Innovation is the first driving force, and innovation support must be strengthened in order to realize the conversion from old driving powers to new ones. In recent years, Yinzhou District has actively integrated into national, provincial, and municipal strategies such as the National Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone, the Industrial Innovation Service Complex, and the construction of the Yongjiang Science and Technology Innovation Corridor. It has also established innovation platforms and grasped the main body of innovation and has made every effort to create a "tropical rainforest-type" innovation ecosystem, which constantly incubates and stimulates innovation vitality, and the scientific and technological innovation index ranks first in the top 100 districts in China.
So far, Yinzhou is home to 350 high-tech enterprises, with 48 of them included in the "2019 China Gazelle Enterprise Data Report". A total of 371 national technology-based SMEs have been included in the database, and 210 high-tech seedling
enterprises have been selected by the city of Ningbo, ranking the first in the city. From January to November 2019, the district's social R & D investment was 4.338 billion yuan, an increase of 18.8% year-on-year, and the high-tech industry added value reached 19.072 billion yuan, an increase of 8.1% year-on-year, the proportion of which reached over 46.9% of the enterprises above designated size.
The main body of innovation is the enterprise. In order to nurture and strengthen technology-based enterprises, Yinzhou District has continued to improve the “micro-growth, small-rise, high-growth” echelon cultivation mechanism for technology enterprises, and formed an orderly succession team for the joint development of innovative start-ups, high-tech seedlings and high-tech enterprises . At the same time, the company's research and development investment subsidy policy is echelon-designed. Based on national and municipal policies, the district-level policy further highlights the implementation of key rewards for enterprises with large R & D investment, high proportion and large increase, and guides enterprises to accelerate the full coverage of R & D and innovation carriers and the establishment of a "R & D reserve" system. In this way, the combination of GSP and key demonstration incentives could be achieved.
Stimulating the vitality of innovation is inseparable from an excellent innovation ecosystem. Yinzhou District strives to optimize the layout of the "one corridor and multiple poles" innovation space, promotes the coordinated development of the main body chain, platform chain, talent chain, financial chain, ecological chain, and service chain of the innovation ecosystem. From internal circulation to open collaboration, innovation power is introduced from outside sources to endogenous originality, innovation policy is changed from specific preferential treatment to basic inclusive benefits, and innovation mechanism is shifted from government-oriented to market-oriented. Three national incubators and seven mass entrepreneurship spaces have been established. A incubation system of crowd-creation spaces, incubators and accelerators is fully in shape. The number of national-level dual-innovation platforms owned by Yinzhou District continues to maintain the first in the city.
Only when scientific and technological achievements are transformed into productivity can the value be maximized. Yinzhou operates in an "independence + collaboration" manner. Through selection mechanisms and market cooperation mechanisms, it is supplemented by its own full-process business system to maximize the success rate of technology docking and achievement transformation. By the end of November 2019, the district had completed a total of 1.88 billion yuan in technology contract transactions, a year-on-year increase of 53.7%.
In 2020, Yinzhou District will continue to take the lead in the “sci-tech competition” as a guide to intensify the doubling of innovation dynamism. Through the promotion talent plans, it will continue to gather innovation elements, provide fertile soil for innovation, and effectively enhance the leading role of innovation in supporting high-quality growth
