Ningbo launched the program of training leading and top-notch talents

The scheme for the program of training leading and top-notch talents in Ningbo has been released recently. Based on the 4321 Talent Project, this new program aims to break the bottleneck of high-end talents shortage in Ningbo with higher goals and more powerful moves.

The training of a group of academic and technological foregoers with high academic and technological attainments and strong innovative abilities, who can play an important leading role in the economic development, is also the target of this program.

The training program is to be carried out in five-year cycles, with the aim of selecting and cultivating 1400 distinctive young and middle-aged talents in three levels for each cycle. Among them, 100 talents are in the first level, 300 in the second level and 1000 in the third level.
