I. Introduction of "Youth Talent Promotion Project"
In accordance with the requirements of the Opinions of the CAST on the Implementation of the Innovation and Service Improvement Project of the CAAI, the CAST implements the project of "Youth Talent Promotion Project", guiding and supporting the CAAI to explore and innovate the selection mechanism of young scientific and technological talents, training mode and evaluation standard, cultivating a large number of outstanding young scientific and technological talents and building a national reserve team of high-level scientific and technological innovation talents, becoming an important human resource guarantee for building an innovative country and realizing the Chinese dream.
This project is initiated by the CAST, which supports the specific implementation of the national associations or association consortium of CAST. The implementation work is mainly divided into declaration, evaluation, implementation, inspection and acceptance stages. We will vigorously support young scientific and technological talents under the age of 32 who have great innovation ability and development potential by means of awards and stable support instead of subsidies. We will provide stable support for every young scientific and technological talent for three years, focusing on supporting independent research topics and designs, participating in high-level international academic exchanges, and working in influential international non-governmental science and technology organizations. We aim to help them make outstanding achievements in the golden age of creativity, strive to grow into academic and technological leaders with excellent moral character, outstanding professional ability, strong sense of social responsibility, comprehensive quality, and international vision, and also become an important reserve force for high-level leading talents and high-level innovation teams.
