Professor Yao Runming of CQU under Recruitment Program of Global Experts participates in “UK-China Science & Innovation Cooperation (London) Achievement Exhibition”

The “5th Meeting on UK-China High-level People-to-People Exchange Mechanism” is held in London, UK from December 4 to 7, 2017. Vice-Prime Minister of the State Council is in the UK on a visit during the period and participates in the Meeting and related activities.

In response to the UK-China Joint Statement on building a global comprehensive strategic partnership for the 21st Century, the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China holds the “UK-China Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Series Activities” during December 6 and 7. Vice-Prime Minister Liu Yandong of the State Council and Prince Andrew of the British Royal Family respectively deliver their speeches at the meeting themed “UK-China Science and Innovation Forum Shaping the Golden Era Together”. Wang Zhigang, vice minister of MOST and secretary of Leading Party Members' Group, and Joe Johnson, the minister of state of BEIS of the UK sign the “Strategic MOU on UK-China Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation” on behalf of the two countries. The event focuses on the development themes of UK-China science and technology innovation, and centers on the innovation strategy policy, challenges and trends, as well as the specific action plan for the future. The highlights of the event include UK-China Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Development Forum, UK-China Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Achievement Exhibition, and UK-China Youth Innovation & Entrepreneurship Competition. At the same time, a series of exchange and discussion activities will be held on topics such as commercialization of science and technology achievements, innovation investment and scientific and technological finance and protection of intellectual property rights.

Professor Yao Runming of CQU under Recruitment Program of Global Experts participates in the “UK-China Science and Technology Innovation Cooperation Achievement Exhibition” on behalf of the team of the project titled “a study on low-carbon city heating and cooling method and mechanism based on climate response and building coupling”, which has been jointly supported by the National Natural Science Foundation and Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Vice-Prime Minister Liu Yandong of the State Council visited the Exhibition and displayed the research findings of the Project. Professor Yao Runming is received by and shakes hand with Vice-Prime Minister Liu Yandong. Professor Peter Guthrie of the Cambridge University, a fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering and winner of OBE, introduces the Project briefly to Joe Johnson, the minister of state of BEIS of the UK , as one of the British responsible person for cooperation of the Project.

The research findings of the project team are exhibited in forms such as posters, brochures and video clips, and include establishment of building information system based on 3D urban area model, investigation into building indoor thermal environment in the study area, generation of future regional meteorological data, dynamic simulation of wind environment in urban areas, and simulation of use intensity of building energy in urban areas. During the event, high-level exchange is conducted based on the research project, and the project achievement gets promoted. This event is aimed to inspire more opportunities for joint science and technology innovation between the UK and China .

The project titled “a study on low-carbon city heating and cooling method and mechanism based on climate response and building coupling” is a key international cooperation project under the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and is supported jointly by NSFC and EPSRC, with research funding of 3 million yuan plus 1 million pounds. It was launched in 2015 and is expected to be completed in 2019. The Project is directed jointly by Chongqing University and Cambridge University, and the participants in the Project include the University of Reading, Loughborough University, Imperial College London and Zhejiang University.
