Cut the red tape that hinders innovation and make incentive policies more lively and "profitable"

Let these people sitting on the bench, let these people who have been engaged in basic research and cutting-edge exploration for a long time and may not be able to produce scientific research results, have a peace of mind; in terms of technological innovation, combine universities, scientific research institutes, and enterprises in At the same time, the government is responsible for building a good platform, a good policy and legal environment, and providing good services; in terms of resource guidance, we must consider economic and social development, comprehensive enhancement of national strength and competitiveness, and national security How can science and technology better focus resources on some of the problems encountered by ordinary people in terms of their sense of gain?
The reform of the science and technology system should focus on people, and tap the world’s largest talent "rich mine"
Reporter: What is the focus of the reform of the science and technology system?
Wang Zhigang: The reform of the scientific and technological system still revolves around people. How can scientific and technical personnel be motivated, have a kind of enthusiasm, and even have a state of "ascetic". When it comes to technology, I am excited. The government is to pass reforms to ensure that the scientific research activities of these scientific and technical personnel who are willing to devote themselves to science and technology and who can make contributions can be free from distractions, and can be recognized and praised by the society.
Build the national innovation system well, demand strength from science and technology
Reporter: What are the priorities of the Ministry of Science and Technology this year?
Wang Zhigang: In 2018, we must first build the national innovation system. This is an overall top-level design. In other words, in terms of scientific and technological innovation in our country, systemic questions need to be answered first, as to what, who will do it, what kind of organizational system, the interrelationship of the various subjects, and what goals to focus on. In addition, technology itself has its own laws. Why should we grasp technology? One is to ask for law from science and technology, and the second is to ask for strength from science and technology. How do you want this "power"? We must clarify the laws of technology itself. How science is transformed into technology, how to become productivity and motivation, these are the areas where the Ministry of Science and Technology and the vast number of scientific and technological personnel need to answer and play a role.
