A Glimpse of Zhongguancun Life Science Park
Zhongguancun Life Science Park, as an important support for the main platform of Beijing International Technology Innovation Center” consisting of Zhongguancun Science City, Huairou Science City, Changping Future Science City as well as Yizhuang Economic and Technological Development Zone, is a highland for the development of pharmaceutical and health industry that integrates four state-level functional zones, that is, Zhongguancun Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone, National Comprehensive Demonstration Zone for the Expansion and Opening-up of the Service Industry, Free Trade Pilot Zone, and the core area of high-level talents in Beijing. After 20 years of development, the Park has attracted multiple state-level research and development institutions to have their presence here, brought together a group of globally top scientists and hundreds of high-level talents. There are more than 600 innovative pharmaceutical enterprises and over 300 high-end talents, including 21 academicians, 4 scholars supported by the Cheung Kong Scholars Programme, 50+ personnel entitled to special allowance from the State Council, 7 academician workstations, 20+ post-doctoral research centers, 10+ national engineering research centers and key laboratories, 16 R&D centers at provincial and ministerial level, and nearly 3,000 sickbeds in the medical institutions, thus forming the trend of bringing together the whole industry chain including basic research, R&D pilot test, production and circulation, and terminal healthcare. It has been built into one of the parks with the most concentrated innovation resources in the field of life science in China, which is an innovation engine for the development of the pharmaceutical and health industry in Beijing.
