Computer Network Information Center (CNIC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and Committee on Data for International Science Council co-hosted hybrid events to launch the Global Open Science Cloud (GOSC) on June 28, 2021. With initial funding from the CAS, the project will be coordinated by CNIC and CODATA as an important early project of CODATA Decadal Programme: Making Data Work for Cross-Domain Grand Challenges. The project will promote discussions towards agreements and preliminary demonstrations on technical and policy alignment between established and emerging open science platforms.
The Platform of Advanced Photon Source (PAPS) technology R&D project started operation on June 28, with equipment such as the radio frequency and cryogenic systems, and magnet measurement and X-ray optical inspection devices coming into service. Among the first group of research platform projects in Beijing, the PAPS project is the first to pass scientific acceptance and begins operation. PAPS provides strong support for construction, testing and technology R&D for the High Energy Proton Source (HEPS).
A research team from the Institutes of Science and Development developed a more scientific and reasonable method for technology structure discovery. A research team from the Institutes of Science and Development (CASISD) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, developed a more scientific and reasonable method for technology structure discovery. The purpose of the report is to describe current global technological landscape, enabling experts and policymakers to intuitively observe the development trend of frontier technologies and allow science and technology to better serve the economy objectively and thoroughly, said Prof. PAN Jiaofeng, president of CASISD.
Professor CHEN Chunying was named winner of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Environment Prize, according to the announcement released this Tuesday June 8th Beijing time, for her pioneering contributions in exploration of nano–bio interface. Professor CHEN is now working for National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research on nano–bio interface provides fundamental insights into the fate of nanomaterials in biota and the environment.
A total of 3,718 new and newly recorded species have been discovered in Yunnan Province from 1992-2020, according to a press conference in Kunming on May 22. The statistics is shown in the Checklist of New and Newly Recorded Species in Yunnan (1992-2020), which is released at the press conference of the 2021 International Biodiversity Day on May 22 in Kunming, issued by the Department of Ecology and Environment of Yunnan Province.
The sixth poloidal field superconducting coil (or PF6 coil), the heaviest of all six superconducting magnet coils of ITER (short for International Thermonuclear Fusion Experimental Reactor) project, successfully sits at the bottom of the tokamak pit in ITER site in France on Apr. 21 local time, under the supervision of Fusion for Energy, witnessing another international collaboration moment.
