|Disciplinary Development Planning|
Not long ago, Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Natural Science Foundation jointly inked a framework document to enhance strategic collaborations in the area of disciplinary development planning. A book series named "China’s disciplinary development strategy in the coming decade” were also released at the same event. The two organizations jointly launched a study of disciplinary development planning for 2011-2020 in April, 2009. Some 600 specialist and scholars, including 196 academicians, made themselves part of the study. The efforts led to a master report on disciplinary development planning, and 19 reports for individual disciplines.
Under the cooperation framework, Chinese Academy of Sciences and National Natural Science Foundation will set up a joint steering panel and a joint working group, inviting a qualified strategic research team to work on disciplinary development planning, with the results stemmed from the study being shared by the two organizations.
