China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MST) Tuesday renewed its offer to fund overseas professionals who contribute to technology innovation projects for the country.
The MST published instructions on how to apply for the government-run "Thousand Talents" funding program, which was unveiled in late 2008 to attract leading overseas professionals to work in China.
Professionals with foreign doctoral degrees, aged up to 55, who had served as senior technology executives in world-renowned firms or professor-level experts at prestigious overseas universities or research institutes were eligible, said a statement from the ministry.
The candidates should be able to resolve key technology problems or have developed innovative products with good market prospects in China's much-needed key science research areas.
The statement said qualified candidates could work in China full-time or part-time, and for at least two months a year.
Application documents can be downloaded from the "Thousand Talents" program's official website, www.1000plan.org, and should be submitted by Dec. 31.(Source: Xinhua)
