Wan Gang: To Give Young Scientists More Opportunities, Treatment No Longer Gauged with Seniority
Update:Apr 16th, 2012

In February, 2012, the results of China’s Greatest Award for Science and Technology were unveiled. 92-year-old Xie Jialin, former deputy director of the Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and the 90-year-old Wu Liangyong, director of the Institute of Architectural and Urban Studies, Tsinghua University, won the award. Commentaries said that the age of the winners showed an upward tendency, which needed to be curbed to give more opportunities to the young. Yesterday, Wan Gang, vice chairman of the 11th CPPCC national committee, president of China Zhi Gong Party and Minister of Science and Technology, made comments on the issue. He noted that the awards were granted according personal achievements and he hoped that young scientists below the age of 35 could be given more opportunities.
