Beijing released a new platform to further help start-ups transfer science and technology results to commercial and industrial products or services, local authorities said on Tuesday at an opening ceremony of a mass entrepreneurship and innovation week held in Beijing.
"We tried to use the concept proof plan to fill the gaps of scientific research institutions and the science market, aiming to develop scientific and technological achievements," said Yu Jun, Party secretary of Haidian district.
It's also the first time that the local district released the plan in the country, as a way to further boost scientific innovation.
