New Materials Science and Technology City develops with talents

In speeding up innovation and development, Ningbo National High-tech Zone (the New Materials Science and Technology City) develops its talent business by building the platforms, innovating the policies and optimizing the environment. 
In 2015, the zone introduced over 5000 talents, including 255 returned talents, 54 target talents for the national or provincial "1000-talent plan" or the municipal "3315 talent plan", and 10 overseas engineers. 15 talents at the zone were listed among the "1000-talent plan", 10 individuals or teams listed among the "3315 talent plan", and 25 talents individuals or teams selected as "entrepreneurial elite". The total number of the introduction of overseas high-end talents hit the historical high. There were over 160 scientific achievement transformation projects at the zone in 2015. Ningbo National High-tech Zone ranks No.17 among all the 129 national high-tech zones in the country in the list issued by the Ministry of Science and Technology, showing that the regional core competitiveness of the zone has significantly enhanced. 
To introduce the overseas talents, the high-tech zone cooperated with the Hanhai Z-park of the Silicon Valley to co-build the talent incubators by leasing spaces and purchasing services. 
The incubators have their own independent offices and incubating space, and by hiring professional talent introduction representatives, they cooperate with the local overseas study agencies to select the overseas talent projects on the spot. By carefully choosing a group of advanced and promising projects with the intention of starting business back at home for pre-incubation, the incubators provide free entrepreneurial guidance and specialized training for the development of the projects, help them to contact the investors and provide a preparatory space for the settlement of the entrepreneurial individuals or teams at the high-tech zone. When everything is ready, the projects will be introduced to the related innovative and entrepreneurial platforms for further cultivation and development and even the final industrialization. 
In cooperation with the incubator of the Silicon Valley, the high-tech zone took the lead in the city to open an office for overseas talents affairs. As a publicity window and a talent-introducing bridge, the office assigns the talent-introducing tasks by means of service outsourcing, strengthens the incentives for talent introduction and introduces the target talents at the national, provincial, municipal and district talents. 
In 2015, the "overseas entrepreneurial base", with an area of 13,000 square meters and located at the Ningbo R&D Park, was put into use, attracting a group of talents from the national and provincial "1000-talent plan", the municipal "3315 talent plan" and the "high-tech entrepreneurial elite plan". Meanwhile, the base cooperated with the Shanghai Pegasus Brigade to build the "entrepreneurial workshop" and introduce the overseas talent projects by introducing the new talent development models, which has helped to expand the base scale and build the "starting business in Ningbo" brand

It is learned from the recently held Talents Summit Forum as well as the 15th Anniversary of Ningbo Association for Doctors that by the end of 2015, about 5000 overseas talents with doctor's degree have settled down in Ningbo for business and innovation. 
The soaring talent agglomeration effect of the city comes from its ever improving talent development environment. In recent years, Ningbo has been focusing on the construction of the comprehensive talent affairs brand of "blue intelligent valley" with high-end talents, innovative elements and entrepreneurial spirits. By carrying out such talent policies as the 25 new policies for talent development and the talent administration reform experiment zone pilot, building the leading talent attraction products, and accelerating the construction of such talent platforms as Ningbo New Materials Technology City, International Marine Technology and Ecology City, Yuyao Industrial Park and Ninghai Industrial Park of the "1000-talent Plan", Ningbo has attracted a large group of high-end talents, including a lot with the doctor's degree. 
Attendees of the summit forum also include Yang Fujia, Deputy-chairman of China Association for Science and Technology and Academician from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Xu Qunji, Academician from Chinese Academy of Engineering, and some municipal officials like Yang Liping, Zhang Minghua and Li Taiwu.

Ningbo to build new model for modern vocational education

It is learned from Ningbo Education Bureau that as a "window" of he vocational education in the city, Ningbo Foreign Affairs School has been invited to open a branch in Deva of Romania, marking the settlment of Ningbo’s vocational education model in a foreign country. 
To better serve the regional economic transformation and upgrading, Ningbo has accelerated the construction of the new model of modern vocational education in recent years. 
It has become a consensus for the vocational schools to produce the talents demanded by the market. With this guideline, all the schools have conducted their disciplinary adjustments to actively adapt to and serve the local industrial development by meeting the demands of the model transformation of the regional economic development and the industrial structural adjustment. For example, Zhejiang Business Technology Institute invested 150 million yuan to build an industrial research base in Ninghai County, and Ningbo Polytechnic co-built the Digital Technology Park in cooperation with Beilun Economic and Technology Development Zone and Ningbo Information Industry Bureau. 
As a major municipal project for the "upgrading strategy", the rail transit construction needs a lot of technicians. To meet the demand, after rounds of negotiations, Ningbo Education Bureau and the Rail Transit Commanding Office started to open the "rail transit classes" in Ningbo Vocational Education Center and Yinzhou Vocational Education Center in 2010.
Some enterprises even moved their laboratories and production lines into schools. At the end of 2005, Haitian Group invested three million yuan to set up a CNC machine tool center in Ningbo Polytechnic and officially launched the "mold CAD/CAM teaching" program, and in 2006 the group invested ten million yuan to build the Haitian Department Building. The cooperation between school and enterprise and the integration of classroom and workshop have greatly strengthened the students’ practical ability and improved their competitiveness in the job market.
