International Innovative Transformation Bioindustry Incubation Center
The first National Biosensing, Biochip and Nano-biotechnology High-end Forum held by Chinese Society of Biotechnology and Institute of Biophysics of Chinese Academy of Sciences was held from Oct. 20 to 21 at Sino-European Center, Lecong, Shunde, Foshan.
Why does a high-end biomedical forum connect with Lecong?
So far, Shunde Lecong is building six industrial platforms. There are two incubation centers, International Innovative Transformation Bioindustry Incubation Center and Evian International R&D Building. An industrial accelerating platform located in Hele Industrial Park covering 40,000 square meters contains biomedical R&D and pilot scale test organizations. And there are three industrialized platforms, Guangdong Innovative Transformation Bioindustry Park, Shunde Life and Health Industrial Park and Shanghua High-end Intelligent Manufacturing Industrial Park.
On this basis, Shunde and Lecong spare no efforts in turning Beiwei industrial area into an entrepreneurial zone for biomedical technology talents and a life and health characteristic town that transforms achievements. The total planned area is about five square kilometers.
According to statistics, Lecong has set up “Academician Workstation”, built a series of national, provincial and municipal scientific research projects, and successfully introduced over 25 innovative teams from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Southern Medical University to settle. Nearly 430 high-end talents are introduced, including 69 doctors and 101 masters. It adds up to 106 applied patents with 51 authorized patents.
Business strategic town fosters emerging industries
In recent years, Lecong gives full play to the brand effect of Foshan New City, Sino-German Industrial Service Zone and key zone of Sino-European Urbanization Cooperation Demonstration Area. With the development strategy of “led by openness, driven by innovation” in Shunde, it promotes the integration development of Lecong town.
Two years age, Lecong government turned about 666,666 square meters of commercial land into industrial land so as to build a biomedical industry platform that pushes independent innovation development in the Pearl River Delta Area——Guangdong Innovative transformation Bioindustry Park. The industry park jointly built by Shunde district and Lecong town undertakes innovative transformation of advanced technology in biological medicine home and abroad.
Policies combined to attract innovative and entrepreneurial talents
In February this year, Shunde released Measures for Implementation of Foshan Shunde Promoting Biomedical Industry Development. The measures involve the whole industry chain of biological medicine. Research and development with achievements can be awarded 5 million yuan the most.
Shan Lei, a medical doctor graduated from pharmaceutical college of the Second Military Medical University, is now working for a biotechnology company. Thanks to the industry and human resource policies in Shunde, in August this year, he started a business and set up Foshan Kaichuan Biomedical Technology Co Ltd. In September, he performed road show for project financing at the 2017 Biomedicine International Investment Cooperation Seminar held in Sino-European Center.
