XJTLU national research outputs hit record high


The quantity of research projects at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China has reached a record high this year.

12 XJTLU scholars from home and abroad successfully passed the qualification of NSFC in 2018 and received around RMB 3.5 million in funds.

Professor Dechang Xu, head of the Research Administration Office at XJTLU, said: “The 12 scholars have contributed to XJTLU’s good reputation with their innovative achievements. Some of these achievements can be transferred to industry, and can fuel innovation in the local economy.”

The 12 projects fall under different categories of NSFC funding, including General Programmes, Young Scientists Fund, and International Young Scientists Fund.

The research involved spans the disciplines of mathematics, biology, architecture, and management, and each project took three to four years of work to reach this stage of NSFC funding approval.

The NSFC, as one of main channels that supports elementary research in China, focuses on providing funding to researchers in research institutes, universities, and colleges that have good research conditions and strengths.

It aims to push the basic research development of science in China, promoting the development of scientific disciplines, and the discovery and cultivation of technological talents.
