Cixi strives to open up the "last mile" of technology services

As an intangible cultural heritage inheritor, Sun Wei, the person in charge of Cixi Yueyao Celadon Co., Ltd., has been committed to integrating modern technology into traditional celadon firing in recent years, leading the company to develop into a high-tech enterprise. However, he is not very clear about the application requirements for high-tech enterprises and the identification process. A few days ago, after learning his problems, the Cixi City Science and Technology SME Service Station sent someone to guide him and provide relevant services, which solved his urgent need.

In order to carry out in-depth "I solve problems for enterprises" activities and supplement grass-roots scientific and technological service forces, Cixi recently took the lead in setting up technology-based SME service stations in all districts and counties (cities) in Ningbo. During this period, Cixi Science and Technology Bureau cooperated with the "8718 Cixi Platform" to integrate various science and technology intermediaries in the area to form a science and technology service alliance, and set up service stations in towns (subdistricts) to provide full-cycle, trustee-based services and one-stop professional service for the upgrading of technology-based small and medium-sized enterprises to high-tech enterprises. Up to now, the city's first batch of technology-based SME service stations have been listed in 6 towns (streets).
