, connect ASEAN, and integrate into the world. Talents are particularly important.

Behind the rapid and steady progress of the construction of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor, the Western (Chongqing) Science City has always played an important “promoter” role – whether it is building a high-level interconnection infrastructure network, improving the “soft connectivity” level of corridor rules and regulations, It is still a pilot project in talent introduction.
In 2022, the Western (Chongqing) Science City will promote the implementation of a pilot reform mechanism for the co-education and sharing of talents from universities in Chongqing and new R&D institutions. This innovation mechanism pilot provides strong support for interdisciplinary and cross-field scientific research and innovation teams through universities providing turnover staff for public institutions, new R&D institutions providing career platforms, and the government providing special talent policy support.
Peking University Chongqing Big Data Research Institute is a Chongqing municipal public institution with independent legal personality jointly organized by the Chongqing High-tech Industrial Development Zone Management Committee and Peking University under the guidance of the Chongqing Municipal People’s Government. The institute is led by academicians and experts, and is personally led by outstanding scholars in related fields, forming a high-level scientific research team of more than 200 people.
The reporter learned that the institute has made major breakthroughs in the “stuck” basic software direction, independent innovative industrial software direction, and application software direction for major strategic needs. It has built 3 centers, 15 laboratories, 4 Academies and enterprises jointly built joint laboratories and established 4 technology enterprises. There are more than 30 original scientific and technological achievements under research, and nearly 20 have been publicly released. We have hosted or participated in more than 50 horizontal and vertical projects, applied for more than 150 intellectual property rights, and been approved as a national postdoctoral research workstation.
