In his speech, Tan Zuojun affirmed the achievements of the city's construction of science and technology innovation and entrepreneurship in Northeast Asia since the city's science and technology innovation conference last year. Tan Zuojun pointed out that Dalian is currently in a critical period of accelerating the revitalization and development of the "two pre-zones". The transformation of development mode, optimization of economic structure, and transformation of growth momentum have entered a crucial stage. More than ever before, it is demanded to rely on scientific and technological innovation to provide new development momentum. The whole city should thoroughly study and implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's important statement on scientific and technological innovation, further strengthen the sense of responsibility, urgency and mission, face problems directly, face difficulties and promote the implementation of the innovation-driven development strategy in Dalian.

 

Tan Zuojun stressed that grasping innovation is to promote development and seeking innovation is to seek the future. It is significant to give full play to the role of innovation as the first driving force for development, stimulate the vitality of the innovation subject, add new momentum to development and lead high-quality economic development. First, building innovation-driven development should be regarded as the primary focus, implementing the implementation opinions and the three-year action plan on accelerating Dalian's independent innovation demonstration zone, giving full play to the radiation-driven role of Jinpu New District and the high-tech zone, promoting the linkage development between the independent innovation demonstration zone and the free trade test zone, and pushing the construction of Dalian's independent innovation demonstration zone to take the lead in the country. Second, the construction of a modern economic system should be focused on. By improving the supply of high-quality technology, and playing the role of the main body of innovation, it could carry out the precise layout of the industrial chain in the future-oriented field and accelerate the transformation of scientific and technological achievements. Third, focus on stimulating innovation. The overall efficiency of the innovation system can be improved by promoting the supply-side reform of science and technology and deepening technology and finance's policies and regulations to support and improve the protection of intellectual property rights. Forth, efforts should be taken to consolidate the foundation of innovation. By releasing the bonus of talent policy and vigorously training leading talents in science and technology innovation and improving the service level of talents, Dalian will become an "incubator" where talents gather together and a " dream home" for talents to start their own businesses. Fifth, global science and technology innovation resources must be allocated. By speeding up the introduction of high-end innovation resources, actively integrating into the global innovation network and deepening innovation cooperation with Shanghai, the level of open innovation will be improved. Sixth, efforts should be made to promote mass entrepreneurship and innovation, actively create an innovative atmosphere, entrepreneurial ecology and venture capital environment, and make Dalian a hot spot for innovation and venture capital.

 

Tan Zuojun emphasized that it is necessary to promote the construction of the Northeast Asia Science and Technology Innovation and Venture Capital Center by the city's efforts to ensure a new progress every year and a new level in three years. The leading group should do a good job in guiding and making decisions on major issues, the office of the leading group should do a good job in organization and coordination, and all relevant departments and member units should be linked up from top to bottom and form a joint force.

 

It is necessary to speed up the implementation of policies, strengthen the interpretation and training of science and technology innovation policies, and get through the " last kilometer" of policy implementation. It is necessary to strengthen supervision and assessment, formulate and improve the indicator system, and gradually increase the weight of scientific and technological innovation in the performance evaluation of work. It is necessary to increase publicity and guidance, establish a clear orientation of respecting, maintaining, encouraging and supporting scientific and technological innovation in the whole society, and create a social atmosphere of daring to innovate, encouraging success and tolerating failure.

 

Tan Chengxu asked all districts, counties, pilot districts and relevant departments to carefully sort out the existing problems, list the timetable, task book and specific methods, and make every effort to implement them thoroughly. He pointed out that all departments at all levels should raise their political standing, strengthen their political responsibilities, fully implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's important statement on scientific and technological innovation, unswervingly put scientific and technological innovation in a more prominent position, accelerate the creation of innovative advantages for revitalizing development, and fully promote the implementation of the decision-making arrangements of the CPC Central Committee, the Provincial Party Committee and the Municipal Party Committee.

 

Tan Chengxu emphasized that all regions must adhere to the problem-oriented and concentrate on achieving new breakthroughs and new progress in the key aspects of technological innovation. The independent innovation demonstration area should speed up the planning and establishment of space and actively explore the " one area, more parks" model. High-tech zones should thoroughly implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions and make every effort to create a high ground for high-tech industries to gather and transform and upgrade. Jinpu New District should do more in innovation and development. Other regions should take the initiative to learn, copy and promote the successful experience of independent innovation demonstration areas, and do a good job in key work such as the construction of major scientific and technological projects. It is necessary to comprehensively optimize the technology and industrial layout, accelerate the implementation of the Dalian Action Plan of Made in China 2025, and comprehensively promote the development of the new generation of information technology. It is necessary to implement the "project service secretary" system, accelerate the settlement of major national scientific and technological infrastructure in Dalian, and promote the construction of major innovation function platforms. And the in-depth implementation of the military-civilian integration innovation project and the Strategy of "Double Creations" will further enhance the level of innovation and development.

 

Tan Chengxu emphasized that it is necessary to vigorously implement the project of cultivating innovative enterprises, optimize innovation ecology, encourage industry leaders to take the lead in establishing industrial technology innovation alliances and patent alliances, implement relevant incentive policies, further play the role of science and technology intermediary, and make full use of excellent innovation resources at home and abroad, so as to strengthen cooperation with high-end innovation resources and further consolidate the foundation of innovation development. It is also necessary to accelerate the transfer and transformation of scientific and technological achievements, integrate the scientific and technological market, unblock the docking platform, link up the transformation channels, give full play to the power of technology and finance such as venture capital, and establish the concept that protecting intellectual property rights is protecting innovation, so as to further release the momentum of innovation and development. Efforts should be taken to deepen the reform of management and service in the field of science and technology, the reform of universities and research institutes, and the reform of investment and financing systems. By speeding up the construction of the investment mechanism for scientific and technological innovation and improving the scientific and technological policy system and innovation and development mechanism, a dynamic environment for innovation and development will be created.

 

Tan Chengxu asked all regions and departments to strengthen their responsibilities, carry out key tasks, implement policies well, strictly supervise the accountability system, create a good atmosphere, and promote the implementation of policies and measures for scientific and technological innovation with resolute actions.
